January 6, 1920 – September 15, 2014
Marjorie passed away peacefully September 15, 2014 at The Lodge at Broadmead in Victoria after a brief illness with family at her side.
Predeceased by her parents, her husband Harold, her sister Joan, and her son George. She is lovingly remembered by sisters Dorothy of Duncan and Betty May (Marc) of Sidney, daughters Claudia (Stuart) Hartman and Joan (Stephen) Bennett; seven grandchildren Juli Bennett, Susan (Brent) Kennedy, David (Angela) Hartman, Motion (Sarah) MacIvor, Sarah Crawford (Nathan), Elizabeth Foster (Jeremy), Matthew Bennett; eight great-grandchildren Jamie Bennett, Kalia Bennett, Timoteo Kennedy, Natasha Kennedy, Benjamin Hartman, Luke Hartman, Emma Foster and Elsie Hartman.
Marjorie was born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia. She met Harold in Victoria and they were later married in Red Deer, Alberta where the Army had posted Harold prior to his assignment in England. During Harold’s absence, Marjorie returned to live in Victoria with her parents where their first daughter, Claudia, was born. When Harold returned at war’s end, they relocated to Vancouver. The family then moved to Courtenay where George and Joan were born. After designing and building a home in Comox, she and Harold lived there for fifty years. Marjorie was an avid gardener, seamstress, artist, and soprano.
Her large and loving family will sorely miss Marjorie’s quick wit, generous nature, eye for beauty, and very lovable ways. She now rests with her Lord Jesus Christ and the great promise of salvation given through Him.
A graveside service was held on Friday, September 19th at the Courtenay Civic Cemetery.
