It is with heavy hearts that our family shares news of the sudden passing of Marg North (Fazackerley nee Maloney) at the age of 92, on Thursday Sept 19/19 at Southlake Regional Health Centre, Newmarket. Mom suffered a sudden health incident during a recent brief battle with cancer.

She is sadly missed by her loving husband of 12 years Al North and his four children, and by her three children and their families.

She was the eldest born to William and Margaret Maloney (deceased) in Toronto along with brother Lawrence Maloney (Ruth), predeceased sisters Maureen (Gord) Chown and Katy (Gerry) White. Also predeceased by her first husband James Fazackerley after 53 years of marriage. Marg was a loving mother to Jim (Marcia), Brian (Shelley), and Carol Richard (Roy), and Gramma to Shailau (Brian Spivak), Sean (Ashley), Jen (Ivan Kerr), Melissa (John Haddon), Lindsay (Darren Sawyer), Nicole (Morgan Ross), Kyle (Celina Stillman), and Sarah. Mom adored her 14 great grandchildren and will be missed by many other extended family members.

Mom made a hobby ‘career’ of ceramics, porcelain doll making, stitching and quilting. Many were recipients of her impeccable creative quilted works, especially her grandkids.

Mom valued spending time with her loved ones for family celebrations. She was a very private beautiful woman who adored children, loved music and dancing and the company of her pet dogs throughout her life.

Her inspiring courage and determination helped her survive many health challenges over the past decade, in which she truly appreciated the support of her husband and family.

Mom expressly requested that there be no funeral service. Cremation has taken place. She and Al enjoyed attending St James Anglican Church in Sharon, where a memorial service will be held at a future date.

We will all miss her humour, commitment to life and fun, her no nonsense manner and her smiling Irish eyes. RIP Mom. You are forever in our hearts.

Mom’s wish was for a joyous celebration of life, which will be held at Thompson Funeral Home, 530 Industrial Parkway South, Aurora, from 1 pm to 5 pm on Thanksgiving Sunday, October 13, 2019.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Margaret's memory may be made to Stronach Cancer Centre, www.southlakefoundation.ca

Aunt Marg very special lady in my life. Memories of trips from Kingston to all the family parties with her and Uncle Jim on Knotty Pine Trail make me smile. Al and her joined my daughter Meaghans skating recitals for many years taking over my moms role as Grandma after she passed. She taught me so many things that gave me a passion for crafts, painting and knitting, I’m still trying things! She was more then an Aunt.... she was my Aunt Marg, my Godmother and my role model . Love Lynn, Ryan and Meaghan ❤️❤️❤️
