Marjorie Grace DURNAN
DURNAN, Marjorie Grace It is with deep sadness that we announce Marj's passing at the good age of 90 at Birchmount Hospital on December 1, 2021. Predeceased by brother Grant during the Second World War, sister Barbara and survived by brother Ross of Etobicoke. Marjorie was born, raised and lived a full and happy life in Toronto. Her years as receptionist at Knox College were an especially happy time for her and she touched the lives of many students, some of whom kept in touch with her after her retirement. Marj loved, followed, and served Jesus and was transformed by that relationship throughout her life. She faithfully and routinely prayed for her extended family and was especially interested in the younger generations of the family. A celebration of life will be held on a date to be announced in the near future.

It is because of Marjorie that I live here at Shepherd Village. She recommended it. Before Covid we would travel to church with Wheel-trans. I would phone her anytime after 4 pm and before 5pm when she would have her dinner. Needless to say, I will miss her very much. I want her 2 nephews and 2 nieces to know that she thought of them as her own after her sister went to be with the Lord. I cannot forget the two great nephews. Even the PSW's will miss her. She considered them her mission field and would speak of our Lord whenever she has an opportunity

I want to offer my sympathies to the family of whom I do not know but wanted to share what a lovely woman Marjorie was. She was the "receptionist" at Knox College, of where I attended, but was so much more. She was a gracious and kind woman who was such an encouragement and listening ear to so many students. I look back at my studies and thank God for Marjorie being there when I was there.
