Margaret Joan (née Davis) Lloyd
It is with great regret and heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful and very much loved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend, Margaret Joan (Davis) Lloyd, Sunday October 7, 2012 in her eightieth year.
Margie’s quiet strength of character, compassionate nature and strong sense of family was developed growing up in Stellarton, Pictou County. She married her husband, Clarence, in London, Ontario after he completed his flight training in Centralia. The newlyweds soon moved to Vancouver as Clarence pursued his military pilot career at Sea Island in Richmond; then Regina; Grostenquin, France; and, finally Ottawa. Although she enjoyed family vacations in Lake Garda, the French Riviera and other European attractions, Margie’s most loved trips were to Pictou County and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia to visit with her extended family.
Margie was proud of her home and children. She was the link that held us together despite our chaotic lives, teaching us the value of personal integrity, love of animals and each other.
She leaves behind to celebrate her life: six daughters: Barbara (Jim), Anita, Sharon, Linda (Rob), Wendy (Bill) and Heather (Corey); two sons: David (Julie) and Stephen (Julie); nine grandchildren: Leigh (Christianne), Becky (Steve), Crystal (Marc), Matthew, Daniel (Veronique), Adam (Heather), Ryan, Nathan and Dylan; four great-grandchildren: Charlotte, Jacob, Jackston and Ainsley; brother Gerald (Barbara); half-sister Darlene (Gary); brother-in-law Jack; and, her fierce four-legged protector, Bear.
Margie was predeceased by her husband Clarence; three brothers: Thomas, George and James (Gladys); sister Clementine (Jack’s wife); son-in-law Archie (Sharon’s husband); parents: Thomas Blackwood and Barbara Ann (Gordon) Davis; step-mother Maxine (Rogers) Davis; paternal grandparents: James Joseph and Mary Jane (MacDonald) Davies; and, maternal grandparents: Richard and Clementina (Williams) Gordon.
We thank the amazing ICU team at the Ottawa General Hospital for working so hard to try to help us bring mom home.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Lafleur Funeral Home & Chapel, 874 Notre-Dame St., Embrun, Ontario, 613-443-3286.A graveside service was held at the Ramsayville United Church Cemetery on October 10, 2012.
