The Pitts family is very sad to announce the passing of Marj on Friday, November 16, 2012 after a long and courageous battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Marj was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan on April 14, 1933. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Robert and her children: Jennifer Thorne of Chilliwack, BC; Lori and Tom Bright of Upland, CA; Jim and Candy Pitts of Winston Salem, NC; Cathy and Dean Roy of Calgary, AB; Bob and Jacquelyne Pitts of San Juan Capistrano, CA; and Tom and Cheryl Pitts of Sacramento, CA. Marj was very proud of her children and her eleven grandchildren: Melyssa, Amanda, Rebecca, Tyler, Ryan, Chris, Jason, Anna, Sydney, Devyn and Lula. She was predeceased by her father Daniel Morton, her mother Erna Morton and her sister Chuckie. Marj led a very active life and was an enthusiastic participant in many sports, particularly figure skating. She leaves behind a wide circle of long standing friends.
