SNAITH, Marjorie Katherine

June 30, 1943 – December 10, 2012

It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marjorie Snaith, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, friend, sister, and aunt. Marjorie lost her battle with cancer on Monday, December 10, 2012 and passed away peacefully at the Agape Hospice, surrounded by her friends and family.

Marjorie was an astute business woman who started her career in real estate, and opened the partnership of M&M Bond Realty followed by Calstar Realty. Because Marjorie enjoyed giving back to her community, she soon became passionately involved in the formation of the Diabetes Association (Foothills) where she functioned as Executive Director for over 19 years. In her spare time, Marjorie loved to play golf, a good game of cards, and simply hanging out in her kitchen baking fresh bread and cinnamon buns. Marjorie will always be remembered by her warm smile, stunning blue/green eyes, and upbeat personality. The family is happy that Marjorie is at peace, but she will always be missed.

Marjorie is survived by her beloved husband, Marvin (Bud); her son, Ty (Sue) Snaith; her daughter, Karen (Gordon) Bandy; her five grandchildren, Mitchell, Stephanie, Mason, Nicholas and Logan; her sisters, Helen, Julie, Laurie, Marie, and Glenda (Rick) Lyons; her brothers, Lloyd, Brian and Gary; her nieces and nephews; and her loving dog, Max. She was predeceased by her parents, John and Teckla; her brothers, Johnny, Ben and Tom; and her sister, Lyla.

A Celebration of Marjorie’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Friday, December 14, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through If friends so desire, please send all donations to the Salvation Army Agape Hospice (1302 – 8 Avenue N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1B8 Telephone: (403) 282-6588). Our special thanks to all of the staff at the Agape Hospice and to all of the doctors who have cared for Marjorie over the past few years.

In living memory of Marjorie Snaith, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

  3. Dear Bud, Ty & Sue and family, Karen & Gord and family;
    My heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow. I know how deeply you and Marjorie all loved each other and her passing has left an empty space in your family. She always spoke so highly of all of you and was proud of what you had accomplished and the way you lived your lives. Marjorie was a wonderful friend, kind and thoughtful, always fun to be with and a person of great integrity. I spent some of the best years of my life working with her and I will always cherish her friendship. My life was enriched by having known her. Marjorie spent most of her life helping others and I was always in awe of how hard she worked and how selfless she was. She always strived to give her best and lived her life with grace and dignity. I pray that your memories of her will help sustain you throughout your lives. May God comfort and strengthen you and help you through this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. Dear Bud and family,
    I am proud to have had the opportunity to know Marjorie through work with Diabetes Foothills. With Marjorie there was never any ambiguity – you always knew where her values and her where her heart was. Her dedication, devotion and tenacity is a combination that was impossible to replace. Everyone who had the opportunity to work with Marjorie on a project came away with a strong role model combining values, ethics with a sense of humor. She will be missed.

  5. I was so saddened at the news a few years ago that Marjorie was ill. I have a heavy heart now that she is gone but I am relieved that she is resting in peace. I absolutely loved working with Marjorie and she was a very strong influence in creating my desire to work with non-profit organizations. She has a beautiful soul and I will always have the fondest memories of her.
