March 16, 1924 – January 16, 2009
The family of Marjorie Archibald are sad to announce her passing on January 16, 2009 at the age of 84. Marj suffered from a fractured leg and due to long term medical problems was unable to recover. A memorial service was held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses on Saturday January 24, 2009 with a tea at the Seniors Centre following the service.
Marjorie met her husband Francis in 1946 in her home town of Grand Prairie, Alberta and shortly after moved to Wilmer BC with her new husband. The family moved to Golden BC in 1948 where they settled down to start a family and remained for 60 years.
Marjorie was an active member of the Jehovah’s Witness Congregation. Her faith and her family were the greatest joy of her life. She was a loving friend and always there to help those in need.
Marj was predeceased by her husband Francis in 1974 and son Lorne in 1989; sisters: Doreen, Kathleen and Mildred and her brother Bob. She will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her children: Aaron (Rose) Archibald of Golden, Margo (Claude) Richard of Enderby, Doug (Alvina) Archibald of Cranbrook and Shannon (Barry) Archibald-Lacasse of Golden; daughter-in-law Bev Archibald of Cranbrook; 12 grandchildren: Melita (Greg), Dean (Brandy), Monique (Tyler), Reuben, Clayton, Richelle (Jeff), Yvonne (Josh), Avery (Jed), Chantelle (Darryl), Andrea (John), Shea and Kamber; great grandchildren: Nya, Madison, Carter, Courtenay, Justin, Sabrina, Brandon and one on the way.
