    To Dale and Family,
    We were deeply saddened by the loss of your mom, Marjorie has been a joy to work with, she never say NO to our exercises unless she is really tired and wanting to sleep instead, but 95% of the time she always get up and walk with me. I really enjoy our chats and I really enjoy listening to her stories, she really made me laugh and smile showing me the pictures on her wall. The past couple of weeks I have been visiting your mom not just for the exercises but because I am passing by anyways, I will always make sure I say hello to her. I even helped her to find some of the pieces of the puzzles she is working on, and she will be so happy if I find one, your mother is such a sweetheart to all of us. Losing a loved one is difficult. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. To Dale and family,
    Marjoie brought many smiles to our faces with her humour and wit. She really impressed us with her embracing of modern technology. She loved using the computer. She always said she was going live in class and go out in style. I believe Marjorie full filled her dreams. We are going to miss her conversations, jokes and wit.

    Mae and Cory

  11. Please accept my condolences at this very sad time. Marjorie was very kind to me when I started to play duplicate bridge and partnered me through my learning the basics. She taught me a lot and was delightful to see every week.

    Dale and family
    I was away last week and missed news of your Mom’s passing. I will always remember her as a real professional who cared about people. She made my job as Executive Director so much easier because I never had to worry about the details. She was really a good Scout. May she rest in peace.
