Lysick, Margaret Louise (nee Coyle)

Passed away peacefully with her family by her side at Hospice Niagara on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at the age of 87 years. Predeceased by her husband Fred (1973). Loving mother of Jim (Lorenzo) and Carol (Derek). Cherished grandmother of Brittany (Rob) and Dillon (Summer). Dear sister of Anne, Bernard (Kathy) and predeceased by Betty. Missed also by her nephew, Brendan (Kim).

Margaret was a teacher for over 30 years in the area. She was well loved and respected by her students. She was devoted to her family, generous to a fault and the first person to jump in to assist those in need. Margaret was known for her intelligence, exuberant laugh and the ability to laugh at herself. She loved animals, especially dogs. Margaret will be dearly missed by her many friends and family.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Lookout Ridge Retirement Home for mom's exceptional care, and also to Hospice Niagara for their kindness and compassion. A special thanks to her two palliative care nurses Kim and Stephanie.

Friends will be received by the family at the PELHAM FUNERAL HOME, 1292 Pelham Street, Fonthill on Sunday, August 23rd from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. The Funeral Mass to honour Margaret's life will take place at St. Alexander's Catholic Church, 50 Pelham Town Square, Fonthill on Monday, August 24th beginning at 11:00 am. Interment will follow at Hillside Cemetery. (Note: Because of limited capacity at the church due to Covid-19 restrictions, please call Pelham Funeral Home at 905-892-5762 if you plan on attending the funeral mass)
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Hospice Niagara or the Walker Family Cancer Centre.

Margaret, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what a profound influence you have had on so many people throughout your life.
I have only known you for the past 19 years but from all the things I have heard from both Jim and Carol, and from my own personal experience knowing you , I know that you have influenced so many people’s lives throughout your life.
I know how important it was for you to be a teacher; you must have thought hundreds, if not thousands of young children throughout your career as an educator.
Please know that you have had a profound positive influence on all those children you met on a daily basis for so many years; those children are now adults and make up the fabric of our society. Some of them may be renowned professionals in whatever field they chose to get into, many others may be skilled entrepreneurs, others may now have their own families and pass on to their own children the values that you, as a teacher, thought them as young students. In all cases, their success in life is in large part due to their own teacher: YOU.
What a profound, positive and long lasting impact you have had on so many people !( many more than you can think of).
As far as I am concerned, you have always been very kind to me. You embraced me as if I were were your own son from the very beginning; I am forever grateful to you for that, from the bottom of my heart.
I promise I will always take care of Jim and look after him till the day I die.
I wanted to tell you all these things now, since I never had the opportunity to tell my own mother, before she passed away, how much of an influence she was on my own life and how much I loved her.

Love, now and forever....

Margaret, you will always be remembered as the strongest and loyalist supporter and president of the Brian King, PI fan club. (Actually I think you were the only member, at least who would admit it.) The thought of not having a loyal follower to watch for any media coverage is going to be hard. I know your presence is going to be missed by all your family and friends who always had nothing but great things to be said about you. Your contribution to society as a single mother and teacher for 40 years and mentor and supporter of your sisters was a remarkable life achievement. Your daily contact with your children did not stop even after they became maturing adults themselves. We know you are in a better place now where your spirit can roam free!

Love, Brian D. King, PI
