MARGERY BARTON

It’s been one week since family and friends gathered at St. Paul Lutheran Church to honour a lady who gave so selflessly to so many. Her memory will never be forgotten by the ones who loved her most.

Honour Marg’s memory,
It’s not easy to say good-bye…
Send your thoughts to her in Heaven
Carried on the wings of a butterfly

Her Life Lived…
Her Life Cherished…
Her Life Honoured.
