  3. The South Deerfoot Youth Justice Committee would like to pass along our heartfelt condolences to Marg’s family. Marg was instrumental in the formation of our committee. She held many different roles and was always ready to lend a hand and get involved. She helped create one of the strongest committees in the city. We appreciated all of her hard work and involvement. She was always welcoming to new volunteers and took them “under her wing”. All of our volunteers thank her for her hard work and we are all thinking of her family at this difficult time. Hopefully all of these positive memories is helpful during this time.
