Sincere Sympathy to Norm and Family. Marj will be remembered for her true cow woman expertise, thoughtful insight, generous smile to all, her quiet way of getting her point across, for her big hugs and true dedication to the dairy industry, her family and friends, for her love of Alberta and community. Marj you will be greatly missed. Thanks for all your talks over the years and for your advice when you probably didn’t even know you were giving it away. Much respect. Carolin Turner
