Pauline Fischer, Jo-Anne & Paul Cassidy, Cheryl & Neil Prior

As a sister in law and a special Aunt, she is remembered for living her life to the fullest for as long as she was able. We admired her as she carried on in life with spunk and joy no matter what it presented. She enjoyed her friends and family. We have so many memories of travel companionship, fishing trips, bingo, weddings, her amazing cooking, baking and especially her popcorn balls. She worked so hard at her job, volunteered and showed love and kindness at all times. A real champion and an example to emulate. We were proud to have her in our lives.

I have so many happy memories of Auntie Margie. Whether we were at her home in Fort Saskatchewan or the farm near our home we always had so much fun with her. So much so we often didn’t want to go home. I remember staying with her so she could take us to VBS at her church. She would spoil us with root beer from the great big jug she would get filled at A&W or take us to the outdoor pool. I loved eating the wonderful food she made (especially her chicken stew) and how special and loved she always made us feel. Those memories will always be cherished and we were truly blessed to have her in our lives.

On behalf of my mom Doreen and the entire Valmore Fischer part of the Fischer family we would like to send our condolences to all of Auntie Marj’s family. Auntie Marj was an amazingly strong vibrant gentle fun loving soul. She always greeted you with incredible kindness and went out of her way to make you feel special when she saw you. Auntie was an amazing cook and special times with her at family gatherings are fondly remembered. Her ability to raise great kids after losing Uncle Jim too young was a lesson for all in resilience and inner strength. Her love of physical activity and willingness to try just about anything was inspirational to witness. Hers was a life to celebrate and admire. We will miss her dearly.

Blessing to the whole family. Aunt Marg. is finally resting in peace. She was always a strong and determined lady. She definitely had the Fischer stubbornness. Sorry we won’t be at the memorial. Were going to be “baking” in Nashville watching our grandson shooting in the worlds archery program NASP. God bless your whole family. We’ll be thinking of you. Love Hugh and Linda
