October 30, 1923 – January 2, 2021

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of their mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and best friend. Marjorie passed away peacefully in her sleep at the Deer Lodge Centre on January 2, 2021, at the age of 97.

She was predeceased by her husband of 68 years, Russell (Logie) Johnson in 2016, her parents William and Nellie Price, her brother Harold and sister Betty.

Left to mourn Marge’s passing are her three sons: Bruce (Janet), Jim (Claire), William (Mariola), grandchildren: Geoffrey (Christelle), Graham (Morgan), Heather (Ros), Ben (Megan), Chigal, Alex (Lacey), Cole, great grandchildren: Reynelda, Alexis and Axel. Her niece Carolyn (Lionel) and family, her nephew Bob (Sandy), Keith, and close friends Syl and Linda, Rose, Ed and Meryl, will miss her dearly.

Marge was born in Minnedosa, Manitoba on October 30, 1923. She had a happy childhood, making friends easily with her bright disposition. She would meet her best friend and the love of her life, Logie in grade school. They married in 1948 and began a life of 68 wonderful years together, raising three boys, becoming proud grandparents to seven wonderful grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.

Marge and Logie enjoyed travelling. They visited picturesque destinations like Hawaii, Australia, Fiji, Spain, Switzerland, Columbia, Mexico, Caribbean Islands and finally settling down to one sunny spot in Weslaco, Texas, as Winter Texans for a span of 23 years.

Marge had a great love for crafts, she would fill her spare time crocheting, Swedish weaving and knitting. She loved gardening but as she aged, she was halted in her passions by many ailments.

As the years went on and her physical abilities continued to decline, she required more assistance. She subsequently moved to the Deer Lodge Centre, where she spent her last years with new hobbies, playing cards and reading books. She continued to make new friends, who would take Marge under their wing. They included her in their family card games and would bring her home baking and books to read.   Marge’s family is ever grateful for their unconditional friendship.

Towards the end, Marge admitted she was ready and looking forward to joining her beloved Logie. Although we will all miss her dearly, we know she is now in a better, happier, and painless place, with her best friend by her side.

The family would like to thank the staff of Deer Lodge Centre Tower 4 and Tower 6, for their kindness and the loving care provided to our mother.

Due to the current health restrictions a private family remembrance will occur at a later date. As per her wishes, interment will take place at the Kildonan Presbyterian Cemetery.

Mom, you will always and forever be in our hearts, Rest in Peace.
