In memory of

Marguerite Sherran Nelson

October 24, 1943 -  September 27, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Marguerite Sherran Nelson, who peacefully passed away surrounded by family on September 27th, 2023, at the age of 79. She was born on October 24th, 1943, and was the beloved wife of the late Larry Nelson and the mother of the late Cheryl Nelson.

Marguerite’s life was one filled with love, resilience, and unwavering strength. She was a devoted mother to her surviving son, Lawrence (Susan), and loving grandmother to Sandra (Joel) and Nicole. She also had the joy of being a great-grandmother to Leyah and Cali. Marguerite’s family was her greatest source of happiness, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

Throughout her life, Marguerite faced numerous health struggles with courage and determination. She battled adversity with a spirit that inspired those around her. Her journey was marked by challenges, but her enduring love for her family remained a constant source of strength and inspiration.

Marguerite’s passing is bittersweet for us, as we mourn the loss of a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. However, we take solace in knowing that she has now reunited with her husband, Larry, and daughter, Cheryl, in a world free from blindness, wheelchairs and discomfort. Marguerite is now free, and she can find peace and serenity in the company of her loved ones once more.

A celebration of Marguerite’s life will be held at The Simple Alternative Funeral Home in Mississauga, located at 1535 South Gateway Rd. The details and directions for the services are as follows:

Thursday, October 5th from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Friday, October 6th from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Friday October 6th at 11am, followed by interment.

The family would like to express their immense gratitude to the staff at Credit Valley Hospital, Extendicare Mississauga, and Loft for their outstanding care and compassion. Your dedication and kindness provided everyone with comfort.

Marguerite’s memory will be forever cherished by all who knew and loved her.

Lawrence, I was deeply sorry to hear of your mum’s death. A friendly nature and ever present smile are what I think of most when I remember her. It’s so sad she’s gone but I know she will be remembered for all the best reasons. All my sympathy. NTD

I would like to extend heartfelt condolences on the passing of my “adopted daughter” Marguerite. She has been a “member”of our family since 1972 and will greatly miss her and our phone calls. She wasn’t a Newfoundlander but she loved my Newfie cooking, especially the dumplings!! ❤️ Rest In Peace my love and say hi to Larry and Cheryl. Love you forever. Sending deepest sympathies to Lawrence, Susan and the rest of the family.
