Entered into rest at St. Lawrence Lodge on Saturday July 2nd 2022 at the age of 87 years. Beloved Mother of Wendy Onstein (Charles), Bruce Weir (Mimi) and Paula Dixon (Robert). Left to mourn the loss of their dear Grandma, Brad (Kaylee) Carrie (Will), Jeannie, (Caleah) Indy, Kara, Lucas and great grandson James. Margaret is also survived by her stepson David Scott (Heather) and their son Tim (Nicole), as well as Jason and Matthew Hands who she considered part of her family.
Margaret Brown was born June 29, 1935, in Carley’s Corners, the daughter of the late Carrie Edwards and James Brown. Margaret was predeceased by her husband Purvis Weir, brothers Gordon Brown (Marjorie survives) and Douglas Brown (Gloria survives). She is survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Margaret lived in Algonquin for 60 years. She was active in the Algonquin United Church and was President of the UCW for many terms. She also enjoyed spearheading the canteen at Hands Auction Hall for many years, which launched her notoriety for pie making. She volunteered with the CPHC organizing their luncheons at the Algonquin Library. She loved to play bridge and was a diehard fan of the Toronto Blue Jays. She was happiest when surrounded by her family either in her home or at the family cottage on the St. Lawrence River.
Margaret has been described as a pillar of the Algonquin community. She was generous and kind to all of those who crossed her path. She always had time to listen and help her neighbours and she will be missed by them.
Family and friends are invited to celebrate her life on July 16th at the Algonquin United Church. Friends may call from 12 to 1PM followed by service and interment at Maynard Cemetery. Reception at the Algonquin Church Hall after interment.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Lawrence Lodge 3rd floor Activation or the Algonquin United Church UCW.
The family will be forever grateful for the team at St. Lawrence Lodge 3rd floor for all their care and support of our Mom and of us.
