Mavis (Hegadoren) De Marco

September 15, 1932 ~ May 28, 2022 (age 89)



It is with both great sadness and great gratitude for a life well lived that we announce the passing of Mavis De Marco (nee Hegadoren) on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at the age of 89.  Mavis was the loving mother of Dario (Linda), Jon, and Julie (Paul O’Ryan); devoted grandmother of Andrew, Rachel and Rebecca, and the late Leland and Daniel; beloved daughter of the late Harry and Bessie (Milligan); cherished sister of June Coleman and the late Carnduff, Harley, Gary and Betty McLean. She also treasured her grandchildren Lisa, Nikki and Shane and their families..

Mavis’ love of family knew no bounds. She was kind, strong, generous, humble, welcoming and creative. Her gentle charm endeared her to everyone she met. She raised her family in Toronto but happily lived out her retirement in her beloved childhood home in Peterborough, tending her beautiful garden and looking forward to her frequent visits with her grandchildren.

A celebration of Mavis’ life will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2022 at 11:00am at the HIGHLAND PARK FUNERAL CENTRE, 2510 Bensfort Rd, Peterborough, Ontario with reception to follow. Cremation has taken place and interment will occur privately. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Arthritis Society would be appreciated by the family.  On-line condolences may be made at
