Although we briefly met Mrs. Bourg only once, guest book entries show that she had a positive effect on the lives of many people. After her lengthy illness, may she be in a much better place. Our sympathy is sent herewith to you, David & Colleen, and to your entire family.

Mrs. Bourg resided at Sunrise where myself and our staff care for residents that live there. Although she was not on my hospice service, I would visit with her often and just talk and laugh. She was very dear to me and will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire family. I'm sure she brought you all much joy over the years... She sure brought me happiness over the past year that I have known her. Best Wishes! Dana McBride, RN and the staff at Bridgeway Hospice

I'm so very sorry to hear Leola is gone. We shared genealogy many years ago since I am a first cousin to the Bourg family.
Sheila & I send our sympathies to the family. June H. Granger

When first I met Leola, it was through genealogy. We learned we were distantly related. She was one of the nicest ladies I have ever known. I send my sympathies to her family.
