MOORE, Margaret Petrie (Marg)


(Feb. 2, 1923 – Jan. 21, 2016)  Peacefully at Mauno Kaila Koti in her 93rd year.

Devoted wife of the late Robert (Bob) Moore. Loving mother of Susan Stone (Gene), Michael Moore (Fern) and Stephen Moore (Heather). Grandmother of Jennifer, Maureen (Jeff), Mark (Chantal), Nick, Marty (Brittany), Matt (Laura) and Jana (Jeff). Great-Grandmother of Taylor, Zoey, Tristan, Ryan, Finley and Teyton. Good friends of Eileen Haynes, Marion Frank, Betty Mihell, Joyce Armstrong, Eileen Bailey, Kristie and Steven Roberts.

Margaret immigrated to Toronto, Ontario from Aberdeen, Scotland at the age of 6 months old with her parents Nick and Rosie Skinner and her sister Audrey.

Marg enjoyed going to church and loved to hear Reverend McLeish play the bag pipes. She loved Robbie Burn’s dinners but never ate the haggis, her sister Audrey did. Margaret sang with the Senior’s Choir and was “keeper” of their scrapbook for several years.

Marg was full of life, lived her life to the fullest and was kind to all; she asks everyone to do the same.

We thank the staff at the Ontario Finnish Rest Home for the excellent care they have given Marg since October 2010.

At Margaret’s request there is no visitation or funeral service.

She is doing the Charleston on her way to heaven to be with her “Bob” wearing her red dress and boa. Her closing remarks to all are “Cheers” and “Rock On”.

Memorial contributions to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre (492 Wellington St. East, 705-759-2522).
