We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

 Sponsors are welcome to participate and support WaterlooObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please contact us !

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.

We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

Bates MargaretBATES, Margaret Alexandra (nee Harrison)  -  Died peacefully on Monday, May 14, 2018 in her ninety-sixth year.

Beloved sister of Isobel Harris of Guelph and special aunt to Ruth Robinson (Ron), Ralph Harris (Antoinette) and Warren Harris (Mary Jo), great aunt to grand niece (Reta), six grand nephews (Ben, Jamie, Chris, Vincent, Neil and Liam) and seven great-grand nieces and nephews.

Maggie was an artist, educator, member of the Arts and Letters Club Toronto and an AGO docent. She lived and taught in North Toronto for several decades before making her home in Guelph at the Elliott Community. Maggie was never happier than when she was surrounded by nature especially at her cottage on Big Hawk Lake in the Haliburton Highlands, her back garden, or sketching at the side of a country road.

Special thanks to Colleen Alberts and Friends of the Family staff who provided her comfort and companionship during her stay in Guelph. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Lee and the staff of the Wellington at the Elliott Community for their kind and compassionate care.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will take place later in May; contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details.
