Marj had a way of drawing people to her - the welcoming smile, the positive energy. She was quick to share her faith and her genuine interest in people was ever present. It was beautiful to see her and Bert together, because we all want the kind of love those two shared. May knowing they are forever together again bring you comfort. Peace Be With You.

To Dennis, Debra and Kristine,

I loved sharing memories of our youthful days on Greendale when I would see your Mom and Dad at Dunlop when I returned home from Alberta/ BC - was greeted so warmly by both which meant so much to me. They were a very lovely, loving couple and I felt quite valued they remembered us - the Warwicks from 944 Greendale and always asked about Gail and Bob - my condolences and sympathy to you and your children as you adjust to their absence Hugs Diane ( eldest)

My sympathies to everyone. Things were always lively with Marj around! I have many happy memories when her and Mert visited my grandparents (Parker and Selma) lots of playing cards,suntanning at the beach or in Nana's back yard,corn boils,jokes,laughs and the Blue Jays! I'm sure her, Shirley and my grandmother are having lots of laughs now!
