MARJORIE CHRISTINE BADGER (published on February 14, 2009)

MARJORIE CHRISTINE BADGER (nee WISMER) July 16, 1909 February 8, 2009 On Sunday February 8, 2009, Marjorie Badger passed away simply and quietly, a few months short of her 100th birthday. She leaves to treasure her memory, daughter Andrea, son Bill and daughter-in-law Janie, grandchildren Jim (Leslie), Susan (Graham Robson), Marcy (Charlie Sloan), and great grandchildren Kelsie and Morgan Sloan, Hilary and Paige Robson, and Liam Badger. Marge was predeceased in 2002 by Andrew (Andy) her husband of 65 years. Marge grew up in Saskatoon where she was a member of the provincial women's basketball championship team and enjoyed the distinction of winning a provincial typing contest. Marge and Andy moved to Toronto where they were married and their children were born. They moved to Winnipeg in 1947, where they resided happily for the remainder of their lives. Marge enjoyed playing bridge and was an excellent cook hosting many wonderful gatherings around her dining table. In addition to these homey pursuits, she was active as a Registered Parliamentarian. She was a keen golfer, playing initially at Southwood, then for many years at Niakwa and also Sarasota Golf Country Clubs. Marge continued to play with a very fine swing well into her late 80's and was rightly proud of scoring - not one, but two holes-in-one ! Marge and Andy traveled extensively and, for more than 30 years, enjoyed winters in Sarasota, Florida where they developed many lasting friendships. When the diminishments of ageing began to catch up to them, they were among the first tenants of The Waverley, where they actively participated in many events organized by the staff. Misericordia Place was home for the last two years of her life; a move that Marge met with her characteristic grace and acceptance. Marge was blessed with excellent health and lived a long and vital life, but it was her ability to meet life with quiet engagement that more than anything ensured hers was a happy one. She cherished her family and friends and lived with great dignity. We were very fortunate to have our Mother/Amma in our lives for such a long time; we will miss her deeply and remember her always. A private family memorial will be held to celebrate Marge's life.
