Sincere condolences to Donna, Lou Anne, Jean and your families. I met Marj through shuffleboard in the 90’s and have many fantastic memories of the travel times we shared as well as the good times we had at her home in Blenheim. Marj was always up to a game of cards and was an active partner at pulling pranks. Her sense of humor and friendship will be missed.

My sincere condolences to the entire family.

What a pleasure and privilege to have known such an interesting happy Champion of an Woman, We will always remember her radiant face and the instant warmth felt when first meeting her. A loving lovely lady who really loved a challenging game of Euchre.

We are so sorry for your loss. We first knew Marje at Park City when she became friends with my mother and father, Francis and Evelyn Renaud. Over the years we had become friends as well and she became my mentor for playing shuffleboard. She was such a big part of our lives in Park City and we will miss her smiles and sass. It won't be the same without her.

Donna, Rick, Lou Anne, Bob, Bill, Jan, Jean, Jim, Myra, Don, Shayna, all of your families and the Knott family. Sending my deepest sympathies and love to you all. Marj was a wonderful Mom and Grandma, I can still hear that call she would make to get your attention outside. I have many fond memories at the farm. Love you all, hugs and prayers. Karen
