August 6, 1927 - July 2, 2013
Thompson, Margaret Hastings (RN) – Beloved wife of Rev. E.P. Thompson, Halifax, died peacefully in St. Vincent’s Nursing Home on July 2, 2013, after a prolonged illness. Margaret, known affectionately to her many friends as Johnnie, was born on August 6, 1927, in Upper Stewiacke. She was nurtured by her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. R.C. Johnson, and her grandparents, the late Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Cox in a loving and faith oriented family. Early education was in the village school and Truro Academy, and she graduated from the Victoria General School of Nursing in 1950. She then joined the nursing staff of the hospital as a caring and compassionate nursing professional. She is survived by her husband; daughter, Ann Stalker, Kenzieville and her children, Teddy, Rebecca, and Robbie; son, David K. Lake Thompson and Kathy, Mabou and their children, Gillian and Ian; son John Bruce and his wife Wendy and their children, Breann and Katie, London Ont.; son Dr. Peter Thompson, Kingston Ont. Margaret maintained a lifelong relationship with the outstanding group of nurses from her graduating class. She was a consistent supporter of the United Church Women wherever she lived and was an enthusiastic member of the Rug Hookers of Nova Scotia. Her artistic ability was recognized in her painting and especially in her prize winning hooked rugs. Her generous nature and fabulous cooking were extended to the hundreds of visitors whom she welcomed to Mansas in New Brunswick, Ontario and Nova Scotia. The deep love which she gave her children, grandchildren and husband will never be forgotten. Her outgoing personality produced a wide circle of friends and her passing is deeply mourned. Cremation has taken place. Visiting hours in Atlantic Funeral homes, 6552 Bayer’s Rd., Halifax will be 2-4 and 7-9 pm on Thursday. A service of Thanksgiving will be held in Edgewood-Oxford United Church, Connaught Avenue, Halifax on Friday at 2pm with Rev. David Hann and Rev. Wayne McCarther officiating. Interment will be in Brookside Cemetery, Bedford. A reception in Atlantic Funeral Home will follow the church service. Family flowers only, but gifts may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia, Edgewood-Oxford United Church or, with appreciation for many loving and tender years of care, St. Vincent’s Nursing Home. Gentle in her life and passing, Margaret was loved and appreciated by her family and friends. For online condolences, please visit: www.atlanticfuneralhomes.com
