Marjorie FARNHAM

FARNHAM Marjorie (nee Ball) It all began in Stettler, Alberta when a 3 lb baby girl named Marjorie was born to Joe and Lena Ball. Marjorie was so tiny she could fit into a shoe box. Memories as a child of the dust storms on the prairies and the hardships of helping her blind father with the farm and orchard. Marjorie was predeceased by her mother, father and brother Alfred Kitson. While working at the Botha Store, Marjorie met and married her husband Wayne. They started their life together in Stettler and shortly after moved to Forbisher, Saskatchewan. They decided that was not the place for them so they moved to the Rimbey Trailer Park but ended up settling in the Faraway District. The oil and gas industry steered the family of three daughters to communities in northern Alberta and British Columbia. Home was where work was and along the way Marjorie was blessed with many life long friends. Marjorie embraced many activities such as curling bonspeils, weddings and graduations. There were always fishing trips, group camps, family functions and sport events. Marjorie always delighted in travel to Kansas, California, Hawaii, and several trips to Mexico to bring home souvenirs. In recent years Marjorie made many new friends with her loyal companion by her side on the scooter. Marjorie's new friends always enjoyed visiting with her and Charlie.
