Mom was a member of the Alzheimer Club in Wallaceburg, and also was a member of the New Beginnings Club in Chatham, in which she enjoyed the time with friends and making memories and brought her much joy. A very deep and heartfelt thank you to all the staff at the Chatham-Kent Hospice in keeping our moms dignity, smiles and compassion for her, also for all the wonderful care at our home to allow her to be where she loved. A special thank you to Dr. Hall, and the PSW nursing staff, friends and family for showing up and helping at a moment’s notice and showing her the compassion and dignity she so very much deserved. There is no amount of words that could ever be said on the support mom received. Mom so loved the care she received, mom touched so many people throughout her life and if you were lucky enough to have known her you were so much better for it. Mom (Marjorie) is and will always be the strongest women I know, you will forever be loved and missed.
