MacIver, Margaret Anne, 70 passed away at Southlake Regional Health Centre on Friday May 10 after being diagnosed a week earlier with an aggressive cancer. Her suffering was limited. Peggy was born on February 5, 1949 in Toronto to John and Anne MacIver. She lived in Ottawa, Ontario on Phillip Drive and Newmarket, Ontario on Park Avenue where she was an excellent student and supporter of all things Newmarket High School. Her earlier experience in Ottawa took her to Carleton University where she graduated with a BA in English. This lead the way to many years of teaching, most of which were done in Winnipeg, Manitoba where she also became a pillar of the community and a lover of most things Winnipeg! It was here she became a mother, as a single parent, to Dallas John and was an exceptionally loving grandmother to Damian and Aleah. Despite retiring from the classroom and moving back to Newmarket, Peg did take on a role at the TDSB and was quite proud to show younger educators how to interact with students on the Autistic spectrum. Margaret was good at what she did because she was passionate about her role. Peggy was a wonderful mother to Dallas, aunt to Andy, Kathryn, Rachel, Nicole, Kelly and Todd and grandmother to Damian and Aleah. She was a good sister who was always in the corner for her siblings, Bill and Jane. Services will be held on Friday May 17, at the Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main St. S., Newmarket, starting with a visitation at 10 a.m.. A short service will follow at 11. Please join us in celebrating the life of Margaret Anne MacIver. Donations would be appreciated to Southlake’s Palliative Care facility. On-line condolences may be made at

I will always remember Peggy's smile and laugh. We met on a tour bus in Portugal and following that initial meeting, we met for walks and coffee during the same trip. Peggy was so at ease with people. Travelling on her own, her personality was a magnet for making new friends. Peggy visited out my way in Napanee where we toured wine country in Prince Edward County. I loved reading her Facebook posts. There is no doubt that family came first in her life. My sympathies to her son, grandchildren and siblings. We her friends will remember Peggy always. Rest in peace you clever, spontaneous and live loving gal. Joanne Harrington

To my regret, I have not been in touch with Peggy since we left Carleton in 1970 but for a year or two while we were students in Ottawa we were pretty close. With her compassion and inquisitive mind I am not surprised she became a teacher and focused on helping those on the autism spectrum. I very fondly recall her sense of humour and energy, and her passion for Newmarket. She must have been a wonderful mother and grandmother. My condolences to her son, grandchildren, siblings and I am sure, many, many friends.
