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
