April 2, 1934 - December 21, 2021
Laszlo (Leslie) and Margaret Maros
Laszlo (Leslie) Maros of Barrie, Ontario was born on December 4th, 1937, in the small town of Ercsi, to the late Imre and Imrene Maros. Margaret (Sugar) Maros (Downey) of Barrie, Ontario was born in North Preston, Nova Scotia on April 2nd, 1934 to the late Francis Downey Sr. and Ida Downey (Smith). Leslie was called home to Glory on December 12, 2021 and Margaret was called home to Glory on December 21, 2021 surrounded by their loving children and grandchildren at their bedside.
Leslie arrived on the shores of Nova Scotia, Canada on December 24th, 1956. He travelled with the Ercsi boys to Alberta to work in the sugar beet fields. He made his way back East and by the late 50’s moved to Montreal, Quebec. He began learning his trade as a drywall finisher and met the love of his life.
Margaret left her home of North Preston in the late 50’s, although she loved her family, church and touring with the choir, she chose to take flight and move to Montreal. Here she continued to work as a Nurse and where she met the man of her dreams.
They were so much in love and were very dedicated to each other. Leslie never called Margaret by her name, he called her “Sugar”. The two were married for 55 years and had two beautiful children. Margaret was a member of Maple View Community Church; a God fearing and praying woman. Also, she was a woman of strong faith who loved the Lord.
Leslie and Margaret left Montreal and transitioned to Toronto (Bond Head) where they settled with their family. They both looked forward to spending time with family from out of town and it was time well spent, full of love, laughter and good conversation. Margaret and Leslie touched the hearts of all who they came in contact with them. They were loving, caring, kind and very trustworthy. Margaret had the biggest most infectious smile that lifted all around her. Leslie’s extraordinary accent always amused his extended family. They were loved by so many people. Their generosity never ceased to fail. Margaret came from a large family of 15 siblings, they loved each other and were very closely knitted. Leslie also came from a large family of 12 siblings.
Leslie and Margaret loved spending time with family and friends. One of their favourite things to do together was to watch Toronto and Montreal battle it out on the ice. Leslie was a die-hard Leaf fan and Margaret loved her Canadians.
Margaret enjoyed talking on the phone with her friends, siblings, special niece and her nephew. She also loved to read the bible and pray.
