BETSAYDA, Margarita - Passed away on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
We have all been blessed to know Margie and feel her very deep love. She is kind and generous; ready to help on a moment’s notice. She volunteered her lunchtimes for several years to help with Meals on Wheels in downtown Toronto, and will drive across town in a heart-beat to help a friend or family. She never judges folks looks or race, creed or sexuality; but always manages to see you for the beautiful person you are inside.
You can always tempt Margie with food or a drive. She loves to explore food markets of different cultures for new and exciting treats to share… She is happy to drive to Buffalo for some shopping, a spa day in Ottawa’s Nordik Spa, or a same-day round-trip to Montreal for bagels and smoked meat!! Margie sang for 25 years in Annunciation church choir, and has the voice of an Angel. She loves all types of music, but Motown, R&B and musicals are her favorites.
Margie enjoys dragon-boating, roller-derby, Spartan Races, yoga, massages and naps in hammocks! Margie loves painting, sewing quilts, knitting, and above all reading comics and books! (don’t bend any pages or you will be sorry!) Margie loves her nieces Robyn and Dhillon and her Nephew Jack with all of her giant heart. She still has room for the rest of us too.
Margie worked in banks for 20+ years, in a role that helps folks deal with the death of their loved ones. She is fiercely proud of her work, and always goes above and beyond for both clients and co-workers. She is a bit of a rebel, and always does what she feels is Just.
We do not know why God chose to take Margie home so early. Maybe she just lived life too fast, or loved too deeply… We think God needed her to perfect his Heavenly Choir, and of course, Margie can never to refuse to help! Margie is always ready for adventure, and now she has the whole universe to explore. Fly on little Bee!
While Margie loves flowers, she would rather continue to help those in need.
In Margie’s name, please feel free to donate to Second Harvest. Their goal is to rescue as much perishable food as possible and distribute it to those in need across 1000 organizations in Ontario and BC. This helps both people and the environment.
