Obituary of Marjory Jean Shewchuk

January 16, 1941 - Edmonton, Alberta

January 30, 2023 - Cochrane, Alberta


Marjory Shewchuk, beloved wife of the late Ernie Shewchuk  of Cochrane, AB passed away suddenly on Monday, January 30, 2023 at the age of 82 years.


Marjory was born in Edmonton in January of 1941 along with her twin brother George. She spent her early years on the family farm in Duffield, Alberta with her parents and older brother Freddie. She entered nursing school at the Royal Alexander Hospital in Edmonton and graduated in 1961. That was a big year for her as she also met her honey Ernie and became a Mrs. in November of that year. Soon after, they moved to Calgary and became a family of five. In 1968, they moved to Bragg Creek where she lived until 2017. After getting the kids all started in school Marjory worked as pharmacy technician and loved her fellow workers who she still had contact with. 


Marjory was active in the community - in particular with the Bragg Creek Ladies Auxiliary, the Bragg Creek Artisans, and the Bragg Creek Snowbirds. In her retired years, her job title expanded to Grandma where she was the head crafter and all-around handy woman. After Dad passed away in 2016, she moved to Cochrane and enjoyed a change in lifestyle and living closer to family. Recently she had moved to Big Hill Lodge and loved it there. We will miss her.


Marjory is survived by her children, Pam (Charlie), Kelly (Jon), Darcy; grandchildren, Michelle (Ben), Cody (Kelsey), Robin (Travis), and Carmen (Jamie); great-grandsons, Edison and Jasper.


Marjory was predeceased by her husband Ernie Shewchuk.
