MARGARET MARION HOLLIDAY

March 31, 1925 – September 23, 2021

Peacefully, Margaret was called home by her Lord and Saviour Jesus, at the age of 96 years. She is lovingly remembered by her children; Jane Holliday, Alex (Barbara) Holliday, Jenny (Ab) Chudley, Judie (Kevin) Holliday; her daughter-in-law Laurie (Todd) Moxham; grandchildren, Alyssa (Chad) Faragher and Jamie Holliday and many more grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, as well as nieces and nephews.

Margaret was predeceased by her husband Brian Frederick Douglas, her son Brian, her sister Jean Colburn, her nephew Don and her great-grandson Justin. Margaret was born in Hamilton, Ontario, the daughter of Alex and Nessie Ramsay.

Margaret met Brian just prior to his deployment to Burma during WWII. Two weeks after Brian’s return, they were married in Hamilton on July 22, 1944. For over 70 years Mum supported Brian and family as they moved from Burlington, ON to Winnipeg, MB to Fort Frances, ON, to Calgary, AB and to Kelowna, BC. Margaret spent her last few years in Winnipeg. Margaret had a lifelong interest in music and singing, and directed the choir at St. Christopher’s Anglican Church in Burlington for many years.

She loved, listened to, encouraged and prayed for family and friends and delighted in hearing about the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A celebration of Margaret’s life will take place with family and friends at St. Andrew’s-on-the-Red Anglican Church at a later date; the Rev. Merv Lanctot officiating.

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. (2 Tim 4:7).
