Marjorie was a caring, kind lady who in an unassuming yet profound way touched the lives of many friends and family. Her belief in the goodness of others and always looking on the bright side of life left her with a smile that brightened us all even in her dying hours. Marjorie moved from Newfoundland to North Sydney in 1957 and provided complimentary Bed and Breakfast to all her relatives and friends and any others that might be travelling to and from her native province. She was well known for her delicious cooking and baking. Everybody marveled at her ability to cater a meal to unexpected guests that might arrive at the magic dinner hour.
On Ingraham Street in North Sydney, where she lived for many years before moving to the seniors' complex she was fondly called Aunt Margy by all the neighborhood children. They loved her home-made cookies and she treated each one like family. She worked very hard in her life, overcoming many obstacles, but always made sure that "Jack", the love of her life took priority and was taken care of. For a number of years before his death in 2004 he was able to reciprocate that same dedication to her as she lived with dementia. However in earlier retirement years they both enjoyed many exciting card games and other activities, always together. And together they moved into the Northside Community Guest Home in December 2001. Marjorie has since received all the love and affection from the staff there that she so freely gave to others over the years. Her family wishes to make special acknowledgement of this special gift that never went unnoticed and will always be treasured.
Marjorie was a devoted member of St. John the Baptist Anglican Church. In her earlier years she enjoyed the Altar Guild, ACW and other church functions.
