  4. It is with great sadness that I must inform all OPFA members of the passing of a great volunteer during the Markham Chapter days – MARG (WALTERS) SIMPSON has left us – she and I worked tirelessly along with Mary Devlin in Markham Chapter events during the late 80’s/ 90’s – Marg lost her fight with Alzheimer’s and she died just a few short weeks after her husband “Ted Simpson”. Please pass along the information she will be resting at Dixon/Garland F.H. in Markham on Friday – no word yet on when the service will be.
    May she rest in peace and dance on forever with the angels.
    Regards, Linda Jones
