It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Marga Berends. Marga passed away yesterday afternoon.
Marga was the essence of kindness, of duty, of genuine humanity. Marga’s joy for life transmitted where ever she had taken her smile and the sparkle in her eyes. Her beauty will never be extinguished from our minds.
Marga was highly valued member of our EAGT team for more than 15 years. We used to call her the heart and brain of EAGT. For many of us she was also a close friend and wonderful colleague.
She kept surprising us by her open and honest attitude, strength and aliveness, and her sense of humor, especially in the recent months when she was facing the relapse. Her way of being in these difficult moments of her life inspired many of us. She will be missed tremendously.
Marga will be lovingly remembered by her husband Geert and her family and friends. And by so many people who had been honored to know her.
Let us keep Marga’s family and friends in our thoughts as they go through most difficult times.
Margas’s funeral will be on Monday August, 6th at 14:00 at Cereshof at Ceresstraat 4A, Stadskanaal.
EAGT will be represented at the funeral by members of the EC.
You are welcome to leave your condolences via email or our facebook page.
We kindly ask you to forward this message to your teams and organizations.
In deep sadness,
