Marjorie Canning

February 19, 1924 - September 15, 2015


With great sadness we announce that Marjorie Canning passed away Sept. 15th surrounded by her loving family.  Marjorie was predeceased by her first husband Bill Morris, her second husband Frank Canning and her son Geoffrey Morris.

Marjorie will be deeply missed by her daughter Krista (Glyn), daughter-in-law Bella, step daughter & sons Linda (Terry), Wayne (Linda), Art. Grandchildren Nicola (Todd), Glyn (Tina), Keith (Mark), Mark (Adrienne), Carol (Paul), Geoffrey, Millie (Jim) Angela (Wayne), Frank (Chantel). Great-grandchildren Ethan, Logan, Kaitlyn, Abbi, Mackenzie, Brett, Missy, Evan & Caelen.  Great-great-grandchild Cheyla.

Marjorie was born in Liverpool, England. She met and married Bill Morris in 1942 and they emigrated to Canada in 1976. After Bill died she met and married another wonderful man, Frank Canning.  She was a very loving and caring woman who was very proud of her family and was always there for them. She had a great sense of humour and will be remembered fondly by everyone, especially for giving “fisherman’s friends” to anyone who coughed!

There will never be a better mum, grandma or friend anywhere in this world.  Goodnight & God Bless until we all meet again.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Thompson and Dr. Pullan for their warm and compassionate care of Marjorie. Also, thank you to the nurses on 2nd floor south at CDH for their wonderful care, which helped us through a very difficult time.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 26th at 2:00 p.m. at HW Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan. In lieu of flowers please consider donations in her honour to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Cowichan SPCA.
