    We wish to share our sympathy with everyone whom loved Margie, in one way or another. She was a Mother a wife, a Grandmother, a sister, a sister-in-law, an Aunt, and a good friend. To know Margie was to love her. She always had this zest for living and enjoying her life, and she did have a good one. Yes she will certainly be missed by everyone that knew her, and I know that we will miss her a lot . Allan and Margie always had great times and lot’s of laughter which was good to see for a brother and sister. We will truly miss her, but we will always have all of the great memories.
    May you rest in peace Margie. All our Love Patty and Allan

  3. Hello Carol,
    My sincerest condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother. She was such a lovely and pleasant woman and I always enjoyed talking with her when I was visiting my mom, Joan Penner, at Scenic Acres. What a wonderful daughter you were to her, always visiting and taking her out and about. You will miss her immensely, I’m sure and although it is a sad hour for your family, it is not a tragic one when Margie lived such a long and what appeared to me, a happy life with all of you. Sincerely, Leona Munro
    (Loved the current photo of her in the paper…it sure captured how I think of her)

    Carol, Garry & Family
    Our thought and prayers go out to you all in the loss of your wonderful Mom, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. To me she was a wonderful Aunt and we will always have wonderful memories. Too many to mention, we had so many laughs together and I will always cherish those moments, day’s, and years forever. She was not only an Aunt to me she was a great friend. She is at peace now, and no longer suffering, as she was saying she was ready to go and be with Eve! My Mom. Just remember no one can every take away all of the wonderful memories you will always have.
