Marjorie Putland of Kamloops B.C. passed suddenly but peacefully on March 4, 2018 with her daughter and her partner by her side at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice.

Marjorie, the youngest of eleven, was born in Saltcoats, Sask. on January 25, 1945. Marjorie will be deeply missed by her son Allan and wife Diane Putland of Dalroy, AB, daughter Susan and husband Ron Armstrong of Kamloops, B.C., her four grandchildren Ashley and Jennifer Armstrong and Patrick and Stephanie Putland all of whom she loved dearly. She also leaves behind her loving partner Kenneth Edwards, her trusty sidekick Mary Armstrong, four of her siblings Dorah, Elsie, Bella and Jimmy, numerous nieces and nephews and countless friends.

Marjorie is predeceased by her parents John and Jenny Wasilenchuk, brothers Johnny, Nelson, Nick and Mike and sisters Mary and Vicky. She now joins her husband of 44 years, Stanley, who passed August 5, 2008. Little Grannie, although small in size was mighty in spirit; this is more evident than ever as her passing leaves a huge hole in our family. She was a modest woman who radiated kindness and had a great sense of humour. She enjoyed spending time with her family, fishing, dancing, road trips and could can the best pickles and beets from here to the Ukraine. Marjorie enjoyed her volunteer work at the Alano Club where they referred to her as their “Little Angel.”

In celebration of Marjorie’s life, her family will be hosting a potluck at Paul Lake Provincial Park Summer 2018. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice under her name.

With a heavy but grateful heart, the family would like to thank, Dr. Miranda Du Preez, Estella Patrick Moller, and all of the staff of the Kamloops hospice for their compassionate care, ceremony, and attention. Forever in our hearts, we will miss you Little Grannie.
