Marge was a truly wonderful woman and a great friend for many years. She was proud of her family who she loved dearly. She had the best sense of humour and we enjoyed many stories and laughs in her company.
We loved her and will miss her very much. We offer our sincerest condolences to her family.

Always ‘Auntie Marge’ to me!
She was a great gal!
My heart goes out to the family,
My memories of Mrs. Waters are, first and foremost, what a classy lady she was. My first day on the job (May 7, 2001), at CHUM 1331 Yonge St., was the day that 1050 CHUM AM changed format to The TEAM, Sportstalk Radio. Mrs. Waters was one of the first people I met that day and I immediately felt the warmth of her welcome. There was a BBQ and celebration in the parking lot behind the building that day. Mr and Mrs Waters danced to the last tune that 1050 played as a music station. I watched as everyone wiped the tears from their eyes and knew then that I had come to work at a very special place. Two weeks later, walking down the hall towards my office, I passed her on the way to hers and she greeted me with, “Good Morning, Mary! How are you today?” And I was amazed that with everything that happened that day, she had remembered my name! She was a marvel!
There are plenty of fond memories but to me this one stands out most and says so much about Mrs. Waters and the family: I was leaning against a wall just outside the second floor boardroom at 1331 as a meeting of staff was coming to an end. Mrs. Waters went out of her way to come over and say hello. But what she really wanted was to personally meet the young person standing next to me, someone she didn't recognize. He was a visiting college student. Mrs. Waters greeted him warmly, welcomed him to the station, chatted for a few minutes and left him feeling like he was part of the CHUM family. Pure class.
One of the remarkable ladies I was priviledged to know. The entire Waters family brought a new class to radio with their CHUM empire. Bless You, Marg....you will be missed.
Yours in great music
