My deep condolences to the Diskey Family and to Margorie’s sister Rose.
I was saddened to read of her passing.
Marjorie worked at the Oshawa Bakery with my Mom Hedwig, and they stayed in touch for years after Mom retired from Oshawa Bakery, thus I got to know Margorie. She was a gentle lady with such kind eyes, a happy heart and a beautiful smile. I would often see her at a grocery store where we both shopped, and Margorie always stopped to chat, was happy to see me and would ask about everyone in our family with truly genuine interest.
Mom spoke very highly of Margorie and I shared her fondness for Margorie.
As time passes your memories of her will grow even sweeter.
It was a gift and a pleasure for me to know a beautiful soul like Margorie.
I am sure my deceased Mom and Margorie have now hooked up once again for a hug and a chat.
Rest in peace, Margorie.

To Marjories loving family
I know how difficult Marjie’s journey was for her and the entire family. My sister Shirley Williamson kept me updated. May I extend my deepest condolences to all. Over the years your Mom never changed. She was always kind and loving. I was the younger sister growing up but she never treated me as such.
I know there is going to be a huge hole in every bodies hearts but hopefully all of the loving happy memories will help to fill the void.
May she Rest In Peace and blessings be upon the family.

I am saddened to hear about the passing of Marj. It was always so lovely to see her and Frank at many family functions. My mom and dad Joan and Bill Holodryzuk would spend time chatting with them. Marj had such a lovely smile and was always interested in the children of her friends. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Our sincere condolences to Frank and the Diskey family. I have fond memories of Marjorie’s visits to our home as a child and the many laughs that were shared. Marjorie was such a loving, generous person and a dear, dear friend to my mother Joan and I know that mom cherished their friendship.

Dear Diskey family, so sad to hear of the passing of Aunt Marjorie. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. She was a kind and loving person. My boys still refer to her as "the kissing lady".
