You have gone to join Dad, Frida, Menka, Louie, Kay, Tim and many others who will greet you with open arms. Once again we are diminished but you leave us well, with the cupboards full, your work here done. God bless you and thank you for everything we have. Rest in peace. Our thoughts will be with you always. The family would like to thank Doctors Taylor and Rubin and the entire team at Toronto General Hospital that went to extraordinary lengths for Eva.

Mrs. Margery "Bunny" Quail (nee: Cambon)
February 15, 1918 - March 21, 2008
Quietly, on Easter Friday, at Sunnybrook Veterans Hospital. Margery Cambon was born in Quebec City on February 15, 1918 to George Cambon, an army musician, and his wife Lucy Duffield. Bunny was amongst the first Canadian women soldiers to cross the Atlantic in 1939 to join the war effort. As a nursing sister she was chosen by Dorothy Machem, future president of Womens College Hospital, to join the first plastic surgery unit in Basingstoke England. Bunny met her future husband, John Quail, who was an injured soldier on her hospital ward. They were married by her uncle Reverend John Duffield, in St. Stephen’s church in Twickenham, England. Bunny was model of her professionalism as a nurse, latterly at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital where she was eventually persuaded to retire in her 68th year. Bunny and John had a great love of family and friends and fun. Their dinner table was seldom empty, often entertaining a surprise guest by lifting a glass of good cheer. Bunny is predeceased by her husband John Quail, her sister Muriel and her brother Dr. Ken Cambon. She is survived by her sister Noreen and her brother Austen Cambon as well as her loving children Susan Fitzgerald (Michael), Judi Quail (Collin Bradley), Rev.
