Marjorie Keene

It is with great sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Marjorie Keene at Salmon Arm hospital.

Marjorie was predeceased by her husband Lloyd in 2007.

She will be lovingly remembered by her three sons: Jim (Julie), Doug (Mary), Bruce (Catharine), daughter-in-law Dee, youngest sister Nora Dixon, and many nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great grandchildren as well as the residents and staff at Parkside in Chase where she resided for her final years.

Marjorie Stewart was born in Sedgewick, Alberta. She later moved with her family to their new homestead at Last Lake near Brownvale, Alberta. She attended Blue Hawk school and Peace River high school, and later graduating from the McTavish Business college in Edmonton.

She began her business career with the Alberta Dairy Pool in Hardisty, and later the Canadian Bank of Commerce in Berwyn and at various locations in Alberta, then on to Yellowknife where she met her future husband Lloyd. They were married in Edmonton on Sept. 30th 1947.

They resided for a short time in Victoria – where Jim was born, then White Rock and then on to 150 Mile House and Williams Lake where Doug and Bruce were born. They later moved to Dawson Creek, then retiring to Kamloops in 1978 where they spent many happy years on the river. Mom and Dad downsized in 2005 – moving to Chase, where Mom spent the last 3 years at Parkside assisted living.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, November 12, 2016 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, 285 Fortune Drive. Should friends desire, a small donation in Marjorie’s name to the Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge Society, or to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
