Auntie Margie was a treasured member of our Tookey clan. I always enjoyed chatting with her. She loved sharing her wisdom on many topics! My heart goes out to you my cousins along with your children and their children. I know full well what a loss this is. I also know that you are comforted knowing that your mom is where she wants to be, resting in eternal peace with your dear dad.
Love to all of you,

I have so many special memories of Margie and Freddie. All the summers we spent at Pigeon Lake, morning barbecues, playing canasta when it rained and just spending quality time with great friends. Margie was my dear friend and a second mother to my youngest daughter. We loved you very much Margie and you will be missed but always in our hearts.
