Marjorie loved spending time outside with her flowers and in her garden. She greatly enjoyed animals, especially the Clydesdale horses and so she made sure to go watch them at every fair or rodeo she could. She had a great passion for country music and went to numerous concerts to watch all her favourites. Marj loved baking and made some of the best pies, cheesecakes, cinnamon buns and tarts that most of us have ever ate. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and there was never a time that when one of us visited her she didn't have many goodies waiting for us. She loved to read and knit in her spare time and would sit in her chair for hours with CMT playing in the background. One of her favourite treats was a banana split and she enjoyed going out for one with her friend Liz. Grandma also enjoyed her trips to the Shooting Star with her friends Liz, Ruth and her sister Hazel and always came back with wonderful stories to share.

A funeral service was held in the Elm Creek Community Hall. Memorial donations may be made in her honour to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3L 0K6.
