SMITH, Marjorie Irene Smith - Obituary | Print |

SMITH, Marjorie Irene -   "Express Condolences"

Smith_MarjorieFebruary 18, 1909 - October 19, 2014

Died at 105 years in Kitchener on Sunday, October 19, 2014 of an old age.

She was born in 1909 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England to Frank and Matilda Underwood. She married Canadian Army corporal Dennis (Denny) Smith in February 1945 and emigrated to Canada in May 1946. She was predeceased by Denny in 2002, by her parents and by three sisters (Dorothy, Lily, Eva) and seven brothers (Harold, Archie, Lawrence, Sidney, Stanley, Albert, Reginald).

She is survived by son Daryl and nieces and nephews and their extensive families in England and Australia.

In Worcestershire she worked for J.P. Harvey and National Standard. In Kitchener she worked for Goodwill Department Store, George Whitney Realty and Ostranders Jewelers.

Marjorie was a true lady and the leader of her family. She was very particular about her appearance, home and garden. In every thought and gesture, she ensured that her home was filled with love and she shared her grace and happiness with many friends. In England she excelled at all sports especially tennis and cycling and had a flair for creative crafts. She loved grocery shopping at Zehrs Laurentian, afternoon coffee excursions and offered a warm smile and word of encouragement to everyone.

Marjorie was an extremely proud Canadian and loved the rural beauty of Ontario. She was an advocate for animals and wildlife, saving part of every meal so that she could feed her "birdie" friends on a daily basis. She loved all dogs and marveled at the beauty of flowers. She was profoundly cheerful and optimistic and had a sincere faith in the goodness of other people. She was always interested in tomorrow, in "what is next" and in the compelling future that recedes before us.

She took great delight in the kindness of staff in stores and businesses which she frequented and was renowned for her jaunty red cap. She happily participated in the wonderful Senior Day Program at Kitchener's Downtown Community Centre.

Marjorie Smith always did her best and was an outstanding wife, mother, aunt, neighbour and friend. She returned to Kidderminster often if only in her sweet dreams.

Relatives and friends will be received at WESTMOUNT FUNERAL CHAPEL, 1001 Ottawa St. S (at Westmount Rd.), 519-743-8900, on Wednesday, October 22 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.

A funeral service will be held Thursday, October 23 at 10 a.m. in the funeral home chapel. Interment to follow in Woodland Cemetery.

If you wish to remember Marjorie with a donation, it would have been meaningful to her that it be directed to the Ontario Humane Society or World Wildlife Fund.

As she would say, "…and away we go!"
