MARGETTS: Mrs. Margaret “Margie” (nee Dingman), of Dutton, formerly of St. Thomas
MARGETTS, Mrs. Margaret “Margie” (nee Dingman), of the Bobier Villa, Dutton, formerly of St. Thomas, passed away unexpectedly at LHSC, University Hospital on Friday, March 1, 2013, in her 87th year. Wife of the late George H. Margetts (1996). Mother of Jeffrey Margetts (Patricia), and Susan Margetts, all of St. Thomas. Grandmother of Andrew Margetts (Jessica Lawson), Jon Margetts, and Julia Margetts (Corey Southern). Also survived by several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by a sister, Nancy Dingman, and by a brother, George G. Dingman. Born in Middlesex County, ON, April 4, 1926, she was the daughter of the late George M. and Helen (nee Griffin) Dingman. Margie grew up in Springwater and later moved to St. Thomas. She was a graduate of Alma College where she was a member of the swim and diving team. She excelled in language, music, arts and business typing, and went on to work at Canadian Timken, St. Thomas. She soon after met her husband George. Margie had many gifts; a lending ear, a compassionate heart, a wonderful sense of humour and a quick wit. She enjoyed history, working in her gardens and baking, and the very fortunate were given her pecan pie. Her humour and interjecting with French brought a smile to many. Spring was her favourite time of year. She will be missed and her presence is irreplaceable. In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no public visitation or funeral service. Interment of her cremated remains will be made in Elmdale Memorial Park at a later date. Memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario gratefully acknowledged. Arrangements entrusted to the Sifton Funeral Home, 118 Wellington St., St. Thomas (519-631-1160).
