Margaret Trevitt

Our visit to the bird sanctuary with my mother last year

I am very sad to say that my mom passed away last month, on March 22nd. She had been in the hospital for several months with complications after a scheduled heart surgery; after a long, hard battle she made it home for a few days but couldn't overcome a Clostridium Difficile (C. diff) infection. Deborah and I were not able to make it to London in time to be with her, but the rest of the family was there and they said it was very peaceful. We did make the visitation and funeral services, which were well attended and very nice; my mom was very well known in the community and had many friends.

The full obituary is online here: Included is a very appropriate poem:
God looked around his garden and found an empty place
He looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
God's garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best
Also very appropriate, my mom had asked that the song "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" be sung at the funeral. If you knew my mother at all you will get a good chuckle out of hearing the song - which I think is exactly what she wanted.


  1. My condolences, Andrew. I hope things work out for you

  2. Your Mom was a great Lady, she'll be missed by many people.
