"Margie, as we at the Mack Centre called her, was highly thought of and respected by everyone - fellow teachers, students, support staff, hospital staff and patients. SHe was always calm, reassuring and available to listen even when a headache was making her feel miserable. Margie never complained. I'll miss her smile, her "now Diane", and her friendship. We loved her."
