Velma Margaret (Beeston) Speare

November 17, 1940 ~ September 21, 2021 (age 80)


(Velma) Margaret Speare (nee Beeston) passed away peacefully in her 81st year on September 21st, 2021.

Beloved wife of (Robert) David Speare, loving sister of Donna (Keith) Griffith, precious mother of Mark (Connie) Ryan, Sherri (Bradley) Rankin, Robert (Beverley) Speare, Wendy (Calvin) Gray, Richard (Terri) Speare, Lisa (Andrew) Lesperance, Lynda (Darren) White and Leanne (Alex) Katsabouris. She was blessed with 23 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. They will greatly miss their Grammy. 

Margaret had very fond memories of her childhood, growing up on a farm on Highway 27 just south of Cookstown with her sister and parents (Thomas and Velma Beeston). Margaret was a wonderful mother who devoted her life to her children who were so blessed to have their Mom at home with them. She truly enjoyed caring for her home and for her cherished family.  

This wonderful woman led her life with love, compassion and a deep dedication to the Lord. She set a beautiful example of kindness, honesty and service to others. Surrounded by family, Margaret took her journey to her eternal home. She is a blessing, and her memory will be honored and cherished by all who loved her.

The family of Margaret Speare (nee Beeston), beloved wife of David, have planned a Celebration of Life service to share all of the joys of Margaret’s life. We have so much to be thankful for and will gather on Sunday October 17th at 2 p.m. at Timothy Christian School, 750 Essa Road, Barrie to remember this wonderful lady.  Masks and social distancing are required.
