    Sorry to hear of Marjories passing. I was driving by the nursing home on Dec. 10 and stopped to visit with her. I was very saddened seeing her condition then and knew she didn’t have too much time left. Over the years our family looked forward to Marjorie’s visits to Scotsburn and thoroughly enjoyed her company. Some of us were astounded that she would make the trip herself driving Jon’s 1967 Ford. She was a wonderful lady.
    Sincere sympathy to you all.

    Sincerely, Danny & Shirley

    How lucky we were to have Marjorie in our lives. She was one very special lady. A visit with Marjorie was a history lesson – whether the topic was her world travels or genealogy, we always left with a sense of amazement and just a little bit smarter than when we arrived!! Our two boys have great memories of a Red Sox game we all attended together. The adventure of getting to the baseball park was as good as the game! You would never need GPS when you traveled with Marjorie because the back alleys she traveled would never show up on any map. She was one of a kind and we all looked forward to her visits in Nova Scotia.

    I will miss you Aunt Marjorie. I consider her my other grand-mother who was always there to celebrate our life successes. She was always happy to see you and eager to share her research of the family history. She corresponded with her many friends and relatives and traveled the world. Her business sense, her independence, her kind demeanor and her wisdom inspired me in countless ways. Everyone who knew her loved her and always had a kind word. She epitomized leaving a positive feeling with everyone she encountered and making the world a better place for her being a part of it. She was ahead of her time in recycling and repurposing and didn’t like to waste anything. She was generous and kind to everyone. She is in a much better place and heaven is much better for her being in it. I love you Aunt Marjorie.
