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.

Dear Bob & Family:
I was so sorry to hear of Marj's passing. She was an absolutely amazing person and a good friend. She fought her illness so couragesly and bravely, with such an ongoing wonderful disposition no matter how her body was failing. She always had a smile for anyone who came near.
She can now rest peacefully.
She will be missed by all who knew her.
My sincerest condolenses to you and the family at this time.
Love, Donna Good, (Kelowna, BC)

Lori what a terrific presentation; I've never seen anything like it. Well done, you! The pictures reflect a wonderful family who is surrounded by love; and even though your Mother had some difficult years, it's clear that she was loved by your Dad and the family they raised. What a lucky lady.

It's so difficult losing a parent, but alas, part of the life cycle. I know she will be in your thoughts and prayers always.

I see where you got those gorgeous long legs.
With love, Raney

Lori, I too had a fun loving Mother - I imagine that your Mom was a blessing for her family, as was mine. May God Bless You and Yours in this time of grief.
