Marguerite Sargent

Marguerite Sargent

Aug. 14, 1924 – Oct. 16, 2013

Marguerite Sargent, a 41 year resident of Roland Road, Fulford Harbour, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at her home in the ECU at Lady Minto.

Marguerite was a past Worthy Matron of Eastern Star and was also active in Seniors For Seniors (as it was known then), Meals on Wheels, the Ham Club and the Blue Water Cruisers.

Marguerite was very adventurous, riding pillion with her husband Jim on a motorcycle trip around Australia in her 50’s, and accompanying Jim circumnavigating Vancouver Island on a 29’ sloop in her 60’s. She also did 2 extensive walking tours in England with a friend. She and Jim were enthusiastic snowbirds and had many friends around Canada and the US.

Marguerite was a devoted, loving and enthusiastic grandmother. When the great-grandchildren began to arrive the same love was extended to them.  

Marguerite was predeceased by her husband Jim and her son Daniel. She is survived by her daughters Sylvia (Dave Dykes) and Laura (Dave Williamson); her grandchildren Harvey Dykes (Elissa), Jack Dykes (Heather), Rob Dykes (Sheri),  Kay Christianson and Britt Christianson; and her great grandchildren Jacintha Dykes, Cooper Dykes and Emmanuella Dykes.

In lieu of flowers donations to the Lady Minto ECU Comfort Fund would be appreciated. No service at the request of the family. A celebration of Marguerite’s life will be held at Ruckle Park next summer.

Many thanks to Dr. Reznick, Jean Southgate and all the staff at Lady Minto ECU.

Rest in peace Mom.

You deserve it and you will be missed.
