Marge was predeceased by father, Wilson 1964, husband, Bob Vibert 1990, sister, Linda Jorgenson 2001, mother, Pat McCabe 2009, brother-in-law, Bev Jorgenson 2014, brother, Neil McCabe 2017, sister-in-law, Dianne Unger 2017.

Marge was born in Asquith and grew up on the family dairy farm at Asquith. Marge was a farm girl, she could handle a team of horses, operate the various machinery, milk cows, as well as what was then called “women’s work”. She attended Hawoods School, a one-room school house, 1-1/2 miles from home. Marge also attended Asquith High School. She achieved her certificate from the Saskatoon Business College and went on to work at the University of Saskatchewan at the Physical Plant where she retired from after 32 years of service as Head Accounting Clerk. Marge met her husband, Bob Vibert, there and they were married in 1972. They moved into their bungalow on Tenth Street that year. Their house was, for decades, the family gathering place for Christmas, summer barbeques and everything else. It was there that she practiced her passion for gardening, vegetables, fruits, and flowers that bloomed throughout the season. When our mother’s dementia began to worsen, Marge was the family leader that helped to ensure our Mom was able to stay in her home as long as possible. You always knew where you stood with Marge, not one to pull punches or be coy, if you needed advice, straight from the heart, coloured only by a clear sense of right and wrong, you got it. She shared her mother’s sense of diplomacy and fair play and her father’s timing and delivery. Marge faced her impending death pragmatically and with great courage, with her family foremost, she showed her love in everything she did. Marge will be forever remembered in our thoughts and our good deeds. A Memorial Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 8 at Windsor Chapel (704 Windsor Street). Arrangements are in care of John Schachtel - Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
