Jan. 30, 1947 - Aug. 29, 2019
MANITOBA: Unexpectedly on the morning of Aug. 29, at her home, Marge was reunited with her beloved Wally Sandy.
Marge was predeceased by her parents Andrew and Annie Denis. She left a legacy of family who miss her dearly including daughters, Anita (George) Skinner, Chandra (Dave) Prud’homme, and Tracy Todd (Michael); grandchildren, Adam Greene, Megan (Bobby) Dickinson, and Joshua and Noah Todd; great-grandchildren, Melissa Prud’homme and Joel, and Emma and Elias Dickinson; brother, Mike (Pat) Denis; sister, Helen (Bob) Dahl; brothers-in-law, Dan (Elaine) Sandy and Joe (Karn) Sandy; and nieces and nephews. We miss her quick smile and genuine interest in our lives.
Marge was born and raised in Cook’s Creek, Manitoba and in her later years moved to the outskirts of Winnipeg. She worked in the food industry before retiring. She will be forever remembered as a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, friend, and neighbor. She enjoyed her crafts, gardening, baking, cooking Ukrainian favorite foods for the holidays, canning her garden’s bounty in the fall, reading novels, and doing the New York crossword puzzles. Her tender care during Wally’s prolonged illness is legendary.
She could be stubborn, impatient, and fiercely independent when she needed to be. We marveled as she became a construction manager for numerous household improvement projects. Her faithful dog companion, Mia, protected her to the end and helped ease her loneliness these past few years.
In accordance with Marge’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal funeral service will be held.
The family asks that you honor her memory with a donation to Rock On Rescue Inc., which is a 501c3 non-profit licensed rescue group in Jones County that rescues cats and dogs. Donations can be sent via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to 1152 Hill Road, Forsyth, GA 31029.
Marge and Wally were inseparable in life and it consoles us to know they are together again.
