Robertson MargROBERTSON, Margaret Nest 'Binty' (née Mason-Jones) - It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the death of a much-loved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Binty died peacefully in the presence of her son and daughter.

Predeceased by her beloved husband Ernest Owen (Robbie) in 1986.

Loving mother of Andrew David Robertson (Barbara) and Rosemary Margaret Bassett (Damian).

Loved by her grandchildren Jenny (Ben), Lisa (Kent), David (Erin), Fiona (Matt) and Geoff (Allison) and 13 great-grandchildren.

Predeceased in 2016 by her sister Dorothy (Isty).

Born in Cardiff, Wales, the daughter of Dr. Archibald Mason-Jones and Violet Pritchard Price. Binty's schooling was interrupted by the war. She did light nursing duties until she joined the Army. On April 17, 1941 she was encouraged to attend a dance where she met Robbie who was stationed at the local RAF base. They were married in 1944 and set up home in England.

Binty and Robbie emigrated from England to Canada in 1952, first residing in Ottawa and then Toronto before settling in Cobourg in 1960. Binty was active in the Cobourg community and at St. Peter's Anglican Church.

A celebration of her life will be held in St. Peter's Anglican Church, 240 College Street, Cobourg on Saturday, February 11th at 2:00 p.m. with visitation from 1:00 p.m.

Our sincere gratitude for the support received from Collingwood General and Marine Hospital and Campbell House Hospice.
