    I was saddened to hear of Mrs Funk’s passing.

    I went to Mount Royal College with Greg in 1974 and met the family then. We had so many fond memories of those days. Greg and I served together with the RCMP, again we shared many fond memories. I retired with 35 years and there is still a number of us College types that still keep touch…I will be sure to let our friends know. We hope and pray that you will find some comfort in knowing that Marie has been re-united with her best friend and husband Henry and their son Greg in heaven !

    Gwen, Darla and families, Very sorry on the loss of your Mom. I remember Aunt Marie from a very young age especially her laugh and her warmness. I can hear her laugh right now. Also very fond memories of many games of cards at my Grandparents house. Your mom was so kind and helpful to my mom when they lived in Dover.

    Thinking of you all.
