Margaret Elizabeth Ennis, fondly known as ‘Tiny’, was born to Norah and Abraham Samuels in Runaway Bay, Jamaica on November 4, 1940. She grew up in a loving home, surrounded by her four siblings; taking care of her grandmother and learning the values of compassion and family. Her upbringing shaped her into the remarkable woman she became.
In 1969, Margaret made the life-changing decision to migrate to Toronto, Canada. She embraced the opportunities that awaited her in her new home and embarked on a career at the Hyatt Hotel. She later joined the Four Seasons Hotel, where she dedicated an impressive 35 years of service as a supervisor of housekeeping.

On May 19, 1970, Margaret entered into a beautiful union with the love of her life, Cedric Ennis. Together, they shared many cherished moments and built a strong foundation for their family.

She found joy in exploring new places and made it her mission to care for her family in every possible way. Margaret's love for music led her to sing hymns, providing solace and joy to those around her. Her warm and endearing nature was evident in her affectionate greetings, often responding with words like "hello darling" or "hello Sweetheart."
After a brief illness Margaret succumbed to her illness on June 22, 2023. Margaret leaves behind a legacy of love and kindness.
