    We have fond memories of growing up in Olds across the alley from your family. Your Mom was a wonderful caring lady. We always appreciated how she reached out to our Mom and Dad when they were older. Marty once helped her trap the mole in her garden and she was so grateful. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time.
    Marty and Yvonne Overguard (Oxtoby)

  11. Dear Liz, Joan and Lynn,
    I was sorry to read about Marj’s death.
    I really missed her when she left Olds. We had some good visits about our gardens and some great trips out to greenhouses.
    We also had some great adventures to shop in Stettler for clothes and other treats.
    I’m sure you miss her terribly. Every time I go by her house I think of her. Hope you are well. I think of you often.
    Helen Wray
