TROSKEY, Marjorie Isabel
The Guest Book is expired.
January 27, 1912 – May 11, 2012
Marjorie Troskey died peacefully in her sleep on May 11, 2012 in White Rock, BC. She was 100 years old. Marj was predeceased by Harv, her husband of 67 years, and by her brothers Ian and Cam. She is survived by her daughter Lynn, Peter Hesketh and her niece and nephews and their families.
Marj was born in Last Mountain, Saskatchewan and lived in Raymore until she attended the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon where she earned a Bachelor of Arts. She worked in Regina until her marriage in 1942 to Maxwell Harvard Troskey, her friend since childhood.
Marj and Harv had a long and happy life - full of friends, sports, bridge, travel and martinis. They divided their time between Maui and White Rock, BC which allowed them to play tennis almost every day until they were well into their 80's. Marj was a warm and gracious hostess and was cherished by her friends.
We are grateful to Azucena Quinio dela Cruz for her invaluable assistance and would like to thank the staff at Peace Portal Lodge for all their care and kindness.
We are honouring Marj's wish that there be no funeral, no memorial and no flowers.
