    Mrs Frutiger was working in the nursery when I started working as a young little nurse in 1975. She was always so kind and helpful to me. I eventually became her head nurse and we still worked together at times. She was a very sweet and giving lady. So sorry for your loss.

    There are not enough words to express what a kind wonderful woman Margie was and the positive impact she had on many lives. Long before her grandson Craig became my son-in-law, I worked with Margie. She would often share with me how proud she was of her children and what was happening in their lives. Margie would light up when she spoke of her “babies” (her children). Her love of babies continued throughout her life and I know she left a positive mark on each one she touched. Margie was loved by many including myself. Her absence at holidays, birthdays and all other gatherings will be hugh but we will know that she is there watching and smiling. Her kindness lives on in her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and her great great grandchild. What a grand legacy she leaves.

    Dear Gayle and family:
    Knowing and loving your mother was a priviledge for us. She will be missed by us and know that our prayers are with you and your family,
    love, clara and benny
