RATCHFORD, MARJORIE GRACE
May 2, 1928 – Feb. 6, 2013
Marge was born in Vancouver, BC, second oldest of 8 children. Most of her growing up years were spent in Calgary, Alberta. During the war years she was a “telegraph girl”
delivering by bicycle. After moving to Prince Rupert, BC, she met and married her beloved Frank. With both of them working in the Post Office they had many happy times there. They were also involved with Kinettes and Kinsmen, which continued when Frank was tranferred to Duncan.
Her likes and abilities were many. She worked for Shoppers Drug Mart, and was an avid gardener, and her great loves were crocheting and butterflies.
In 2005 Marge moved to Kelowna and was involved with Rutland Seniors Branch 55, where she spent a lot of happy times.
Marge will be especially missed by her sister Mavis and brother-in-law Wally, with whom she spent many happy years, as well as a large extended family. There was a
special place in her heart for her god-daughter Carolyn, her “chosen” grandson Matt, as well as her many good friends. In the last years, special mention to Marie, Marolyn, and
Biba, who will all miss her. Her life was a blessing to all
who knew her.
No service by Marge’s request.
