Marj had a powerful presence in the social services community during all her years as a professional social worker. I worked closely with her and was a friend during the height of her activism in the field and have wonderful memories of her from those years.

Marjorie Martin has died and I am sad. After knowing her as the BC Association of Social Workers and as the sender of frequent well-thought positions, critiques of BC and Canadian social policy and occasional calls for action, I had the pleasure of working with her when she joined the UBC School of Social Work as Field Education coordinator for a year after her retirement from the School of Social Work at UVIC. She was calm and passionate, fun and funny, organized, generous, and very efficient. She was loved by both students and faculty members. Marjorie was an inspirational colleague, gracious with all, but never kowtowing to anybody. She demonstrated solid clinical skills, organizational and planning acumen, political finesse, a clear vision of a fair and enjoyable society and commitment to achieve social and economic justice. In one word, a through-and-through social worker and, in my books, pretty much the highest possible compliment.

Marj, you were what real social working is about - you always said Before bringing in counselling make sure people have enough money for food and rent, recreation, help with parenting and a supportive network of friends . Who could disagree. You taught U Vic students this and others you met along the way. Miss you. Penny Parry, Vancouver

Marj: I will miss you but I remember the many happy times we shared.

I first met Marj in 1973 when she was my practicum supervisor. Her commitment to social and economic justice was plain, as was her kindness and sense of humour. I had the pleasure of her friendship and of co-chairing the NDP Social Policy Committee. I was greatly saddened by her illness and now her passing.
