Fondly know as Meg, passed peacefully at home August 24,2022, surrounded by loving family in her 95th year. Pre-deceased by the father of her children, Robert Read, and her adored younger brother John Saxton ( Marie). Her love was cherished by her four children; Dave (Tracey), Sue (Mike) , Ann and Paul (Christine), and her grandchildren Merrick, Jake, Ceilie, and Emma, as well as nephews Bill, and Doug (deceased)
She was born at the farm, RR 1 Port Burwell. Growing up at the farm Meg discovered her love for all things living, both wild and domestic. She would explore forest and field with Sandy at her side, the proverbial girl and her dog.
After McMaster University , she taught at a one room schoolhouse in Port Burwell, then returned to guiding children through her home based daycare after raising her own kids. Through intricate cross-stitch, and creative gardens, Meg loved to create beauty, and it brought her proud fulfillment.
Her quick wit and and acrid observations of humanity, tempered always with affection, endeared to all who knew her. Meg will be remembered as a cracker smart and wise soul that loved her family fiercely. We know you’re up there watching mom, so “Let’s Go Blue Jays”
