It is with profound sadness that the family announces the passing of Margaret E. Parsons on Monday, August 3,2020, in her 90th year at the Palliative Care Unit of PRHC. A life full of love, a passion for friends and family and a dedication to working with and helping others. Marg graduated from the school of nursing at Toronto General Hospital, working in labour and delivery and mental health fields. She believed strongly in giving back to her community, volunteering as a Sunday School teacher at St. Andrews United Church, working with Meals on Wheels, answering the crisis phone line at Telecare, and assisting at the CNIB. Marg called North Bay home but lived at The Regency in Lakefield for the past four years. We will miss receiving a new pair of knitted mittens each Christmas. Thanks mom/Marg for always caring, laughing, listening, loving and sharing. Predeceased by her husband Don Parsons. Mother to Tom (Heather) and Ann. Loving nana to Adam (Michelle), Daanis (Troy), Brad (Zoe) and Luke. Great-grandmother to Max, Nora and great-granddaughter on the way. A sincere thank you to the staff at The Regency and the Palliative Care team at PRHC. You are wonderful people. If desired, donations may be made to The Alzheimer's Society or Heart and Stroke Foundation. Or in her memory, think about doing a good deed for another, or helping someone in need. A small graveside service will be held at a later date in North Bay. Arrangements entrusted to THE HENDREN FUNERAL HOMES, LAKEFIELD CHAPEL, or 705-652-3355.

Dear Tom and family: My sincere sympathy for the passing of Margaret. I only recently got to know Margaret through her love of knitting. She was a lovely person. May your memories of her stay with you forever. Susan Twist (Happenstance Books & Yarns)

Marg was my cousin. She was a wonderfully loving, kind lady, who did much good work throughout her life. It was good to keep in touch with her. She will be missed.

Marg was such a kind, generous and caring person. We visited her for several fittings for the two knitted coats she made for our pup Jackson last summer. She spoke positively about knitting gifts for charity, book clubs and her family, and we would always leave saying how much we liked her. She really will be missed. We send love to all of Marg's family.

Marg was a great cousin, always ready to help others. Although we did see each other we did keep in touch by phone and had some great chats. Thoughts go out to all the family, but do consider it a Celebration, that’s what Marg would want. Patricia (Rainey) Wadman

Tom and Heather, so sorry to hear about Marg’s passing. A very sad time for all of you. It’s wonderful that she and Tom’s Dad were able to live close to you during the last few years. Thinking of you both.
