March 30, 1936 – June 5, 2021
It’s with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Margaret Wyton (nee Gilbert) age 85 at her home in Brampton on Saturday, June 5th, 2021. Her heart finally gave out. It was never the same after her husband Kenny of over 63 years passed. She was lonely for him, but not for the lack of love from family and friends. She and Kenny travelled around the world throughout the years and befriended folks and animals everywhere they went.
She was rich in family and is survived by her children Cindy and Darrell, surrogate mother to Cheryl. Grandmother to Stefanie (Chris), Jason (Diana) and Holly, Sydney and Shane. Great grandmother to Dylan, Emily, Douglas and Easton. And also literally hundreds of nieces and nephews and cousins. Also survived by brothers John and David. Predeceased by children Terri Ann and Douglas, and by siblings Doris Flint, Rose Sturgess, Edward Gilbert, Georgina Cartlidge, and Kathleen Louden.
Maggie was a force all her own and she empowered all who knew her. She touched all of their lives and gave them the confidence to be themselves and to flourish.

Joan Shortt & I were on a bus trip to Pennsylvania & Maggie & Kenny were on the same trip. We met them when we had a lunch break we introduced ourselves & mentioned we lived in Bramalea, & were members of St. Joseph Anglican Church, they started coming to our church. Loved hearing their stories of their travels. My sincere condolences to Maggie’s family.

Maggie was a much loved member of St. Joseph of Nazareth Anglican Church in Bramalea. She and Kenny attended the 8:30 a.m. service and both were a delight to know. Maggie especially was a whirlwind and an excellent knitter which she shared with the prayer shawl ministry and the bazaar. Rest in peace, Maggie.

Aunty Marg was my great aunt. I have lots of memories of visiting her and uncle Kenny (aka my boyfriend ) from a very young age. She use to remind me she would look after me when I didn’t speak English and I would run around the coffee table gibbering something in Greek. We had a connection I loved her and uncle Kenny so much. I will miss our talks and giving her hugs. I know she is back with uncle Kenny with a smile that wonderful smile she always had. Live you Aunty Marg xoxo

I remember when I was younger and the parties (New Year's) and the family time we spent together. We always had a great time! You will be greatly missed Aunt Marg.

This Special Lady came into my life in 1974. Throughout the years, she has been more than a sister to me. Certainly, she will be greatly missed.

Aunt Marg and I became much closer over the past several years, and the past year she was like a second mom to me, helping me through a very difficult year. Her sense of humour and positivity knew no bounds, she lived life and every single day to the fullest. She was such an inspiration and source of strength and love. I wish so much I could have hugged her just one more time.

You definitely were a great force for such a little women. You had acquired great knowledge in all areas of life. You always included your travel wise experiences with everyone who knew you. You will be greatly missed, but your written journals which you shared with us, remain. God bless you and keep smiling. Shine upon us in Heaven!

When I took a trip home to Canada 🍁, I always stayed with Aunt Marg and Uncle Ken, we would take day trips to great places and always had a wonderful time together. I will miss them both very much, but especially all the great talks I had with Aunt Marg. She always gave me the news on the family. They will always be in my heart ♥️

Aunty Marg, although not our biological aunt was a true aunt to myself and my siblings. I still have those special memories of her and Uncle Ken taking us to the Toronto beaches. She also made the best yorkshire pudding and taught me how to make it. Aunty Marg is one of the strongest women I know. Aunty, you will be truly missed.
