It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Estelle “Marg” Ward on Thursday, September 8th, 2016. Marg was born in Mortlach, SK and received her education there. She married Edward “Ted” Ward on October 6th, 1948 and together they farmed and raised their 3 children in the Mortlach District.
