Storie, Margaret Elizabeth (Nee MacRae)

In loving memory of Margaret Elizabeth Storie (MacRae) who passed away peacefully at Extendicare York on November 3, 2015 at the age of 72. Beloved daughter of Kenneth and Vada MacRae (Nesbitt). Cherished and much loved wife of the late John Francis Storie (2003). Loving mother of Jonathan Alexander (Andrea) of South Carolina and Jason Andrew (Caroline) of British Columbia. Beloved grandmother of Matthew, Phillip, Jack and Poppy who were the apple of her eye. Survived by brother and sister in law Robert and Elizabeth Storie who were devoted caregivers in her final years. Her greatest joy was her family and she was so proud of them and their achievements. She will be fondly remembered by many dear friends in Sudbury, Elliot Lake and beyond. Margaret graduated as registered nurse, from the Ottawa Civic Hospital fifty years ago. She worked in many areas in nursing over her career, retiring as a teacher’s assistant from the North Shore District School Board. Margaret was a member of the New Life Pentecostal Assembly in Elliot Lake. She was extremely courageous in facing her illness and challenges and was certain in her destination with her Lord. She enjoyed shopping, decorating, knitting, reading and above all spending time with her family and friends. All who knew her can attest to her having most of her Christmas shopping done by July and always finding the perfect gifts for her loved ones. A sincere thank you to Dr. Gagnon, Dr. Hayes, Dr. Michaud and Jen Stillar, for their excellent care and support. Thank you as well to the staff of the Congestive Heart Failure Clinic at SRH and to the staff at Extendicare York for their care and compassion in her last few weeks of her life. As per Margaret’s wishes, a graveside service will be held on Thursday, November 12 at 1:00 P.M in the Woodlands Cemetery in Elliot Lake. In lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.

6 Condolences

  1. Dear Jonathan, Jason and families, Robert and Elizabeth:
    Please accept my sympathies in the passing of your mother, and family member. She was always a wonderful and loving person. Although I’ve been away for many years, I always was kept up to date on how she was doing. My mom, of course, was especially fond of her niece. If I may, let me add a particular memory of Margie which has never left me. As you can imagine visiting with the Walkers meant visiting with the many Walker boys, a different experience than the daily life of an only daughter. Unfortunately for her when Huricane Hazel (1954) arrived and we were visiting her family and it was decided that we had to stay the night. I was chosen to sleep with Margi which I don’t think it ever occurred to her that she might have to share a bed with a 6 year old boy….it was never the same again.
    I hope you all have wonderful memories .

    Although we were aware that Margie’s health had worsened, we were saddened to learn of her death. When Margie and I were young, we both lived at Grandpa and Grannie Nesbitt’s house in Coniston and created some havoc. I still have a picture of the two of us enjoying life.
    When we moved back to Sudbury in the late 60s, we thought nothing of driving to North Bay with Margie and Jack for Chinese food.
    Over the years, whenever we talked, her love of her family shone through and she really enjoyed visits with all of you.
    We truly believe she is in a better place, reunited with Jack and Uncle Ken and Aunt Vada.
    Our condolences to all of you.
    Love,
    Brian and Sylvia

  5. Dear Jonathan, Andrea, Jason, Caroline, Matthew, Phillip, Jack, Poppy, and Robert and Elizabeth Storie… We are so sorry to hear of Margie’s passing, and so sorry you have lost a very loving Mom and Grandmother. I know you will miss her dearly. When we were children, although an only child, Margie was one of several cousins in an extended family clan and we were all pretty close. She always had lots of spunk and was full of fun and we had good times together. We saw a lot of Margie because Grannie Nesbitt lived with Ken and Vada, and we vistied their home at 374 York frequently. Those times with Grannie, Ken and Vada, and Margie are full of fond memories. It is sad for you, and for us all, that Margie’s time with us has come to a close. I hope you might be comforted by the vision of a great heavenly reunion of Margie, Jack, Ken and Vada, and all the family who have gone before her. We would love to have a visit with you by phone if you would like. God’s Comfort, now and in the days ahead. John & Jane Nesbitt

  6. It was sad to receive the notice of Margaret’s passing. She, her husband and I were great friends that somehow lost touch due to work and family movement. Please accept my sincere condolences.
