    I am very sorry for your loss. I remember growing up with joining back yards when neighbours really knew each other and took care of each other. I remember Mrs Dutton’s smile and lovely garden. My thoughts are with you all.

    Lorne and Gay are very sorry to hear of Marg’s passing. We did a lot of darts and drinks with Don and Marg over the years and up at the base at Mount Lolo. Happy memories. We were also neighbors for a lot of years. Our condolences to Don and family. Rest in Peace Marg.

    So sorry to hear about your Mom Diane. It’s always difficult to lose a parent. I remember her wicked laugh!

    Sincere Condolences to Don and family, I met Marg at the Eagles and she shared a lot of funny stories with me, she used to come to the Moose and watch the Senior darts games on Tuesday afternoons, she always would keep me at the table while she decided which tickets she wanted if she wanted any at all. She made me laugh all the time, sometimes I had tears coming out of my eyes or I would laugh so hard a snort would escape and then we’d laugh harder. She was a sweetheart and I am sure she will be missed by everyone who took the time to get to know her, she can now share her stories with the other angels around her. Rest In Peace Marg…
