Marge Cook, former mother in law, was very kind and caring. She was very good grandmother to Michelle and Ryan Cook and she will be remembered fondly. She will be missed. It provides much peace of mind that she is in the arms of the Lord.

We love you Grandma Marge.

Marge golfed on our league at Highland Hills for many years. She was an inspiration to see her out there and still golfing well into her 80’s. We missed her presence when she couldn’t golf with us any more. She was a classy, lovely lady.

Marge golfed many years with Thursday night Highland Hills Ladies.
She was a wonderfully upbeat lady and an inspiration. Her company always welcome and enjoyable. She talked of her family and one could hear the love she had for them. So sorry to hear of her passing.
Sending prayer and sympathy to her family.
