My all time favourite client. I looked forward to working for Marjorie every 6 months or so. I loved chatting with her. She was always so kind and genuine. I feel very lucky and truly honoured to have known both Marj and Ray.
Our sincere condolences to Julie & Family.

My dad, Paul, and Uncle Ray were characters in their own right. Dad always had a joke and Uncle Ray had a great laugh. Sometimes working together it could get a little distracting.

Aunt Marj was always the calming voice in the room. I never saw her get upset or raise her voice but when she spoke, people listened, especially Ray.

Aunt Marj, you were always a wonderful spirit in this life, I know you and Ray will get to laugh and enjoy each other's company again.

Rest in Peace, Aunt Marj, you are loved.

Marj was an extraordinary woman. Yes, we shall certainly miss her, but the fact that she was a part of our lives, enriching and enlightening our existence, filling us with the gems of her wit and wisdom, her quiet confidence, her grounded nature, the scope of her understanding and love, has left us all the better for it being so.
In the last century, there was still a tradition of ‘Grand Women’. Women of tremendous stature, integrity, grace, kindness, compassion, and human dignity, who, without fuss, gave us the guidance and support needed to take us through our journeys of learning and emotional development, our concerns, and did it all quietly and without us realizing that the care, so undeserved, was lavished on us discretely and with no expectation of reward for having done so.
Marj was just such a Grand Lady. And she married a LeBlond, Ray, who was able to be the special husband, Dad, grandpa, uncle, cousin, brother and friend to so many because she enabled him to do so. All she ever wanted of any of us was to be good to each other, to give of our best for each other.
She was a beautiful, Classy Lady. She always looked immaculate, not through pretentiousness, but the simple pride of humbly putting her best self forward in respect of those around her. She gave real meaning to the dignity of the human being.
She has gone to the Heavenly reward she so richly deserves. Blessings, Marj.

Marjorie ( Marj )was always my favorite aunt;, she always had a smile on her lovely face and never a negative thing to say about anyone. She loved her family and garden. Ray and Marj built a great life together and raised a lovely daughter. Together they both helped at any time to support their church; even though Ray has passed years ago the hallways will now miss them both.
Unfortunately due to the situation in the past one and a half years we have only been able to talk by phone. Marj always loved her conversations by phone with Susan and called often to make sure we were well.
My dear sweet Lady the world will be short one of it’s best.
Love always
Richard

I met Julie's Mom when we were both in the second grade. Marj was not even thirty then. She was kind, beautiful with a dignified and gracious bearing. It was so much fun to be in the LeBlond household with Mr. LeBlond seeing how fast we could find the mouse in the Norris cartoon in the newspaper and quietly joking with Marj who all the while was efficiently making us all dinner. How did Marj run the household, work as a nurse, and send you off to school Julie spotless in your school uniform and with those stunning ringlets? Marj was an amazing, capable woman. Luckily she has passed those attributes on to her daughter. Marj will be truly missed. Much love and sincere condolences, Cathie (and Jerry)

I will miss my Aunti Marji so very much, her wisdom her strength and the special relationship we had. She was one of a kind , I always likened her to the Queen which made her laugh, her special laugh with "oh Susan". That I will remember! Love to all the family. She is now with Ray.

I had only recently met Marj at Julie and Howard's Christmas parties. I loved sitting beside her and talking about life. She gave me such a warm cozy feeling like a warm blanket wrapped around me. I will sooooo miss seeing her. Marj I hope you meet my Mom and Dad Gladys and Hughie you will have ball together. All my love ❤️😇

Heartfelt condolence to you all during this very difficult time. Marjorie was a strong, faithful, and caring woman. I remember as a teen, after mass, she and Ray would come over to say hello. Marjorie had a smile that could light up the room and felt so welcoming. She will be missed.
Sending prayers to all the family.
