Today is a very sad day for people in the doll community. Margaret Matsui from My Favourite Doll passed away. She was not only the face of MFD and one of the most favourite doll dealers but was actively engaged in the doll community and conventions, even hosting the first two Fashion Royalty conventions in Canada. W Club sent this lovely note:
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Integrity Toys and the W Club’s long-time friend and dealer, Margaret Matsui of My Favourite Doll.Marg had been privately battling cancer and leaves behind her best friend, husband and business partner, Rick, to whom she has been together with for 44 years and married for 36 years, and two loving sons. Rick and the family will continue to run the business and provide the outstanding service that MFD has always been known for, although Marg will always remain the face of My Favourite Doll.Marg was a dear friend of and collaborator with Integrity Toys, as well as an important fixture in the doll collecting community. She was an initial supporter of Fashion Royalty and co-organizer of the first two conventions with Alain, as well as a presence working at many others. She was kind, generous and a wonderful spirit and will be greatly missed by all.In lieu of flowers or cards, per Marg’s wishes, you may consider making a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in Marg’s name at:
