Marguerite "Marg" Whitaker

Surrounded by the loving embrace of her family, Marguerite "Marg" Whitaker peacefully passed away on Monday, October 30, 2023, at the age of 87. She is now reunited with her beloved husband, Lionel. Marg was a devoted mother to her sons, Kevin and wife Marie, Chris and his wife Vicki, and Jeff and his wife Melissa.

A sad day indeed for all of Marg’s amazing family. We have fond memories of meeting them many years ago in Toronto after we arrived from Ireland, especially Lionel and Marg and their dog. She will be missed, but her legacy will live on through her wonderful sons, and their families. Long may she enjoy being reunited with Lionel.

Dear Kevin, Chris, Jeff and Family,
I was heartbroken to learn that Marg had passed away. She was such a lovely, charming and warm woman. She was so well-liked in our building for her vibrant personality. She was a cherished participant in our monthly coffee hour and kept us entertained with stories of her youth. I specifically recall her belting out a song from her school….we were in awe of the fact that she remembered all of the lyrics. Marg often reminisced with me about her cherished husband, Lionel , and spoke so highly of your beautiful , close-knit family. Her wonderful sons were the source of tremendous pride and I so admired how devoted her family was to her. Of course, who would not love Marg.? May her memory be as a blessing for all of you. Sincerely ,
Carla and Harold Fink
