HERRING – Marjorie Ethel (nee Harman)

May 29, 1921 – May 3, 2010

It is with great sadness that the family of Marjorie Herring announces her passing in Calgary on Monday, May 3, 2010 at the age of 88 years.

Marjorie was born in Montreal on May 29, 1921 and spent the early part of her life there until moving to Calgary in 1975. Marjorie was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother with her own unique ability to spread love and joy to family, friends and neighbours. She was an avid Stampeders and Flames fan. Marjorie was always happiest when her whole family was around her.

Marjorie is survived by her two sons and daughters-in-law, Robert and Randi of Calgary and Glen and Ann of Oakville, ON; and two grandsons, Graham and Stephen, both of Calgary. She is also survived by two of her eight brothers and sisters, George (Jean) Harman of Calgary and Muriel Staley of Oakville. She was predeceased in 1999 by her husband Robert and in 2009 by her daughter Patricia.

A celebration of Marjorie’s life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Saturday, May 8, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the charity of the donor’s choice.

In living memory of Marjorie Herring, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    I wish to express my sympathy to the family of Marjorie and her brother George and sister Muriel. Although it may be more than 50 years since I last saw Marjorie I still recognized her smiling face immediately. My sister Myrtle Stewart Nimmo May 29,1921 – May 29, 2000 shared the same birthday.

    Sincerely,
    Don Stewart

    Marjorie was a dear friend of my mom, Doris Clark, at the Canyon Meadows Retirement Home. At my mom’s recent passing, Marjorie sent me a lovely card & note recalling their conversations, their laughs at the dinner table, & the cheering on of their favorite sports teams.
    My sympathy to your family. I know she will be greatly missed. I will remember her as a lovely, kind lady & good friend to my Mom.

    I will miss Auntie Margie, her beautiful smiling face, warm tight hugs and especially her sense of humour and genuine laugh.

    I received a beautiful picture last year of Auntie Marge and Donna which is hanging on my office wall just above my computer…. her happy face makes me smile each morning when I get into work…. its those sparkling eyes,…. wondering what’s she up to….

    Love and Tight Hugs to my cousins,
    Darlene
