Margaret (Margie) LaVaughn Taylor

December 16, 1931 – September 29, 2023


Margie spent most of her life in the Bridgetown area. She met her future husband, Eddie Taylor, while still in high school and they married September 12, 1949.

She is survived by her three children, Donald (Anne) Taylor, Judy Spicer, and Stella (Brian) Dykens; grandchildren, Theresa (Donald) Retfalvi, Tina (Matt) Halliday, Lena Masters, Gena (John) Sheffield, Donald (Teresa) Taylor Jr, Rex (Kyla) Taylor. She is also survived by several great grandchildren and several great great grandchildren.

Margie was predeceased by Eddie, her husband of 62 years; parents, Lola Keddy and Truman Durling; step father, Gordon Keddy; brothers, Ernest and Frank; son-in-law, Robert Spicer; granddaughter, Angela Spicer. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

Mum lived the last 9 years in Greenwich with her daughter, Judy.  She worked in a local greenhouse and enjoyed her own small greenhouse where she grew vegetables for her family. She also graded apples in a warehouse, and, worked at Britex for 21 years until it closed. She and Dad started their own contracting business until they retired in the late nineties.

Mum enjoyed her Sudoku’s, scratchies, cryptograms, puzzles, reading and playing cards. She also had favorite TV shows she liked to watch. She was a member of the Bridgetown Baptist Church for many years. She played darts and volunteered at the Bridgetown Legion, looking after the young children and using the industrial dishwasher. But, most of all, she said she was blessed to have her children, so many grandchildren, great and great great grandchildren. She loved being called the “heart” of the family.

We want to thank the doctors and staff at Valley Regional Hospital who cared for Mum with such compassion.

At Mums request, there will be a private family graveside service held at Riverside Cemetery, Bridgetown.

Donations in Mums memory can be made to the Bridgetown Baptist Church, Canadian Cancer Society or charity of choice.
