Marjorie’s first years were spent on a farm in northeastern Saskatchewan. The farm and its quiet, calm, and beauty remain in her heart. In some sense, she will always consider the farm as home. Her family moved to Windsor, Ontario where she attended high school and university, earning a M.A. in Canadian History.
Over 40 years ago, Marjorie and Stephen married and moved to Calgary. After a few years at home with her daughter and son, writing, volunteering and leading courses, she worked on an Education degree and taught for the Calgary Catholic School Board. She loved it!
What is really important for Marjorie? Trying to understand and follow God’s will for her, marriage, family, friends, learning, nature, and truth. She loves reading and has been volunteering all her life. In the church, she has served in education; on Parish Council, as a lector and Eucharistic Minister, and on R.C.I.A.
Marjorie has been a member of the Catholic Women’s League since 1995. She has filled the positions of Spiritual Chair, Secretary, President (5 years), and Past President. She feels blessed to have served on Diocesan Council as Spiritual Development Chair and Vice President from 2017-2019.
Marjorie is pleased to serve on Diocesan Council for a second term; this time as Christian Family Life Chair. She wants to stress the “Christian” aspect; the faith underpinnings in all that we do. She also hopes to focus on “Evangelizing” in our family life service contributions to others. She prays for guidance to be led by the Holy Spirit in all that she does serving God and the Catholic Women’s League.
