In life and retirement, Mom enjoyed golfing at the Saskatoon Golf and Country Club, summers spent at White Bear Lake Hilton (Carlyle, SK), winters at Lake Havasu City, AZ, cheering on the Blue Jays and Roughriders and taking a variety of evening classes for enjoyment. Time with friends, family and her grandchildren was always precious.
She is survived by sons, Clif (Peggy), Gary (Kim) and daughter, Lynne; grandchildren, Kari, Brady (Roxane), Ryan (Jen), Kyle (Kristen), Claire (Zach) and Sydney. She was blessed with 10 great-grandchildren. Marjorie is survived by loving nieces and nephews and their families in addition to life-long friends.
