Death Notice

Peacefully at Marshall Gowland Manor, Margaret Sheila (Houle) Smith passed away at the age of 89. Loving wife of the late Donald M. Smith (2007). Cherished mother of Walter Joseph Dynes (Marcia), Sharron Diana Holmes (Clair), Susan Ann Scott (David), and Beverly Lynn Miller (Bradley). Wonderful caring Nanny to B.C. Holmes, Michele Sherwood and family, Patti Rouse and family, Sheri Donkers and family, Matthew Miller, and Stephanie Miller. Dear sister of Patricia Hillman and sister-in-law of Gerald Smith. Cremation has taken place. We will honour our Mom’s wishes with a private service for her, Dad and Ming. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to the Sarnia & District Humane Society (cheques only at the funeral home please).


She left us in the early morning
When softly came the dawn
And since she never said goodbye
It’s hard to think she is gone.
She left us weeping with aching hearts
But we all know she is at Peace
With tender Angel wings hugging her for us
For all of us she gave her best
And now dear Mom it’s time to rest,
Remember, nothing remains the same…

    Dear Sharron
    So sorry your mom died. I'm glad it was peaceful and that she is with your Dad. Your mom was very generous. I'll never forget going to the cottage in Tobermory with Betty Darby and Lorraine Lunn every summer. We had so much fun. She was a great lady and will be missed
