CARTER, Margaret Wilmot (nee Swaisland)

Peacefully at home in Toronto on May 22, 2005 in her 97th year. Predeceased by her husband, Tullis Ninion; her sister, Helen Louise Leggat of Vancouver B.C.; her brother, John Wilmot Swaisland of Kelowna, B.C. and her granddaughter, Margaret Diana Cooper. Loving mother of William Swaisland (Ursula Style) of Waterloo, Ontario; Julia Anne of Toronto, Ontario and Patricia Jane (Peter Cooper) of Denver, Colorado. Fondly remembered by her seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Born in Edmonton, Margaret lived in Vancouver and Windsor before moving to Toronto with Tullis in 1934. She was an active member of the Garden Club of Toronto, the Southern Ontario Unit of the Herb Society of America and Rosedale Golf Club. Mother enjoyed playing tennis, golf, and bridge and spending many hours in her garden at home and at the cottage. In 1989, Mother founded The Cloverleaf Foundation and enjoyed working with her family on charitable projects. She will always be remembered for the twinkle in her eye and the warm, beautiful smile that was with her to the very end. The family would like to thank Dr. Jocelyn Charles at Sunnybrook Family Practice for the warmth of her care and the generosity in her visits to our mother and to Liz Strauch, Nena, Emilia, Gloria and their colleagues at Care 2000, as well as Lorena Lutz for their loving care which made it possible for our mother to live in her own home with humour, comfort, grace and dignity. A celebration of Margaret�s life will be held at LAWRENCE PARK COMMUNITY CHURCH, 2180 Bayview Avenue, Toronto on Wednesday, June 1st at 4 o�clock. Donations may be made to The Cloverleaf Foundation, 56 Regina Street North, Waterloo ON N2J 3A3.
