SEPTEMBER 22, 2012 | BY  | – And still counting

Yesterday  (September 21, 2012), marked the centenary of Margaret Irene Osborne who was born to John and Rebecca Babb on September 21, 1912 in the village of Hague, West Coast Demerara.  Born into a family in which there were seven siblings, Margaret spent her early days on the West Coast, attending St Jude’s Anglican School and later attended sewing classes.

On June 3, 1944, Margaret married Herbert Osborne. The union produced three children; Orlton, Jeanette and Ian Osborne.  Margaret and Herbert moved their young family to Linden.
She continued to be a homemaker and stayed at home while her husband worked in the Bauxite industry.  Margaret was known to be a loving and committed family person who was feisty and strong willed but calm and strong.
