Marjorie Adeline Wilson

April 28, 1925July 15, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Marjorie Adeline Wilson, on July 15, 2020 at Digby General Hospital . She was 95 years old. Born in Digby, Marj was a daughter of the late Fred and Ruth (Scragg) Daley.

After high school Marj attended the Provincial Normal College in Truro and taught school for 2 years. She married Don Wilson in 1947, gave up teaching and devoted her life to raising their children. Throughout her marriage she supported her husband in his family businesses (The Scallop Bowl and Fundy Motors). Mom and Dad enjoyed many interests over the years, including dancing, camping, bowling, golfing, motorcycling, and spending winters in Florida. In her later years Mom continued to be active by going to Curves, walking, and swimming at the Pines in the summers. She loved her home and her independence. She managed to live in her own house, alone, cook her own meals, and do her own errands up until her 94th year. Marj is survived by her children, Michael (Hazel), Donna (Jim) and Randy (Vicky), grandchildren, Amy and Michelle, great grandchildren Wyatt, Jacob and Haley, sisters Louise Mailman, Kentville and Irene Redmond, Shelburne, and several nieces and nephews.

Marj was predeceased by her husband Don in 2005, brothers: Lew, Wallie, Fred Jr., Bobby, and her sister, Joyce Landers.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Digby General Hospital for their kindness and for their compassionate care of our mother in her final weeks. Despite the constraints of Covid19 they did all they could to keep us connected with Mom via phone, Skype, and outside visits. For all this we are grateful.

Cremation has taken place under the care of Jayne’s Funeral Home. There will be a celebration of life on August 8th, 2PM at the Digby Baptist Church. Rev. Jeff White officiating. In lieu of flowers donations in Marj’s memory can be made to the Digby Baptist Church.

“There are no good-byes, wherever you are, you will always be in our hearts.”

I was 9 when my dad passed and I remember Aunt Marg holding my hand so tight consoling me and my brothers. She always made the effort to show her kindness over the years. She was a hell of a bowler and I admired her spunk. She certainly live a good life as did Grammy. She will be missed my prayers are with the family. 🙏
