Sending sincere condolences to all of Marg's family and friends. Though I knew Marg from the RDC Social Work diploma, as one of her Instructors, I will most cherish the memories of Marg's kind "moose alerts" from the Kerrywood Nature Centre. Her photography honoured her love of nature, and gave joy to many of us. May your memories sustain you in your grief at such an early passing.

I was fortunate to get to know Marg as I was one of her former instructors in the Social Work Program at Red Deer College. Marg was positive, an avid learner and dedicated to her studies. She helped and supported her student colleagues and contributed energy to the classes. She always had a smile for those around her. I am so sorry she is no longer with us.
