I am so sorry, Valerie, to hear of your Mom’s passing. I only knew you and your Mom during her time at Tideview, but her smile alway delighted me. Watching you take such dedicated loving care of you Mom spoke volumes of the love between you, and so I can only imagine the great loss you and your family are feeling. I hope you can take solace in your many happy memories.
I will miss seeing you both.
Take care,
Angela (Ruth)

Marg was very patient and kind to me when I used to visit my Aunt Marjorie Theriault in East Ferry. Valerie and I used to "hang out" together when we were around 10-12 years old and Marg made sure we got lots of fresh air - LOL! - now you girls go out and play! Sincere condolences to Valerie, Wayne & Paul and all of her loved ones. May she rest in peace!

My sincerest condolences to Marg's family. I have many found memories of Marguerite. Marg & Newman were such great friends of my grandparents, Lee & Phyllis Westcott. Our families have often been there to help each other in times of need. As much as I am sorry to hear the news, I can't help but smile when I think of the reunion that is happening in heaven right now. I can just picture Marg, Newman, Lee, Phyllis, Ada & Marilee all around a kitchen table catching up on old times. God be with you until we meet again Marguerite.
