Not sure what to say?

I have only recently been informed of Marj's death when my Christmas card and letter were returned to me marked "Deceased". We first met nearly 30 years ago when I arrived from England for a years job exchange at ATI.A mutual friend who had known Marj for over 50 years had given me Marj's contact details and she and I met up for coffees and days out which helped me get my bearings as I arrived not knowing anyone in NZ. I'm coming to NZ for a holiday in March so I was hoping to see...

i loved her.

I knew Marj in the 1960s when we were elders together at Ellerslie Presbyteian Church. She was always enthusiastic and full of ideas.

Dear friends and family, Marjorie was a key support in our Auckland Spiritual Community for many years and a vibrant participant in our meditation group. She frequently brought her concerns and passion for the world to our attention and reminded us of where our compassionate action needed to be directed. Marjorie also provided a wonderful hospitality role with the cups of tea after our monthly services with such loyalty and commitment.

COX, Jacqueline Marjorie (Marjorie) (76). Daughter of the late Jack and Mona Cox of Aliford Ave Ellerslie. Loved sister of the late Bernice Reyburn and Abraham (Graham) and sister-in-law of Sarah. Marj in the peak of fitness died surrounded by friends, 7 nieces and their offspring, in the North Shore hospital she had served for many years. She was a tireless social worker. Marj is already sorely missed by our family who saw her as replacement Nana, the Matriarch of the family.
