Margaret Mary Evoy (née Jessup), born in Ottawa, November 23, 1919, passed away peacefully on Thursday April 13, 2017 at Stonehaven Manor, Kanata. Margaret was the beloved wife and best friend to Nelson for 79 years. They recently were honoured as Canada's longest married couple.

Margaret leaves a vast void in a large family who loved her. Heartfelt thanks to each of the many caring staff at Stonehaven Manor, Dr. Shukle, and the palliative care team, especially Susann, who helped mom and each of the family, during this journey.
