Margaret P. Griffin


Margaret P. Griffin (Pat, Trish) passed away at her home surrounded by her family on April 1, 2021. She was born March 17, 1947, in Summerside, PEI, Canada, the daughter of Olive A. (Tuplin) Sakalowski and Fredrick J. Thomas.

Margaret retired from MIT, where she continued to learn science. She loved life, family, watching her birds, taking rides, lighthouses and enjoyed being by the water. She was a great storyteller and had an infectious laugh.

Margaret is survived by her brother, Gordon, and wife, Lorna; her closest cousin, Phyllis, and husband, Larry Peterson; three children, Rozie Closson, Scott Griffin Jr. and April and her husband, Daniel Atwater; grandchildren, Andrew and Chase Atwater, Tamarah Closson, Teshah Hibbard, Scotty, Rosalyn and Layne Griffin, Cheyenne and Tony Ranco; many great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews; the Griffin family, and lots of special friends.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
