Mrs. Duncan was my softball coach for 2 seasons....and what an excellent coach she was.....so calm and fair with all her players. I also so enjoyed her company at morning coffee breaks at John’s Bakery. She did so much for the Morden community.

Rest in peace Marg. She was a lovely, lovely person. I had the opportunity to curl with her and work with her on curling boards and I always cherish those memories.
