Margaret Dawne Stokes, 80, of Fort Myers, Florida passed away on February 24, 2018 at Hope Hospice. She was born on February 28, 1937 in Toronto, Canada to the late George and Louisa (Williams) Sexsmith.  In the 1970’s in Toronto, she was instrumental in creating the East Agincourt Community Association, the East Agincourt Softball Association, and she helped in purchasing playground equipment for C.D. Farquharson Public School.  She was an active fundraiser with her husband for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in Canada.

After moving to Florida with her husband, she enjoyed planning a weekly community social event to encourage friends to mix and mingle, coordinated many bus trips to to the Immokalee Casino, and planed trips to Busch Gardens and a Caribbean Cruise that would bring neighbors together. She was one who cared about everyone else more than herself.  Margaret always enjoyed visiting with friends and family. She is survived by her son, Wayne T. Stokes; her brothers, George Sexsmith, Delbert Sexsmith, Frank Sexsmith; and her sister, Lois Smith. Margaret was preceded in death by her beloved husband Cyril Stokes who passed away in 2005

    Hi Wayne,
    So sorry to hear about your mom. I have known her since I was 5. Living only a few doors away then right next door on Tidworth
    Our family was close and she was like a second mother to me.
    She fed us during school lunch hour and watched us after school as we both probably drove her nuts with our antics.
    Your dad and her gave me my first full time job at FES which I greatly appreciated. She was always kind and positive. Your dad and her are together again forever. Stay strong my friend
