DIAS, Marjorie “Midge” Eileen (nee Grass) (February 15, 1947 – April 19, 2024)

The family of Midge Dias wish to announce her peaceful passing on Friday, April 19th, 2024, at AgeCare Aylmer Long Term Care at the age of 77.  Midge was a former resident of Delhi who spent her free time in her flower beds, in her father’s garden and strawberry patch and endless hours making her family jam and many jars of tomato juice.  Midge is lovingly remembered by her mother Olive (Morse) Grass, of Aylmer, and by her children Bob Lauwerier, of Delhi and Lynn Agro (Charlie) and grandson Wesley, of Tillsonburg. Also survived by her sister Gloria Sheppard (late Bob), of Aylmer, as well as by aunts, uncles, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by her father Charles “Chuck” Grass (2011) and by her brother Jim Grass (2020).

Special thanks to the staff at AgeCare Aylmer for the wonderful care that has been provided over the years.
