May 16, 1956 – September 30, 2007
Marj passed away suddenly at her home. She was predeceased by her parents Phil and Bill. She is survived by her brothers Grant (Anne), Ron (Beth), Dan (Julie), Matt (Penny); sister Cathy (Peter); cousin Steve and “dog” Herc; adored nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; many cousins, aunts and uncles and her good friend Cathie.
Marj was raised in Comox, finished high school at G.P. Vanier, trained as a cook at Malaspina, worked at local restaurants before moving to Whistler where she managed a private ski lodge for 10 years. Her last years were spent looking after her mother and the family home.
She was an avid quilter and a devoted aunt who often took groups of nieces and nephews on holidays. As a member of the Currie Ladies Planning Board, Marj could organize a good “bun throw” at the drop of a spoon.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to a charity of your choice or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2007 at 1:00 pm at the Lower Native Sons Hall.
