Marjorie Morris

June 22, 1925 - January 22, 2016


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Marjorie. Predeceased by her husband Desmond in 2011. Dearly loved by her children Michael (Diana), Patrick (Grace), Donald (Linda), Steven, Katherine (Jeremy), Teresa (Archie) and Rachel (Kevin). Marjorie had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren Eric, Jason, Kirsten, Lisa, Jeffrey, Maggie, Emmy, Farley and Ronan as well as several great grandchildren. Marjorie was born in Vancouver to a prominent pioneer family who helped shape the city. She was an only child and looked forward to a house full of children when she married. She met Desmond in 1944. They married and moved to Port Alice where they spent 19 years. It was here that Marjorie, Desmond and their growing family spent many happy hours cruising Quatsino Sound in their 24 foot boat, “The Skipper”. They then moved to the Cowichan Valley where they settled for good. Marjorie was an avid reader and she took great pleasure in maintaining a beautiful garden that she and Des designed. She loved animals, especially her dogs. Marjorie deeply enjoyed her island life, so she and Des built a cabin on South Pender Island where they spent many lazy summers and took long rambles on the local beaches with their dogs. Marjorie was a long-standing member of the United Church and had an interest in social justice, politics and the environment. She always had time for her family and friends and made her home a joyful gathering place for many celebrations where everyone was welcomed. She will be deeply missed.


A Celebration of Marjorie’s Life will be held at the Duncan United Church on January 29, 2016 at 1:00 PM. Donations may be made to the Cowichan SPCA or the Land Conservancy.

I only knew Mrs. Morris for a few months working in her garden this past summer. She was very kind to me and was a pleasure to work for. I only hope I am as sharp, pleasant and witty as she was at her age and able to work in the garden for as long as she did. A true gardener. My thoughts are with her family for their loss. My condolences.
