My sincere condolences to Ken and family on Margaret's passing. My prayers are with you and Margaret's extended family at this time. I have wonderful memories of the years that I spent coming to the Goertzen house to visit with the girls, and in later years of connecting with her at various times through our lives, and remember Margaret as always smiling, friendly and loved her sense of humor. She was a very special, God fearing person, and will be missed. May you all find God's nearness during this sad and difficult time.

I'm Dianne Hoeppner's sister from Kelowna and I met Marge when she was visiting at Dianne's in 2007. I remember that Dianne very much enjoyed your support at that time and told me of friendship that they had enjoyed with you. I'm sorry for your loss and trust your family memories will give you continued strength and courage.
