    It is with sadness that I learned just yesterday, February 12, of Marjory’s death. I met Marjory in 1968 when my husband and I moved to Calgary. Marjory and I worked together as Public Health Nurses at the North Hill Clinic for 4 years. We continued our friendship these many years and met up a few times. I’m so glad I had two phone visits with her during her final illness. The entire family have my sincere sympathy in the loss of Marjory.
