June 22, 1930 - February 21, 2023

Marjorie Isabell Tait (nee Greaves) passed away on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at Riverdale Personal Care Home.
Marjorie was born in Morton Municipality on June 22, 1930 and attended Desford School. She worked at Harold’s Café in Boissevain until she married Leonard Tait on August 1, 1951.
Marjorie was a member at St. Paul’s United Church in Boissevain, part of the Red Cross, Tops and a 4-H Leader. She enjoyed crafts, sewing, children’s activities and babysitting grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also enjoyed flea markets, craft sales and toy shows, travelling and meeting all the people at the sales. Marjorie’s special interest was crocheting clothes for all the dolls she purchased and then would unwillingly have to part with at craft and doll shows. At Riverdale Personal Care Home, Marjorie’s favourite things were Bingo and doing puzzles.
Marjorie was predeceased by her husband of 49 years, Leonard H. Tait; parents Eva and Harry Greaves; parents-in-law Geraldine and Harold Tait; sister Audrey (Pat) Rivest; brother Clair Greaves; sisters-in-law Thelma (Stu) McMullan and Lillian (Ed) Huska.
