Obituary

“Say not in grief she is no more but live in the thankfulness that she was ours.”

Passed away on Friday October 21, 2016 Margaret Charles, aged 92 (although she’d be none too happy with us putting that in print). She is fondly remembered by her seven children:
Kimberly Roberts (Christopher); Lee Stones (Michael);
Glenn Charles (Marianna); Sherry DelRizzo (Joe);
Kerry Charles (Helen); Suzanne Walsh (Joe); and Debbie Blundon.
She will also be missed by her brother-in-law Cyril Ludlow, in addition to her grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Margaret was predeceased by her husband Robert (Bob) Charles; her parents Gertrude and Alex Mitchell; her sisters Joan Ludlow (Cyril) and Louise Reid (Clarence); and her brothers Donald and Clarence Mitchell (Sue).
As per our mother’s wishes, there will be no wake or formal church service. There will be a graveside service at the General Protestant Cemetery, Waterford Bridge Road on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 @ 2:00pm, for anyone who wishes to attend. In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations be made in her memory to a charity of one’s choice and if you can, raise a glass in her honour as we know she’d appreciate it.
Very special thanks go to the caring staff at the Pleasant View Towers Nursing Home, especially her nurses Donna, Connie and Susan and of course Tim who always made her day when he came in for a chat and her neighbour Madeline who became an instant friend. We would be amiss not to mention her nephew Rodger Ludlow and his wife Debbie (who had the prettiest eyes Mom would say) where mom lived since moving back to NL from NS in 2013 up to the time when she moved to Pleasant View Towers. She loved her little apartment in their home and how kind they always were.
We hope our parents are reunited now in their favourite fishing spot on the 5 Mile in Placentia, and that for Mom’s sake, she can catch up on Coronation Street on TV in heaven. One of Mom’s favourite things to say was “You’ll miss me when I’m gone”……and she was right.

“Life can be the same after the loss of a trinket but never after the loss of a treasure.”

Sorry to hear about Aunt Margaret’s death. To all our Charles cousins, you were fortunate to have had your mother in your lives for so long. On one of our last visits at the Pleasantview, she was her usual lovely funny self. I know our Mom enjoyed visiting with Aunt Margaret, Kim, Chris and the boys in NS., looking forward to seeing them every year. You miss your mother everyday, when you are left with only memories. Think of the good times and take care.

Kim and Family,

Sorry to hear of your loss. I goes without saying we are all here for you. Without knowing her, it is obvious she was a special woman for raising such a wonderful person. My thoughts are with all of you in this difficult time.

So sorry to hear of Mrs. Charles’ passing. I worked with her many years ago – she was a beautiful person!

I’m so sorry for your loss, working with Nan was the highlight of my day for the past few months. I loved her as my own and I am deeply saddened by her passing. She was definitely a one of a kind soul, a sweet woman and she will be greatly missed in our lives as well as yours.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
