(nee ENGLOT)

April 21, 1944 - January 9, 2022

Sadly, but peacefully, at the age of 77 years, with her family by her side, Mom left us to be with Dad.
Left to feel her loss are her children and their spouses, Melanie and Bob, Christin and Will, Bill and Carlyss; and her greatest blessings, her grandchildren, Joshua, Quinn, Michaela, Barrett, Carys and Callan.
"Margie" was born during the war, loved spending time on the family farm, was a goody two-shoes in school, moved away to further her education which led to a career in physiotherapy, and eventually came back and married her high-school sweetheart. Together Mom and Dad gave us the most happy, stable, and normal childhoods. We could count on big Christmas dinners with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. Summers meant camping and fishing, a trip out West. Our friends were always welcomed, free to come over and stay for the weekend.
If you knew Marge, you know she loved to travel. She was just as happy skiing on a mountain in the Rockies, as she was on a beach in Puerto Vallarta. Having travelled Canada and the U.S., while we were young, Bill and Marge made Mexico their winter destination for about 15 years. Once on her own, she would travel with friends on tours of Europe, a cruise of the Mediterranean and a very spiritually meaningful trip back to Israel for a second time. The most special trips she took though, were the ones with her grandkids multiple times to Disney, and we look forward to the next time we can all get in the same boat again on her favourite ride, It's A Small World.
It is impossible to express everything she did for us. She helped us raise her grandchildren. She went to the soccer, hockey, baseball games, and the Christmas concerts and graduations of each grandchild. She delighted in each and every one of their accomplishments.
She was a loving and caring daughter to her parents. She cherished her sister, her brothers, and their spouses. She adored her nieces and nephews. She forged many deep bonds with lifelong childhood friends and neighbours and co-workers, who became dear friends. We witnessed her caregiving nature firsthand as she supported Dad through his illness. It is a testament to her that she was able to stay in her own home supported by family and friends, especially her best friends, her granddaughters, most notably Michaela. She will forever be a presence in our lives.
No definitive plans for a gathering have been made at this time.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I can only think of one person I’ve known longer than Margie. What fond memories I have of her. When I think of her I also think of Beausejour, the Englot home and the farm. To Margie, I was the city slicker. She could beat me at Jack’s, Snap and Leg Wresling AND she could run faster than I could. We always laughed at our common memory of the Roosters chasing us at the farm. As I said she could run faster than me and as a result, the Rooster always caught me rather than her in the chase My memories include collecting bottles on number 44 Highway for candy money, her reading me Hardy Boy Books, Baloney Island and just sometimes laying in the grass imagining all the shapes in the clouds as they floated by. There are many others. Margie grew up to be a beautiful caring human being and I know she would’ve been a wonderful wife and mother and grandmother. She cared very much for her mom, Auntie Mae, uncle Swan and her brothers and sisters. Let’s not forget how dear she was to the infamous and at times maddening auntie Margaret. I’m sure there were lots of others Rest in peace dear Margie I will always remember you Cousin David - Posted by: David Smith (Cousin) on: Feb 07, 2022

  • We were so sorry to hear about Marge’s passing. As a classmate and childhood neighbour, I can relate to the lovely obituary written by her family. May she rest in peace. - Posted by: Joe and Pat Lesko (Friend ) on: Feb 07, 2022

  • Bill: The loss of a mother is such a great loss that others cannot fill. My deepest condolences to you and your family during this time. Friend. Herb Kozera - Posted by: herb Kozera (Friend) on: Feb 07, 2022
