Marjorie Anne Thorpe
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Marjorie on Feb. 20, 2015 at her Comox home.
She was predeceased by her parents, Alex and Ina McCuish and her husband Conrad (Sonny) Thorpe.
Marjorie is survived by her sister Renee Lidster (Joe), brother Jack McCuish (Sheila) and step-son, Noel Thorpe (Erminia) and their children, nieces Karen, Susan (Rod), Jennifer (Matt), nephews Jay, Scott, Colin, great nephews Robert, Luke, Reid, Justice, great nieces Sandra (Tony), Jennifer (Lee), Katie (James), great-great nephew Willy, and great-great niece Alexandra. She is also survived by cousins Bruce and Beverly (John).
Marjorie valued her special friendships with her sister Renee and childhood school friends Kathy, Sheila, Margaret. The five special friends spent their summers on Bowen Island and continued to celebrate reunions each year. Marjorie worked for BC Tel., then began her long career with CP Air and eventually Air Canada for several years. After retirement, Marjorie volunteered at the Courtenay District Museum for 22 years, Order Eastern Star 14 years, and Air Canada Pionairs for 14 years. Marjorie also rescued countless cats and was a faithful friend to the SPCA. Marjorie will be missed by all her two and four-legged family and friends who loved her dearly.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Marjorie at the Courtenay Museum and Paleontology Centre, 207 – 4th Street, Courtenay from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 11, 2015. In lieu of flowers, donations to the SPCA would be appreciated.
