Margaret Rose Lawrence sadly, but peacefully, left us to begin the next leg of her journey on April 5, 2021.
Marg was born on March 10, 1933 in Wingham, ON, she was a daughter of the late James and Delphine (nee Fitzpatrick) Bell.
Loved by her husband Howard for more than 59 years, Marg will be forever missed by Howard and her family; Greg, Brad (Andrew), Jeff (Jocelyn). She was incredibly proud of and loved her grandchildren Nicholas and Emily.
Marg was the best sister to her younger brother Joesph Bell and spent many years working by his side on the farm, something she loved to do.
In her younger years Marg was a professionally trained opera singer, training at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. She met and married Howard in 1961 and moved to Meaford in 1967. Marg spent many years in the most challenging and rewarding career – looking after her family and renovating her home with Howard. In the early 1980’s she went to work at the Meaford Nursing Home and spent 17 years as their secretary before retiring at the age of 65.
Marg was a very caring soul who worried for and about everyone’s wellbeing. She forged long and steadfast friendships with people of all ages. She had a love of reading, CNN, and looking after her grand-dogs! Marg was incredibly open minded and could and would have a conversation about anything. She was able to laugh at herself, had a great sense of humour and loved life. ‘We already miss you and we will carry your light forever.’
Due to COVID-19, a memorial service will be held at a later date when it is safe for family and friends to gather.
