    Tim and family: So sorry to hear about your mom…sending my condolences to you at this sad time..take care.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your mother/grandmother. She was a very cool lady. I worked with her at Woolco and she was my chshier trainer. As she tought me thru the first week, I came to know that her and my mother shared their childhood together in Fort Frances ( we are just now trying to look into this as we do our Family Tree). That made me proud to be working under her.
    A special person in my life, I will miss her even more now as I did when she moved away. But I will always have her words of advice in my heart. Always Remeber those times yourself.

    My condolences at this time of loss. Marg was my first supervisor back in my Woolco days and she was a wonderful mentor that shaped by work ethic. She was blessed with a good heart, much patience and never a bad word about anyone. She will be missed

  8. My sincere condolences on the passing of Marg. I was on the dragon boat team with her and enjoyed the contributions and fun we had with her & Vicky . It is so long ago now but I remembered their determination to keep up their part. None of us had a clue what we were doing but we enjoyed the trying.
