Margaret Wilkes was born in Trinity Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland, one of seven children (four boys and three girls) of Mary and Adriel Preston. She moved to Embree at the age of ten and started grade five there. She went to Lewisporte Pentecostal high school where she completed grade 10.
Margaret was saved and enrolled as a Junior Soldier when she was 13 years old and had a long up-and-down faith journey. She started coming to Lakeshore and recommitted her life to Christ in 2009 and was enrolled as a Senior Soldier in 2010.
Margaret has three children and five grandchildren, and married Rick Wilkes in 2011. In addition to spending time with her children and grandchildren, Margaret enjoys watching hockey and curling in the winter, and spending time with Rick and their three dogs at the trailer in the summertime. Her favourite thing to do is to relax with a good book or a word search puzzle.
Margaret is involved with our seniors’ programs and Community Care Ministries and is the custodian at the church.
