Marjorie was born and raised in Flesherton, the third child of Harold and Mona Richardson. She left the area to become a teacher, marrying Lester and eventually settling in Streetsville. Marjorie started her teaching career in a one-room schoolhouse at Wesley school. She retired from the Peel District School Board having taught for 37 years. Marjorie always supported her children's interests by volunteering with the Hockette’s, an organization that supported Streetsville Minor Hockey by running social events and fundraisers. Aside from her family, singing was a great love of hers. Marjorie sang with the Streetsville United Church choir as well as “Justus”, a community choir with a passion for performing.
A funeral service will take place on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 11:00am at Gentle Shepherd Community Church (426176 Concession Rd 8, Flesherton) with visitation for 1 hour prior to the service. If you plan to attend, we ask that you use the RSVP service found on Marjorie’s memorial page at www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca
Due to current regional COVID-19 restrictions, a Celebration of Life will take place in Streetsville at a later date. Memorial Donations to CAMH would be greatly appreciated.
