MARJORIE OLIVE CANTIN
passing of our beloved mother and
Born in the Glen Adelaide District in
Saskatchewan, Marjorie was the oldest child of the Harvey and Alice Hancock family. Marjorie was predeceased by her parents, her brothers, Bob, Bill and Noel, her sister Eleanor, her husband Albert and her son
Marjorie is survived by her sisters, Nora, Barb (Brian), her brother Rick (Brenda), her children, Donna (Stephen), Ariel, Gerry (Donalyn) and Richard (Lesley), along with her grandchildren, Kristina (Caleb), Alec, Alanna, Shea (Rob), Jackson, Wyatt and Max.
Those of you who knew Marjorie know her two biggest loves were sports (especially
curling, tennis, baseball and The Winnipeg Blue Bombers) and her family. She absolutely dedicated her entire life to being the
absolutely best wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter and grandmother she could be to all of her family.
We'd like to wish a special thank you to the staff of the West Shore Laylum long term care home for their dedicated care of our
Mother over her final months.
Flowers are gratefully declined, but if you wish a donation to a charity of your choice in the name of Marjorie Cantin would be
appreciated by the family.
A time to celebrate the life of Marjorie has not yet been chosen, but this will be
announced as soon as this date, time and place is set.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
While it has been many years since I have seen Madge, I will always remember her kindness and welcoming nature. Whenever I would visit Donna at their home, she always made me feel like one of the family. (To the extent of very much including me in the discussion when, perhaps, Donna and my combined decision on a chosen activity was a bit questionable. Which my parents appreciated, as they knew I was in good hands at the Cantin home.) I distinctly recall her comforting me through some homesickness during an extended summer visit to Saskatoon, and making David solemnly promise to drive responsibly before the two of us set out for our journey back to Manitoba. (This was after David suggested he just needed a brick to act as his version of cruise control for the trip.) Her love for her family was obvious, and she extended that feeling to others as well. My condolences to the whole family. May her memories be a blessing. - Posted by: Donna Gingera (Friend of the family) on: Nov 21, 2020
