I am so very sorry to learn of Midge’s passing. She was a good friend to our mother Janet for many years, and never more so than in the last year of Mom’s life. We knew Midge was struggling with health issues of her own during that time, but her kindness and caring toward Mom never wavered. Please accept my condolences on your loss at this very trying time for all of you.

Midge was a great person.
Dear Sid, Bonnie & Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Midge was the kindest, most hard-working lady I have ever met. I had the honor of working with Midge for a long time when we worked together at M & B Home care. What fun times we had. How she loved her family. Sid used to drop Midge off at work everyday and pick her up like clock-work. Midge always said how she could always rely on Sid. Her grand-children, Bonnie, Charlie and Nisha (that’s what she always called her) She loved them so much. I remember how much she loved Christmas. She used to start her shopping early so she had everything she wanted for everyone. When you came in to relieve Midge from a shift you always knew you would have nothing left to do because she always had it done. The place was spotless . How she could clean . And the baking and cooking she did for Wayne, Brenda and Marilyn. Midge will always be there for all of you. She is your own special Angel now. She will be remembered fondly by all that knew her. Take Care.
Very sorry to hear this, I enjoyed Midge very much. When she worked in the small option home beside my house we had some great conversations. Her and Wayne used to love sitting out on the front steps talking to the passing people and myself.She was a great person….
