Gillies, Margaret Patricia
February 16, 1917 - October 30, 2012

Our mother passed away quietly with dignity surrounded by her family. She was predeceased by her husband, Norman Gillies, geologist. She was a beautiful woman, a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She leaves her daughters Karen Gillies and Patsy Fyfe as well as her grandsons Andrew and Douglas Fyfe and her great grandchildren Lilly, Robyn and Maggie and their mothers Tessa and Alice Fyfe. She leaves also a multitude of friends and admirers who will remember her for many talents and kindnesses. She was a gifted artist, avid gardener, master duplicate bridge player and breeder of top quality Aberdeen Angus cattle. All of these things occurred around and about her beloved farm ''The Retreat'' in Arnprior. We wish to thank the staff at Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital and also the wonderful people at Island View Suites who cared for her. We especially want to thank Anita Schubrink who was our mother's constant companion and caregiver. You made our mother's last years a time to treasure for all of us. We also want to thank her special friends Scott Anglin, Aileen Emard and Linda Parsons. Arrangements by The Boyce Funeral Home Chapel, Visitation and Reception Centre 138 Daniel Street N.
