Marguerite was born on May 13, 1937 in Disraeli, Quebec, Canada to the late Armand and Delima (St. Cyr) Jalbert. She came to the United States in 1965. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, shopping, watching the cooking channel as well as cooking/baking, knitting, and walking at Hubbard Park in Meriden. She will be remembered for being such an amazing, caring, and thoughtful person who was always on the go and thinking of how she could help others (her next mission if you would).

She is also survived by 2 sisters. She was predeceased by her husband Walter J. Dreaher as well as 2 brothers and 2 sisters.
