Marjorie Joan (Harris) Wadge

1939 - 2021



Marjorie Joan Wadge passed away peacefully on Friday, April 9th, 2021 surrounded by her family at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC.

Marjorie was born in Jordan Falls, Nova Scotia where she lived with her parents Effie and Wilfred Harris, and her two sisters Winnie and Elizabeth. While working in Halifax, Marjorie met Richard, a handsome, young navy sailor who became her life-long partner of 61 years. Marjorie and Richard had two children: Dan and Cindy. Early in their marriage, they lived in Nova Scotia before moving to Kirkland Lake, Ontario, eventually settling in Ashcroft, B.C. 

Marjorie is survived by her husband Richard, her son Dan and his children Emily and Erin as well as her daughter Cindy and her husband Craig as well as Cindy’s children Zach, Max, and Kameron. Marjorie was predeceased by her parents and her older sister Winnie.

Marjorie was an elementary school teacher and was very passionate about education, her students, and life-long learning. After retirement, she volunteered her time at the local thrift store and the Ashcroft Hospital hospice.

Marjorie was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be so missed.

Due to COVID, there will be no memorial service. Marjorie’s ashes will be taken back to Nova Scotia and interred in Jordan Falls.

Donations may be made in Marjorie’s name directly to the Scleroderma Association of B.C. at

My sincerest sympathies to Dick and family. Cousin Marjorie was such a kind and sweet person....always enjoyed "bumping into" her and Dick at various gatherings during their summer visits...auctions, community breakfasts....
Treasure your memories.

 Aunt Marjorie was a huge part of our lives'.. Her 3 nieces and nephew in Nova Scotia have many wonderful memories of their  times together. Every summer the family came home to Jordan Falls.. There were picnics, swimming at the lake and many late night games in grampy's  field.. Even once their family had grown ,Aunt Marjorie and Uncle Dick still made the trip home. Theses last few years we have been able to spend more  time together .. She loved family get togethers and often liked to plan events. We all loved her very much and will miss her terribly . Sending love across the miles to all of you.
