Margaret White (nee Bell)

Posted By Egan Funeral Home On March 25, 2020 @ 9:18 am In Bolton Area,Obituaries | 28 Comments

Margaret White (nee. Bell) passed into her Lord and Saviour’s arms on Sunday, March 22, 2020, in her eighty-ninth year at Campbell House in Collingwood, Ontario. She was in the company of her family while listening to her most cherished hymns sung by her favourite Irishman – Daniel O’Donnell.

Margaret was the beloved wife of the late Lenard Frederick White, a loving mother to Maureen Light (David) and Elaine White. She was the cherished grandmother of Meagan, Robert, Grace, Liam, Morgan and Sydney, and the dear sister of Maureen Killen (Jim), Iris Wilson, the late Emily Allen, Edward and Harry Bell.

Born in Belfast, N. Ireland, Margaret ventured to Canada in 1957 to visit her brother Eddie, who was temporarily residing in Toronto. She immediately fell in love with the country and soon met the love of her life, Len, in which a beautiful 44-year love story would follow until his passing in 2004; he would remain forever in her heart.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Dr. Meghory, Chartwell Georgian Traditions, Dr. Klages and the nurses and staff at the Meaford Hospital and Campbell House for the excellent care that they took of our mother; we are eternally grateful.

The family is planning a small private service at this time out of concern for the COVID-19 pandemic. They look forward to celebrating Margaret’s life publicly with her friends and extended family at a later date.

Remembrances to Hospice Georgian Triangle Campbell House or Meaford Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by Marg’s family.

Hi Maureen,
So very sorry for your loss. You have the comfort that your mom is with the Lord but separation is hard.
Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of the things unseen.

Elaine and Maureen,

So sorry to hear of your Mom. I’ts been years since I’ve seen her – I’ve been out west now 24 years… but always think of days with your folks at the cottage, back in the late eighties, always hospitable, loving and caring, with fun sense of humour. Which obviously has carried on to you. My thoughts are with you, XO

Elaine, Maureen and Families-we are deeply saddened to hear of your Mum’s passing. Such a huge part of our lives and leave us with such deep, meaningful and loving memories off your her. She will always be remembered for her smile, her genuine spirit, her laugh, her love of her family and anyone connected to them! Each one of our children’s births and so many key family moments all encompass moments with your Mum in them that she will never be forgotten! The one moment of happiness within this sad moment is that she is up in Heaven with the Man she loved to the core of her being and they are smiling down on how incredible their family really is, even in moments of sadness.
Much love, prayers and best wishes- Kerrey/Jay/Addison, Jake, Kia, Abbigail, Owen & Emma.
