Margaret BAYNE (nee VICKERS)

Margaret Bayne (Vickers)

November 18, 1916 – January 27, 2013

Margaret passed away peacefully on Sunday surrounded by her closest family – husband Alfred, Kathlene Beebe, and niece Adriann Clark.

Margaret was born in Ontario. Her school and business years were spent in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, where her father was a school principal. In 1945, while three of her brothers were still in the armed forces overseas, she and Alf Bayne were married. Her brother Jon, of operatic fame, sang at their wedding as a teenager. In her desire to share the Good News of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, Margaret played an indispensable partnership role with her husband during their years of missionary work along the BC Coast with the Goforth and ashore as co-founder of Camp Homewood in 1948.  Alfred and Margaret have had a fulfilling retirement at Homewood where Margaret continued on as a board member and was active in the ministries of her church. She is survived by her beloved husband of 67 years, Alfred Bayne, her brother Jon Vickers, sister Ruth Marshall, sister Bernice van Vleet, and many nieces and nephews of whom she was very fond.  Thank you to the many friends who gave wonderful support during this time.  She fulfilled well her lifelong desire to serve and honour the Lord Jesus.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February the 9th at 2:00 pm at Camp Homewood on Quadra Island.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to Camp Homewood, Box 40, Heriot Bay, British Columbia, V0P 1H0. Condolences may be offered to the family at
