MARJORIE PRICE (published on June 23, 2010)

MARJORIE PRICE Peacefully, after a brief illness, Marjorie Price passed away at Grace Hospital in Winnipeg, MB on June 19, 2010 at the age of 97 years. Marjorie was born February 6, 1913 in Winnipeg, a city she loved dearly. Much of her formative years were spent at the family residence on Scott Street, where family activities abounded with no shortage of entertainment to be found by various family members. Her involvement in various outdoor activities such as cross-country skiing, and skating brought her endless hours of enjoyment. Marjorie attended Kelvin High School, where she was actively involved in many activities. After high school, Marjorie was employed at various businesses in Winnipeg. One of her proudest responsibilities was her employment with the Department of National Defense manufacturing aircraft for the war effort. After the war, Marjorie gained employment with the Canadian Government in the Taxation Department. Marjorie enjoyed travel to various world destinations, culminating with her trip to Hong Kong in 1986. Some of her fondest memories were of her time spent with the family at Gull Lake, MB. This time was especially cherished by all family members. Marjorie's devotion to all people around her was significant, and much appreciated. She loved sports of all kinds, especially the Blue Bombers. Anytime the West would beat the East in a Grey Cup game was when everything was right in the world. Her eyes would light up whenever she had the chance to talk about her great-nephews accomplishments with whoever was within earshot. Marjorie is survived by sister-in-law Adeline Price, as well as nephew Tom Price, his wife Mlee, and their sons, Taylor and Tanner. She was predeceased by her parents, George and Sara Price, brothers Edward (Grace), Frederick, Harry (Adeline), sisters Uretta Malcolm, Celestine (Alec) Hook, and Helen (Cecil) Cavanagh. A private graveside ceremony will be held at Elmwood Cemetery on June 24, 2010 with a time of fellowship to commence in the main foyer of 430 Webb Place at 3:00 p.m. Donations in memory of Marjorie can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Autism Society of Canada, Manitoba Special Olympics or any other charity of your choice.
