    We would like to thank the St. Paul Elder Service nursing staff for the kind and compassionate care of our wife and mother, Marguerite. The spiritual support and loving care of Sister Joy, Sister Dorothy, and Sister Lois Ann were deeply appreciated as was the thoughtfulness of Ellen of St. Paul Hospice. We will always remember all the very special care and kindness given to Marguerite and our family. A memorial has been established.
