Obituary of Marjorie Ruby Thompson

August 23, 1940 - Portage la Prairie, Manitoba

December 19, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta


Marjorie Thompson (nee Dunn), beloved wife of Lawrence Thompson, of Calgary, AB, passed away on Monday, December 19, 2022, at the age of 82 years.


Marjorie was born at home near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, on August 23, 1940. She grew up in rural Manitoba until she met Larry, moved to Nova Scotia, and married him in 1964. She remained in Nova Scotia while Larry served in the Royal Canadian Air Force. In 1968, the family moved back to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where her daughter Shannon was born. In 1971, the family moved to Gimli where Marjorie discovered a passion for Geriatric Health Care, obtaining her LPN, and working at St. Benedict’s and Betel. Her favorite recreational activities at the time were making friends and playing bingo. In 1981 she left Gimli, Manitoba, for Calgary, Alberta, to be near her grandchildren. She has remained in Calgary until the present.


She will be very much remembered for her radiant personality and wonderful sense of humour. Marjorie’s favourite poem was “Footprints in the Sand”.


Marjorie is survived by her loving husband Larry, daughter Shannon, son-in-law Troy, son Richard, and daughter-in-law Cynthia. She is also survived by her four grandchildren, Angela, Aaron, Tanner, and Trent; as well as her two great-grandchildren, Alex and Ethan, all of whom live in Calgary.


Marjorie is also survived by her brother Russell Dunn and sister Mildred Martin, both of Winnipeg. She was predeceased by her sister Theresa Irvine of Edmonton.
