Obituary of Margaret Reilly

With profound sadness and much love, we announce the passing of Margaret Reilly (nee McDonald) in her 100th year on May 28, 2023.


Beloved daughter of the late Ella and James, sister of the late Alex, partner to Alf Tizzard  and the late “Pat” Reilly, devoted mother to Pat (Paul) and Wendy (Ken), loving Grandma to Ryan (Natalie), Tim (Katie), Chris and Jenn (Mike), adoring “Great” to Kingston, Camden, Paisley, Evan and Rylee and dear cousin to Jean. She will also be dearly missed by Alf’s family and so many friends at Woodland Beach, Humber Bay- her birthplace, the Elden and in Bradford.


The family would like to thank Patty, her dedicated nurse, her doctors Dr Leung, Dr. Wong and Dr. Brown and the staff at Matthews House who all provided such care and compassion to Margaret.


We know that “Great” has joined the long line of family and friends who are waiting for her to join them in a rousing game of Rummikub and Euchre.


There will be no funeral, as per Margaret’s wishes. 


In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations in Margaret’s memory can be made to Matthews House, Alliston, Ontario.
