It is with great sadness that we learned of Margie’s mother’s death, Rhona Wurtele, a few days ago. According to her obituary below, Rhona expressed her wish that your sympathy be extended in the form of a donation to the Saint Mark’s Arts Project in Acton Vale. Thank you for your support.
“My amazing Mom died a few days shy of her 98th birthday, a birthday she would have celebrated with her beloved identical twin sister Rhoda.
Grace Rhona Wurtele Gillis was a fierce and graceful woman, passionate, and excelling in all sports, especially skiing. She was independent and strong, a single mother devoted to her 4 children. She was generous and caring. She was “No Limits”. She loved flowers and gardening: I do believe Nature was her “God”. There are so many stories. And I am so grateful and proud to be her daughter. She is woven with love into my very fibre.” – Margie Gillis
