Marg doted on her sons and grandkids, which were her pride and joy. She had many friends as she was so kind, caring and loving. She had a heart of gold.

Marg loved sports. She curled, played golf, baseball and bridge. She loved to travel and spending time at camp in Ignace.

Marg has been a member of T.O.P.S for many years; belonged to the Donna Club at Knox and was a member of the New Horizons. She was active with Central Community Club in early years. Marg enjoyed her outings for lunches and coffee.

Was very sorry to see that your dear mother and grandmother passed away. It's probably been several years since I've run into her but will always remember what a lovely person she was and her beautiful smile. She was always so friendly. Can remember when she used to help out in a clothing store and when I came in she'd always try to help me find just the right outfit. If you're a larger size sometimes sales people are a bit rude but she never was and I felt I could trust her if she said something looked good.

When sitting in my recliner I can see her house and often would see her out on the deck or going up the hill to what I call "the blue house." Or I'd see laughing grandchildren running down the hill to her place. Back when I used to garden if I was outside and she and your dad drove by they always waved and smiled. Although I didn't know her really well, I suspect the phrase in her obituary "you made the world a better place" is very true. My deepest sympathy to all the family.

It is with shock and sadness to have learned of the passing of Marggie. I met her when she and Herb rented a suite at my parents home. They were newly wed. She always had a smile and was very gracious. My deepest sympathies to her children and family.💐
