I was so sorry to discover Magdeleine's passing. I always hoped I'd cross paths with her in Westmount, as we sometimes did. I am surrounded by art she introduced me to and which will always bring her to my mind. I am grateful for what i learned from her and the lovely times we had together through the years.

De la haut elle veillera sur vous tous! Yvon

We will miss Magdeleine in Murray Bay. She was a force for art and beauty in the world, and some joy has gone out of our summer, being without her. Most sincere condolences to her family from the Lancaster/Muckenfuss family, Chevy Chase, Maryland.

I met Magdeleine when I was 23 years old. She was a mentor to me and to many other artists. Her support was unconditional and her enthusiasm for life contagious. We remained close friends over all those years, enjoying her hospitality both in Montreal and La Malbaie. My husband Marc joins me in saying that she will never be forgotten.
