July 28, 1925 – August 20, 2013

After a very fulfilling life, Madge died peacefully on Tuesday August 20, 2013 at St. Joseph’s Villa, Dundas, ON.  She was pre-deceased by her husband of over 61 years, Bruce, with whom they were blessed with four devoted children, Elaine, Ann, Jim and Cathy, grandchildren Graham, Jeremy, Ramsey, Jenny, Sarah, Tom, Rachael, Luke, Greg, and Kayla, and great – grandchildren Arwen, Cedar, Ember, Juliet, Esme, Finn, Ella, and Asher. Despite Madge’s painful physical challenges, she always maintained her great sense of humour, and love of life. Music and creativity kept the sparkle in her eye. Her family, of whom she was most proud, will miss this lovely lady. May she rest peacefully. A Memorial Service will take place at St. Mark’s United Church, 1 Lynndale Drive, Dundas, ON on Sunday, September 29th at 2 p.m. Thank you to the Balsam Trail staff at St. Joseph’s Villa, as well as to the staff of 6 West, Hamilton General Hospital, for all your loving care.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Mark’s United Church, Dundas ON,  Granton United Church, Granton,ON, or to the Canadian Wildlife Federation.
