Margaret (Booth) Mitchell
With heavy hearts, the family of Margaret Mitchell share the tragic news of her death as a result of a car crash on Thurs., Sept. 7, 2017. Margaret Mitchell, age 67, of Lake Placid, Fla. (previously of the South Mountain area) was known for her kindness and compassionate care in bringing new life into this world as a highly skilled labour and delivery Registered Nurse and lactation consultant at Highlands Regional Medical Centre in Florida.
However, Margaret’s biggest pride and joy were her children and grandchildren. She was the most wonderful and loving Mom and Nana of DeeDee (Steven) Bekkers and their children, Rachel, Amy, Dayna, and Myah; Dodi Booth and her, son; Hazel Booth (Chris Locke) and their children, Landon and Stevie; the late Holly Booth (Ryan Dillabough); Grant Booth (Elise Pendlebury) and their daughter, Adelaide; and Megan Booth (Michel Raats) and their children, Jacob, Luke, and Bianca. She was the dear sister of Judith DeVries (Lee Blank), and Joyce Salisbury (Ray Burrell). She was the aunt of many nieces and nephews. She was the much-loved daughter-in-law of Hazel Booth. Margaret was the companion of Ron Estanbrook.
A friend to many, she never missed a birthday, anniversary, or holiday. We do not know what we will do without her in our lives.
The family will receive family and friends at the Mountain Township Agricultural Hall, 2967 Lough Rd. in South Mountain, today (Wed., Sept. 13) from 6 to 9 pm. A Celebration of Life for Margaret and her daughter, Holly, will be held at Kilmarnock Orchard, 1182 Kilmarnock Rd. in Jasper, on Thurs., Sept. 14 at 11 am followed by interment at Knights Cemetery in Inkerman at 4 pm. All are welcome.
Those who wish may make a donation in memory of Margaret to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Foundation.
The arrangements are entrusted to Byers Funeral home in South Mountain (613-989-3836). Online condolences may be made at www.byersfuneralhomeinc.com
