To Murray and family,

I don't know if you will remember me Murray, I am Margaret Mills (nee Zimmerman). With my brothers Bob (near Elm Creek, Alex (in Victoria B.C, and Neil (recently moved with his wife to Niagara Peninsula, ON, as well as my sister Ann Pedersen (recently moved into Winnipeg from their longtime home in Springstein Mb.) we send our fond remembrances of Aunt Dorothy. Our Mum was Myrtle Zimmerman who passed away in 2011 and grandmother was Ida Murdoch, your Grandma Myrtle's sister.

I hadn't been in contact with your Mum for some years ( Xmas cards til a few years ago), but certainly remember many visits when I was young, and of course Janice and I were good friends as well as cousins since we were close in age.
I recall many times with Janice at your Grandma's home in Winnipeg, and how much fun we had together as kids. It always felt so good to be part of such a large extended family and I remember how much your Grandma Myrtle loved to hold those huge family get togethers!

I think that the last time I saw your Mum was at Janice's funeral and marvelled at how well she managed.

I live in Headingley, and can always be reached through email, in case you ever want to contact me

With All Very Best Regards to you all,

Margaret Mills

Murray and family and ALL the Brown and Cooper Family ! What a wonderful long life ! I had the privilege of having Mrs Brown as my grade ten Math and Science teacher , and guess what ? She failed ME ! She often talked of her family and little did I know back then , that I would have married into her Cooper Clan !

Just imagine, 105 years of age!! The changes she must have seen and overcome throughout her life! I can only imagine all of the words of wisdom that she shared with all of your families, and the memories that each of you will have. A blessed, long life she had.
