Tod, Jane, Roseanne, Lorraine, Jackie:
Sending our sincere condolences to all of you and your families in the passing of your Mom.
I have fond memories of Aunt Marj, and tremendous respect for the brilliant life she led and legacy she leaves. A loving wife – mother – grandmother, but also an astute businesswoman, ahead of her time, who contributed greatly to the success of the family business with her accounting and office management knowledge and skills. If that wasn’t challenging enough (keeping the five of you in line at home and trying to keep Uncle Tom and Barney in line at work), she also had time to tend to one of the nicest gardens on Queen street and volunteer her service to the community.
I will remember her brilliant mind – that keen memory for interesting facts, (family) history, and hobby of restoring old artifacts. I also remember her for her patience and calm demeanor, how accepting she was of Tom’s frolics, Jackie’s ongoing zookeeping, and her kids’ teenage antics. She was a true leader, teacher, and business person and leaves behind an amazing legacy in all of you, her grandchildren, the solid foundation she laid at McGoey Insurance, and the lives she touched in the community.

Tod, MaryJane, Lorraine, Rosanne, and Jackie –
Each one of you is a reflection of your Mom’s love and dedication. I am thinking of you during this difficult time.
It was a blessing for me to witness you all together in love and support for your Mom.
Marjorie truly was a special lady and she carried quite proudly the era in which she was brought up in – which means her top priority was family, fun, enjoying the simply things in life but also possessing a strong work ethic and love of community and care of people.
I will always remember her smile and I was pleased to assist her in the early days of her residing at The Village and then later at The Manor.

To a life well lived, we were always welcomed to the house, the cottage, the table, the family. Our memories of Marje were some of the happiest of our life, she was Mrs Cleaver in the flesh, always steering the ship. A quick wit, loved a joke, always immaculate, and above all, a devoted mother and wife, she certainly loved life and lived it to the fullest. You will be truly missed and always loved.
