Obituary of Christina Margaret Griese

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Christina Margaret (nee Boldt) at the age of 88 years on Tuesday October 4, 2022, at Groves Park Nursing Home in Renfrew. Beloved wife of Robert (Bob) Griese for 69 Years. Dear Mother of Paul (late Kathryn), Tom (Ann), Alan (Cindy) and Brenda Pilatzke (Don). Loving grandmother of Jason, Rebecca, Michael, Kyle, David (Holly), Rachel, Jeff (Trisha), Heather (Ryan), Chris (Carmelita). Great grandma to Matthew, Fisher, Kaleb, Everett, Ripley and Gideon. Daughter of the late Mack & Florence (nee McIntyre) Boldt. Pre-deceased by siblings Ken (Rita) Boldt, Arnold, Edith (Budd) Smith, Lena (Sy) Windle, Jean (Budd) Crogie. Survived by her brother Bob (Delta) Boldt and sister-in-law Lorna Boldt. Special thanks to Dr Varrin and to the staff at Groves Park Nursing Home for their exceptional care of our mom. As per Margaret’s wishes, a private family service will be held at Union Cemetery in Cobden. Donations in her name made to the Alzheimer’s Society would be greatly appreciated. Margaret's son came across this poem that she had stashed away in her belongings which highlighted her ongoing struggle with Alzheimer's, perhaps long before we recognized it. Here it is in part: (Author unknown) Sometimes I can't remember When I'm standing by the stair If I should be going up for something Or have just come down from there. And before the fridge so often My mind is full of doubt Now did I put some food away Or come to take some out? So, remember I do love you And wished that you lived near And now it's time to post this And say goodbye, my dear. At last, I stand before the post box And my face it sure is red Instead of posting this to you I've opened it instead.
