ROBINSON; Margaret Lily
January 12, 1916 – April 15, 2016
Margaret passed away peacefully at the age of 100 in the Ladner Hospice on April 15, 2016. Our Mom lived her life with grace, compassion and love. She was a humble and gentle soul who showed kindness to everyone. She was an honorary life-time member of the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary. One of her fondest memories was helping her friend, Vera Middleton establish and operate the first hospital Gift Shop.
Mom’s love and devotion to her family and pride in her grandchildren was beyond measure. She kept current with the Canucks and the P.G.A. through the years in order to take part in discussions with her grandchildren. Missing and loving her always: her four children: Ian (Cindy), Jean (Howard), Kathy (Reg), Ken (Lisa), eight grandchildren: Colin (Tamaki), Kevin (Tami), Trevor (Nicole), Dan, Jana (Eric), Haley (Brett), Layne, Will, four great-grandchildren: Allen, Ronan, Chloe, Loïc, sisters: Lilian (Walt) and Ina, five nieces and nephews and families: Elaine, Jim, Renee, Ken and David. A heartfelt thank you to the 3rd floor staff of Yale Road Centre and the Ladner Hospice for the care and compassion shown to Margaret and her family in the final week of her life. Thank you to Gordon of Sunnyside United Church for his caring and compassion.
Margaret’s faith kept her strong and focused. She lived and died with courage, grace and love.
