Margaret Gladys Binning Parsons Millar

September 22, 1930 - December 26, 2017

At Northumberland Hills Hospital on December 26th, 2017 in her 88th year. Loving wife to Bruce (deceased in 2002), mom of Rosemary and Peter, spouses Denis and Kathryn; and proud, loving Grandmother to Harland (Sarah), Devon (Courtney), Marshall (Zoé), Mary Alicia (Jakub), Margaret (Mark) and Helen (Josh); and Great Grandmother to Hudson.

Margie was passionate about life and her spirit was contagious. She was a very active volunteer all her life – starting with the Canadian Red Cross in Montreal, to recent years as a volunteer driver for Cobourg Community Care, long time volunteer with Rebound Child and Youth Services and on many Committees at the home she loved so much, Palisade Gardens, where she arranged flowers, gardened and was active on the Residents’ Board.

Many thanks to all the staff and Margie’s many friends at Palisade’s – you all had a very special place in her heart.

Special thanks to Margie’s caregivers at Northumberland Hills – Lisa, Randa, Penny, Sara and Kara.

Many thanks, as well, to Reverend Andrew Truter and Dr. Ian Paddock.

A Remembrance gathering will be held in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Rebound Child and Youth Services or the charity of your choice.  Condolences received at
