Obituary

Margaret Coulson passed away peacefully on March 20, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Health Centre in Toronto.
Born in Kirkland Lake on October 26, 1937 to John and Edith Rocks, Margaret was the elder sister of
Kathrine Baxter (John). Following the pre-mature death of their mother, Margaret and Kathrine moved
to Guilford, Ontario where they were welcomed into the farm life of Art and Gladys Wright’s family.

Pre-deceased by her husband, Bob, Margaret missed him dearly over the past 13 years. Together they
had enjoyed countless hours of cottage life in Haliburton and were active and enthusiastic members of
the Mimico and Clarkson communities. Family was the most important focus of Margaret’s life, and she
will be greatly missed by her three children Ken (Kathleen), Sandra (Kevin Wilbur) and Stephen
(Stephanie Perkins). Margaret was extremely proud of her six grandsons, Alex, Mitchell, Duncan, Jayson,
Scott and James, all of whom provided her with much love and attention. Margaret greatly enjoyed and
was keenly interested in the lives of all of her extended family - the Coulsons, the Wrights, the Williams
and the Stemps. She especially looked forward to hearing about the adventures of all the young people
who called her “Grandma” or “Aunt Marg”.

Margaret will be remembered for her unwavering determination. She knew how she wanted things
done and once she had set her mind on something there was no changing it. For that we are all grateful.
Due to the current health crisis, there will not be a service for Margaret. We will honour her privately
now but will celebrate her life when all who knew and loved her can come together. If you wish to make
a charitable donation in her honour, please consider St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation – the Bachir

Remembering “Aunt Marg”
Aunt Marg’s quiet presence and bright smile will be missed by all of us. I remember many chilly mornings on the cottage dock huddling under my towel when she shamed me into going for a swim with her. Always supportive and up for entertainment she never missed a chance to watch the “kids” waterski, whether it was Alex, Sandra or Uncle Bob. I learned early on that although she was soft spoken and calm most of the time she was no push over and you didn’t want to see her mad! I was usually quietly watching Sandra getting in trouble for something we had done when Aunt Marg would suddenly turn and sternly tell me that she knew it was all my idea! She was never wrong about that.

She taught me many important lessons and I can hear her voice saying “Cathy, you can catch more bees with honey than you can with vinegar”. Always thoughtful, she also loved pranks as much as the rest of us. The Roos Family received many Valentines cards over the years from a “Secret Admirer” who lived on Banwell Rd. She was also the one with the biggest bag of confetti at our wedding!

At one of Sandra’s birthday parties, maybe her 10th, Aunt Margaret gave us all a Christmas cactus as a party favour. I thought it was so cute and have moved that plant with me from university to Timmins to Sudbury. I have frozen it, baked it and not watered it for months, still it has lived on. Every time I water that plant it reminds me of her. Last week it was covered in beautiful red flowers.

I knew Aunt Marg most at the cottage. I have many fond memories of her at Thanksgiving while peeling potatoes with my sister (she would always open the bag with the string, never cut it!), beside a campfire at night or on the dock on Saturday afternoon eating Aunt Kathy’s snacks.

One of my most cherished memories of her was a gift she gave me for my graduation from highschool. She saved one of my great-grandmother’s (GG’s) small purses, wrapped it up and gave it to me spontaneously before my prom. Inside she put a silver dollar from the year that my Auntie Sandra was born, and she wrote a note about the purse and how she hoped that I would use it as much as my GG did. This purse is one of my most cherished items. It reminds me of both her and my GG, and the style is something I would have chosen myself. I have used it on many special occasions throughout my life since she gave it to me, in fact, it is the only clutch that I own. I plan to use it for my wedding this summer, and I know she would be very happy to know that I’ll be carrying it that day.

This gift is an example of one of the many times Aunt Marg was generous and caring to me – she is one of the most thoughtful people I have known and I have learned from her how a small action can impact someone else’s life.

I will miss her very much, and I am thankful for the opportunity to have known such a special and beautiful woman.
