It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Margaret (Peggy) McCarron (nee Haslam) on Sunday May 2, 2021 at the age of 98. Peggy was the loving and devoted wife of her husband Tom for 52 years and the beloved mother of Pamela (Kevin). She will be forever loved by her cherished grandchildren Megan (Scott), Matt (Tamara) Elliot, Erin (Steve), Brian, Patrick Murphy and Great-Nana to Ciara Downey. Friend and sister-in-law to Alison, Olive, Daphne and predeceased by her brothers William and John, brothers-in-law Robert, William and Marcus and sister-in-laws Jean, Annie and Mary and nephew Frank. Peggy is also survived by many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews. She was the matriarch of our family and lovingly referred to as the Queen.
Peggy was born and raised in Northern Ireland and immigrated to Canada in 1954, settling in Toronto where she married Tom. She worked at Simpsons as a buyer for the children’s wear department, until they started their adventure moving around Ontario for Tom’s work, and at each new house Peggy went to work making a warm and loving home for her family. They finally settled in Milton where Peggy was blessed with many great friends who she enjoyed meeting for coffee and a catch up. She was an active member of the Milton Hospital Auxillary where she was a buyer for the gift shop for many years.
Peggy was a beautiful soul, kind, generous and a selfless and giving person. Everyone who met Peggy loved her positive outlook and excellent sense of humour. Peggy especially enjoyed wintering in Fort Myers where she loved line dancing, bowling, golfing, darts, bocce and a wonderful circle of great friends.
For those who wish, donations may be made to the Milton District Hospital Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society.
Due to the current circumstances a friends and family gathering will be held at a later date. Messages of condolence may be left online at www.earlyfuneralhome.com
