Ross, Margaret Emma (Macfarlane)
1922 – 2022

Born in the Peterborough area and lived 99 eventful years, 60 of them with beloved husband Donald Cameron Ross (2006) in Leamington. Survived by three much loved children: Donald Macfarlane Ross (Marlene), Susan Jane Ross and Judith Evelyn Meixner (Herman). She had three Grandchildren, Scott (Saidah), Paul (Lisa), Jessica (JP) and a dear great granddaughter, Clio.

Marg, like husband Don, was a graduate of University of Guelph (1944) and followed her passion for nature and gardening throughout her life. Winter hobbies included weaving, sewing and knitting.

She taught at Kingsville District High School for 19 happy years and at first was the only woman Agriculture teacher in Canada. Volunteering was a large part of her life – Hospital, Church, Art Gallery, Point Pelee and Horticulture were among the activities that led to Marg being recognized as Citizen of the Year for 2010.

Don and Marg enjoyed cottaging, travelling and sailing for many years. Marg’s loving generosity influenced everyone she touched.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Memorial donations may be made by cheque to Southwest Ontario Gleaners by contacting Reid Funeral Home, 14 Russell Street, Leamington (519-326-2631).

    Mrs. Ross was a lovely person. I remember her kind and thoughtful nature when she taught me at KDHS in late 60’s.
