It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Margaret Anne Graham. She peacefully fell asleep in death in her 87th year on the morning of October 6, 2021 with family by her side. Margaret was a faithful witness of her God, Jehovah, for 60 years and she found comfort in her Bible-based hope of a resurrection to a paradise earth as promised at Psalm 37:29: “The righteous will possess the earth and live forever on it.”
She was predeceased by her parents; Robert and Ruth Lyons, Siblings; John Lyons and Helen Moore. She is lovingly remembered by her brother William (Sharon) Lyons,

Margaret was a hard-working mother of six, dedicated employee of Bell Canada for many years and a proud grandmother to thirteen grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, knitting, crafts and music. She was loved and will be missed by all. Heartfelt thanks are extended to the dedicated staff at Riverview Gardens who provided Margaret kind support throughout her stay, enjoying her laughter and cheerful disposition.
There will be a memorial, via Zoom, in the coming weeks for family and friends.

  12. I used to spend nearly every weekend at the in-law suit of Tom and Debbie’s place for a large part of the 80s, imposing myself on Margaret’s hospitality while visiting Don and playing our music loud. The Drepaul kids one by one would often be down with us. The last one to appear was who Don called ‘Fuzzy’.
    Margaret was very hospitable and tolerant and was very much the ‘cool’ mom. We’ll all miss her.
