She showed the most amazing strength, determination, and willpower to remain here, as long as she possibly could, to be with me and all of our family. I will miss everything about her. Marg and I did everything together. I cherished all of the moments Marg and I had with our family and friends through the years. I am forever blessed, that she chose me. Love, Ron.

Marg’s parents were Ernest and Margaret Mary Latour. Marg’s children and their partners are Sue Bryden (Kirk deceased), Brenda Vidmar, Kathy (Rob) Dutourgeerling, Rick (Tania) Lane, and Gail (Bill) Best. Marg’s grandchildren and their partners are: Dustin McCulloch (Trish Pollard), Brandon McCulloch (Jocelyne Doucet); Jeff Vidmar, Jenny (Adam) Connors, Reg Vidmar (Melissa Harris), Stephanie Vidmar (Dave Ronan), Josh and Hilary Dutourgeerling, and Kyren and Avery Lane. Marg’s great-grandchild is Stryfe Vidmar. Marg’s sisters and brothers and husbands and wives include: Hilda Latour (Sister Mary Julia), Roy Latour (Ann deceased), Earl Latour, deceased (Pauline deceased), Helen Blackmore, deceased (Fred deceased), Jack Latour, deceased (Ruth), Thelma Maheu, deceased (Jerry deceased), and Ernie Latour, deceased (Verna).  Marg loved Stanley and Seymour, who stayed by her side, bringing her much comfort and peace.

I have much gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Maddison, and all the staff, support workers and volunteers at St. Joseph’s Hospice in Sarnia, for all of their devotion and loving care shown to my wife and our family.
