Her chapel-length veil of illusion net was shirred to a coronet of roses and she carried an arm bouquet of roses and lilies.

This is about 6 blocks east of the Northlands Colisium south of 118th avenue.13
     30 March 1998 Research notes:
My family sources claimed that John Potter was adopted but his daughter Rene reports "My Dad was not adopted. We have his legal birth certificate and will send a copy to you by mail. Some may have thought he was but not so."

There is no stigma to being adopted, and a birth certificate does not prove biological parents. Carole's birth certificate gives John and Lydia Watson as her parents, even though they were her "adoptive" parents.1

Eaton Company, being an employee there for over 40 years; the last several of which she was the Personnel Supervisor of the Medicine Hat store. Service to God by serving others was Marg's life goal and delight. She loved teaching Sunday school, leading girls clubs, playing the piano, singing, praying with and doing kind deeds for friends and acquaintences.

Marg loved to do hospital visits, give a ride to those who couldn't drive and always had words of hope and encouragement for everyone. She was a truly selfless individual. Marg will be missed much by her many friends from her church and business associations. A heartfelt thank you to all who have given her special loving care at Chinook Village Assisted Living, Leisure Way and the Havenview wing of the Haven of Rest facilities over the years.2
