August 18, 1936 - July 3, 2018
Mom passed away peacefully July 3, 2018 at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden surrounded by her loving family. She was born August 18, 1936 to William and Lucienne Holliston in Altamont, MB. She married the love of her life and best friend, Donald, on January 31, 1953.
They made a few stops before settling in Thompson, MB where they raised their family of seven. Mom was an avid curler, bowler, and Master Angler. Mom loved to knit, quilt and sew, turning a piece of fabric into something beautiful. Mom made quilts for the people she loved, so no matter how far away you were, you could wrap yourself in a hug from her.
She loved word games and card games, especially for the conversation and camaraderie that went along with that. Mom had an artistic side that she was able to use in her employment at Plaza Florists in Thompson and at the Co-op Florists in Portage La Prairie, MB. Mom also worked at Sears in both Thompson and Portage.
Mom leaves to mourn her husband of 65 years, Donald, children Rick (Thérèse), daughter-in-law Nancy (widow of Randy), Lori (Chris), Kathy (Roger), Marion (Clancy), Terry (David), and Janice. She also leaves behind 18 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren, brother Keith, sister-in-law Norma, brother-in-law Ron and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents William and Lucienne, sister Marion, son Randy, grandson Dylan, sister-in-law Lorna, sister-in-law Marjorie and brother-in-law Bob.
Memorial Mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church, 635 Tranquille Rd., Kamloops BC, on July 11, 2018 at 11:00 AM. Luncheon will follow at the OLPH hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice, The RIH Cancer Clinic or the ALS society of BC and Yukon.
