  1. I cannot describe in words how sad I am for Fiona’s family, Derek, Doreen, Arlene, Debra, Belinda and Mark whom has been part of the family for a long time and Fiona’s soul mate. I will miss the wit, spirit and energy Fiona would share whenever family got together and of course the golf games with Fiona and Mark. Wish I was there in Calgary. Big hugs.

    My deepest sympathies during this time. Fiona was exceptional. We shared a love of dogs and I loved seeing the pictures she shared with everyone. I’ve known Fiona since kindergarten and we went all through school together. We reconnected when she was working at AMA and I’ve enjoyed learning about the great woman she became and wish I could have spent more time with her personally. I’m so saddened that I will miss her service this weekend as I’m out of town but know I will be thinking of her and all of those that loved her dearly!
    My thoughts are with you all.

  3. My deepest sympathies to Mark and Fiona’s family and many friends.
    What a great person Fiona was. Funny, caring, sincere. A great friend and boss. Had a great time playing volleyball with her, going away on girls adventures, or hanging out and catching up.
    With a heavy heart I say goodbye

    My heartfelt condolences to Mark and Fiona’s family. Fiona was a warm, fun, creative and amazing woman. She hired me at AMA and was so supportive and upbeat all the time. I am sure I am not the only one who is profoundly shocked that I will never see her again. The last time I saw her she was so relaxed, happy, tanned, fit and just seemed to be loving life! RIP Fiona, you are sadly missed. God must have needed you.
