From: Carolyn Graham
Relation: community and family friend

To all of Marie’s family,
I was very saddened to hear the news of Marie’s sudden passing. My connection with Marie goes way back to my grandparents in the 1940’s. When I first began teaching in Lake Cowichan in 1992 she gave me a sincere and hearty welcome which continued throughout the years and was always such an enthusiastic supporter of our school events. Marie was very proud of all of her grandchildren and was often the first one to arrive for school events to cheer them on. I always appreciated her support with Palsson School, especially with my choir/music program and her willingness to lend a helping hand wherever needed and her willingness to volunteer in so many community endeavours. I will miss her boisterous laugh, warm hugs and the honk, honk of her car horn. Sending caring thoughts to all of you. xox Miss Graham

From: Jack & Barb Peake
Relation: Friends

We were privileged to have known Marie for nearly 40 years.
she was the consumate volunteer who would help anyone and was particularly great with food prep for any event or occasion. Marie and I (Jack) often differed on issues but we could discuss easily and just agree to disagree. The community will greatly miss Marie Bergstrom. Can’t imagine Lake Days without Marie.
