My memory of Morag will always be that from the very beginning when I first met her, was that we had topics to talk about other than work. Yes, it was at Montreal Trust when we first met and through all the days of our friendship, the first topic was our family.
My Love and Friendship to all who had the chance to know this great lady.

I enjoyed when Morag and I would go to Chris and Tammy’s for dinner and a game of cards. I will miss that.

Sneaking outside at Christmas parties and laughing. That’s how I will always remember her. Laughing.
I always looked forward to chatting with Morag, never a dull conversation😊

I offer my sincere condolences to Morag's family and friends. Morag was a great colleague and she will be dearly missed by her co-workers and clients. She always had wise advice to offer and she was patient and kind. She also had an excellent reputation for her diligence, attention to detail, and much more. We bonded over our love of flowers. Her memory will not be forgotten.

I have worked with Morag for several decades and we have been friends for many, many years. I have invited her to our annual Yuletide Banquet every December since at least the late 1990's and she was always a delightful, up-beat and charming guest. As one of the five Computershare "Caballeros", we went to our favourite pizzeria, the "Olympic" on Gloucester Street, every quarter and shared wonderful stories and experiences with one another. Our coffees together were always a pleasure, and we never ran out of "stuff" to talk about. I have a tiny little story to tell which is very meaningful to me. During one of our coffees last year, she talked about recent conversations with the folks at one of the banks who was a client of hers - and the contact spoke to her a little about the new $10 bills which had just come out a month or two before. I mentioned that I had not yet seen one and I wondered how they looked - immediately Morag brought out one of the brand new bills from her pursue and handed it to me to examine. When I gestured to return it, she insisted, "Oh no, that's for you. You keep that one." I said, "But that's ten bucks - why?". She replied, "It's just $10 - it's yours.". I was astonished, and thankful. In over 60 years, no one has ever just given me a big bill just like that - and I still have it today. Now, I am very certain that I shall always have that bill. I thought then, as I think now, that THAT bill is more than just any $10 to me. And so it is. God with her, always. Rest Eternal grant unto her, Oh Lord, and may Light Perpetual shine upon her.

My deepest condolences to Morag Abraham's family. I worked with Morag for many years going back to Montreal Trust days where we would get together for co-worker's birthdays, special lunches and Christmas parties. Morag was always a hardworking employee staying late many times to ensure she did her best. Morag was a wonderful friendly person. I am sorry she was not able to enjoy her retirement years with family and friends. We will miss her dearly. May her soul rest in peace. Irene Zelman- Hallford

Share a memory...OK...Every Saturday as a child is a memory of you and Katy taking me grocery shopping and then lunch at Muddy Ducks or to Cloverdale Mall to the salon. Give her a hug for me. I'm overcome with emotion as I think back...remembering. There's too many to mention here but I will hold them all dear in my heart. You always gave the best advice, whether I wanted to hear it or not. You made the best tea too. A very strong and kind person anyone would be proud to know. I will be forever grateful to have been a part of your life and will cherish all the bits of wisdom you have left with me. May you rest peacefully now.

Love Always Shawna and Family.
