Passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loved ones, at Greater Niagara Hospital on Sunday, June 19, 2016, at the age of 86 years. Predeceased by her first husband, Peter Nelson, she is survived by her husband of 56 years, Richard Laude and her children: Tamara, Jeanette (David,) Richard Jnr. (Carolyn,) Lorraine (Vito) and John-Paul (deceased.) Adored Oma to Zakary (deceased,) Leif, Tess, Jessica, Jakob, Marah and Melissa. Great grandmother to Atlas and Mitenah. Also survived by her sister Doris (Hans-Hermann) and her nephews, Thomas and Andreas of Fulda, Germany.
Margot was always interested, thoughtful, kind and meticulously just. She was an adventurous partner to her husband, Richard, building five houses together in Wawa and Michipicoten Mission. Later, in retirement, on St. Joseph Island, Richard and Margot enjoyed community life, grandchildren and the Island’s natural beauty.
Margot read newspapers, books and Macleans magazine regularly. Though she suffered personal tragedies in life, her spirit was not dampened, her deep faith carried her through. We, her family, are eternally grateful for her devotion and kindness. She leaves an enormous gap.
Interment will be held later this summer at Woodland Cemetery in Wawa.
“For what you gave, during your life,
for this, every gratitude will be too small.
Thou has carest for your beloved ones,
from early to late, from day to day.
Thou hast been so modest,
duty and work, only, is what you have known.
With everything, we were content, ever.
Now, you mayest sleep in everlasting peace…
