Loving aunt of Geoff,(Jacey) Sarah, Cathy (Denis) Gerald (Anita) Stephen (Carol) Dennis (Patti). She was predeceased by her son Tom (2012) and her granddaughter Caitlin (2017)

Marjorie was President of Sarnia Cranes. As our family matriarch she exuded quiet grace & dignity and provided valuable wisdom during both joyful and challenging times. She embodied integrity & resilience and taught us the value of strong family bonds. Marjorie was truly a remarkable woman who embraced life with a contagious enthusiasm, inspiring others and having a positive impact on their lives. She enjoyed many passions that brought joy to her life, including travels around the world, golf, volunteering and giving generously to causes close to her heart.

We find solace in the knowledge that she is now at peace. We extend our deepest gratitude to all those who have offered their support and condolences. Special thanks to Dr John O'Mahony, Cathy La Pointe, Mandy Smith and all of the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers of St Joseph's Hospice
