    I am so sorry to hear about the death of Marg. I first met her many years ago at the Kelowna family Y. More recently I had the opportunity to interact with her at Sunpointe where I am a volunteer. She was a lovely person and will be much missed.

    I am so sorry to hear of Marg's passing. I always knew she had a bag of popcorn and a glass of wine at the Chief's game. I was wondering where she was at the game last Friday. I will surely miss her smile.

    Shocked and stunned to learn of this tragic news. Just learned of this at the Russia Sweden hockey game at Prospera Place last evening. Could not believe the news when a family member told me.
    I last saw Marg on the 8th Dec as she sat next to us at the Chiefs Hockey game and we gave her a ride home. I too will miss her positive energy, laugh and smile!
    My thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.
