Eliza May (Maisie) Inglis
Feb 12, 1928 – Feb 21, 2021
Just after her 93rd birthday, Maisie passed peacefully from this world. She can now join her late husband Bob. She leaves behind her two sons, Robert (Cecilia) and John (Paige) and three grandchildren: McKinley, Robbie and Isla.
Maisie was born in Hull, Yorkshire and persevered through World War II bombing raids and relocation to the countryside. She joined her sister, Joyce, in coming to Canada, briefly living in Montreal but settling in Toronto. There they attended dance clubs designed for English ex-patriots and there she met her future husband. Although they met and married later in life, Bob and Maisie still enjoyed forty-six years together. During that time, almost every weekend was spent at the “country place” in Mulmer Township near Shelburne. Together they tilled the earth, restored antique pine furniture and enjoyed the bucolic peacefulness in the valley off the Prince of Wales Road. Even later in life after giving up her driver’s license, Maisie would speak of her recent trips to the place. Her memories seemed to be drawn there and certainly her spirit will visit the property and join Bob to care for the flowers, tend to the vegetable garden and sit on the front porch with a cold beer to watch the wind ripple gently across John Goldie’s pond. Cheers to a life full of laughter, travel, bridge games and caring for things that grow.
