Marg always kept herself busy over the years - as a stay-at-home mom, managing various businesses, and working part-time at Eaton's, and as an accounting clerk at the auctions. She was an avid sports competitor with a great love of curling and golfing, which took her to many bonspiels and tournaments over the years with very special friends.

There was nothing and no one Marg loved more and held close to her heart than her family.
