Marjorie Elvira Owens, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, aunt and cherished friend passed away on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at the age of 91. She will be greatly missed by all those who were touched by her tremendous capacity for love, generosity, courage, cheerfulness, humility and hard work. Marge was born on April 11, 1921 to Marion and Ed Richardson in Forestburg, Alberta. She moved with her husband and children to British Columbia in 1951. The family settled in on 176th Street where Marge resided happily for more than 40 years. Her family expanded at that time to include the neighboring Nelson clan with whom Marge remained close until the time of her death. Marge is survived by her daughters Charlotte Dunn, Evelyn Reeder and Marilyn Owens, grandchildren Larry, Lisa, Heather, Kathie, Erin, Blaine, Kelly, Joel, Shea, Nicole, Noel, Nathan, Robbin, Craig and Charlene as well as numerous great grandchildren and her first great-great grandchild. She was also looking forward to the birth of her second great-great grandchild, due in April. Marge is reunited in death with her husband Richard Owens and, the companion of her later years, husband Lloyd Mayo along with her sons, Richard, Earl, Fred and Robert, daughter Pearl and great granddaughter Brittney. A celebration of her life will be held in April 2013. In Lieu of flowers please donate to the Alzheimer’s Society (www.alzheimer.ca) or the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca).
