Marguerite Georgina (FOX) WASSEGIJIG
Born March 22, 1926, passed away March 3, 2002.
Better known to all as Margaret, she entered this world the daughter of John FOX and Josephine {OSAWABINE) FOX. She spent the first year of her life "roughing it" at Collin's Inlet where her father made a living for them working in the pulpwood industry. The eldest of many children, she is survived by many brothers and sisters: Paul (wife Margaret deceased), Dominic (wife Agnes), Thomas (wife Angeline), Mary, Ida (deceased), Lloyd (friend Helen), Edward (wife Dorothy). On May 1st, 1945 she married Lawrence WASSEGIJIG (died 1976.) They are survived by their children, Frank (friend Emily), Helen, Dorothy Kennedy (husband David,) Colleen MIGWANS (husband Clyde.) Marguerite is predeceased by two sons: Wilfred Robert FOX (died 1945,) and Harvey Alfred (died 1985). Grandchildren Sara, Kara and David Jr. brought her many years of joy and they will miss her. She worked hard for family most of her life, and this made her body strong enough to resist the health challenges that faced her later in life. She battled surgeries for cataracts, breast cancer, and heart disease with grace, but her body finally succumbed to the effects of Parkinson's and liver disease. Her extended family in this latter stage of her life included her doctors and the staff at the Wikwemikong Nursing Home.
She travels now to her next life, where she will join those loved ones who have gone before her. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Island Funeral Home. Visitation was held on Tuesday March 5, 2002 at the Buzwah Church. Funeral Mass took place at the Holy Cross Mission Church on Thursday, March 7 with Father Bert Foliot as celebrant.
