Marjorie enjoyed spending her younger years working at resorts in Nestor Falls, Ont., until she married the love of her life Howard on August 6, 1971. Marjorie and Howard then settled in North Branch and took over the Haw Family Farm. There they raised Neil and Nicole in the community that she loved and cherished.

The bond that she shared with her grandchildren was something to be admired. She was so proud of all their accomplishments. She was always such an involved parent and grandparent. Her children and grandchildren were gifted with many of her handmade beautiful quilts that they will love and cherish forever.

Marjorie had a passion for flowers, gardens, birds, farming and quilting. Their yard was always immaculate and beautiful. Her time spent with her quilting friends was special to her. She had many good friends that meant the world to her and enjoyed their visits. Marjorie enjoyed traveling to Las Vegas, Mexico, Arizona and Dominican Republic. She was hard working, loved to laugh and had a zest for life.

A celebration of life was held Tuesday, August 8, at 11:00 a.m. at the Stratton Community Centre, Stratton, Ont. Interment will follow at a later date at the Pineridge Cemetery.
