Marj was a fun loving person with a big and generous heart for her family and friends. She gave very generously of her time and money to many things including her work with the first nation people. Samaritan's purse and of course the teresa group.personally we enjoyed the trips herself and Susan made to Ireland. We enjoyed many family occasions together also trips to different parts of Ireland. She once remarked she probably saw more of Ireland than some of the Irish did. She really appreciated these trips and we all enjoyed them together. We also enjoyed the times we spent together in our home and the many chats we had. Of course we also enjoyed trips to visit Marj and the family in Canada we were made very welcome and she did her best to make our trips exciting and enjoyable. In recent times when we were no longer able to get together in person, we enjoyed long catchups on the phone about once a month. We will miss you very much Marj but you are now at peace with our heavenly father and reunited with your much loved Alf and Susan and friends that have gone on before you. Our deepest sympathy to John, Michael,Stuart and all the family circle.
Spencer Daphne, Joyce and all the family.
