CROUSE, Margaret

On January 5th 2020, Eldon lost the love of his life and best friend of nearly 57 years. Margaret Crouse, age 76, passed away peacefully after a long and difficult battle with many health issues. She is predeceased by her daughter Karen, brother Bill, sister Donna, and brother-in-law Ron. Margaret loved to keep busy. She was always working away at some craft project, whether it be mending clothing for someone, cross stitching Christmas stockings, or knitting hats and mittens. She had many talents that she loved to share with others. One of her favourite hobbies was keeping her husband in line. Margaret is survived by her husband Eldon and daughter Deborah. She was the proud grandmother to Erin (Matt) and Dominique (Liam). She was also blessed to have the love and support of her remaining siblings Bert, Nancy (Bruce), Betty (Gary), Graham, David (Debbie), and sisters-in-law Barb, and Marie. She will also be missed by her many nieces and nephews. We would like to give a special thank you to Mary and Brad, who were part of Margaret’s medical team. Their friendship and support meant a lot to her. We would also like to thank the 6th floor nursing staff at Belleville General Hospital for their kindness and compassion and excellent care during her last days. A celebration of life will be held for all of her family and friends in the spring at a date to be determined.
