Margaret Spencer Obituary



In Loving Memory of

Margaret Spencer

May 7th 1931-November 24th 2023

Margaret wrote her own life story across the black board, with beautiful precision. On the top left corner May 7th 1931 on the right November 24th 2023. A strong dash between the dates reflects her determination, perseverance and zest for life. Margaret came from a proud, hardworking Irish family. Her parents William and Mary Ann lovingly created 8 supportive siblings: (Robert (Jean/Marg) Ellen Jane Henry (Clifford), Elizabeth, Anna May Croft (Orland) Tisha Sutton, William (Marianne), John (Jeanette) and last, but not least David (Darlene/Wendy) These 8 siblings and their partners created their own families, making Margaret a very proud auntie. Margaret found love herself in the form of a French ballroom dancer from Timmins. He swept her off her feet and danced his way into her heart. Their love grew, they married and soon a little girl named Susan grew in their heart, filling their lives with a whirlwind of emotions, laughter, pride, experience and frustration A long healthy life brought with it many opportunities for Margaret to spread her love , wisdom, compassion and kindness as a sister, a sister-in-law, a auntie , a wife , a mother , a mother-in-law , a grandmother, a Teacher, and an outstanding confidant, and friend to so many. She left no stone unturned and faced things head on! Margaret, continually faced life with honesty, integrity, extreme thoughtfulness. Margaret was a hard one to keep up to! Her dedication to a healthy active lifestyle created a buzz of energy in her beloved community. Her passing will come as a shock too many because she had an ageless exuberant lifestyle. Her greatest pride in life was her family, especially her two grandsons Christopher Annan and Colin Gervais. She and Buck insured that both two boys and Susan experienced the best that life has to offer. Margaret became a strict but fair teacher to so many children. Her retirement came at the opportune time, enabling her to travel. Margaret grew as a person thanks to the Tim Hortons gang of South Porcupine that became her treasured inner circle. We are so grateful to these wackadoodle friends, who opened her mind and broadened her life experience. Who knew that a cup of Tim Horton’s coffee daily would broaden her horizons?  Thank you to those who took time out of their busy lives to help make her life easier. The family sends their gratitude to Dr. Quirion, Michelle Hicks, Theresa, and the staff at TDH for all their care and compassion. A special shout out to Shauna for agreeing to my mother‘s wishes of being home, to Dr. Vaithilingham for always taking care of our family.
