SCHMITTER, Margaret – After 100 years of a life well lived, Marg (fondly known as Ruthie) gently passed on January 14, 2019. She will be especially missed by her sister Mary, her children David (Linda), Peggy (Bill) and Rob (Peggy); by her grandchildren Daniel (Jessica), Heather (Chris), Sandi (Will), Kevin (Jillian) and Sarah; and her great grandchildren Noah, Madeline, Hannah, Liesel, Lyle and Annie. She was so proud of them all. Marg was predeceased by the love of her life Tony (1989), her parents Amy and Joe Bulman and seven siblings,
(Evelyn, Bill, Maurice, George, Albert, Ronald and Ruby). Born April 21, 1918 in Clifton England, Marg moved to Canada in 1924 with her family who settled in Brighton Ontario as dairy farmers. Married in 1946, Marg started her career as the well-travelled military
wife. She performed well her official roles in support of Tony’s long military career in the RCAF. Her greatest accomplishments were those of a wife, mother and homemaker, who always relished the news of the next posting and a chance to redecorate a new PMQ. Marg was a true “lady” in every sense of the word. She was patient, calm, dignified and never raised her voice. She will be fondly remembered as a talented seamstress, good cook, avid gardener, addicted bridge player, organ player, book reader and sudoku lover. Marg was also a huge “armchair athlete” who spent many hours watching the original Big 6 NHL games, countless curling games, many world series and of course Tiger Woods. As well, Marg and Tony spent many happy years boating and camping all over North America and wintering in Cape Canaveral
Florida. A Private Graveside service will be held in the spring at Little Lake Cemetery in Peterborough Ontario. In Lieu of flowers or donations, hold your mothers tight and raise a glass in memory of Marg tonight.
