Cynthia Margot Izard

January 7, 1944 - October 12, 2018


Cynthia Margot Izard (1944-2018)

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our sister on 12th October 2018 at age 74 in Duncan B.C.  After a long illness, she is now finally at peace. We are grateful to the Cowichan Regional Hospital for her care.  Predeceased by her parents, Arthur and Cynthia, Margot is survived by her two brothers, Edward (Ted) Izard and John Izard.

She was a truly dynamic person who taught for 8 years, then took on a varied career of music, song writing and “co-operative” radio. Along the way, she loved to travel, especially in Europe and North Africa where she worked as a trilingual receptionist, proof reader as well being an “itinerate shawl seller” in Portugal. Returning to Canada, she then tried her hand at logging, prospecting and later graphic design for mining companies.

She was a strong activist with a passion to support causes for those less fortunate. She was an ardent supporter of civil liberties and had an insatiable curiosity about learning new things on her computer.  Until 2016, she spent 8 years being “the face behind camera”, recording the Duncan Council Meetings.

She grew up in Victoria and attended Norfolk House, Oak Bay High School and Strathcona Lodge. Later she attended UVIC where she received Bachelor of Education Degree in 1966. She was an accomplished pianist having completed the Toronto Conservatory of Music grade IX  level

A Celebration of Life is planned for  Saturday 17th  November 2018 at 2 PM at the HW Wallace Cremation  and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan BC. Please come and join us to celebrate Margot’s life.

Relation: Used to chat her up

If this is the Lady who used to live next door to Macadam Park I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed our conversations back in the day. I used to work for the City of Duncan so I had many chances to chat with her when we were working in the area. Nice Lady, smart Lady, friendly Lady. May she rest in peace and hook up with her old dog on the rainbow bridge.
