Obituary of Marilyn Louise Major

Marilyn Louise Major of Georgetown passed away peacefully in her 88th year on January 23, 2022 at her family home. Marilyn will be sadly missed by her beloved husband of 70 years, Paul, her 5 children and their spouses, Tricia and Jeff McKechnie, Chris and LeeAnn Major, Karen Major, Terry and Tim Scarrow, Barbara Major and Dave Bouck, her 10 grandchildren and 13 greatgrandchildren. Marilyn was born at home on the farm in Hay Township, ON, on January 28,1934. She had a love for softball and was an all-star pitcher where ever she played. While living in PEI, the local newspapers said “If you ask us to name a winner, we can only yawn and come back with a counter-question. Is Marilyn in town? Okay, you’ve had your answer...” She loved family time, some of which was traveling. Early trips started with 5 kids and a dog in a station wagon and trailer. Later on, other enjoyable adventures included road trips, cruises, and vacations exploring new places. Her all-time favourite was just a few years ago, when all the family gathered in Vancouver, before some continued on to an Alaskan cruise. Marilyn was an avid gardener throughout her life. In her later years when moving into their condo she enjoyed being active in both the social club and bridge club. Marilyn had such a kind heart and took the time to listen and to make everyone feel special. Visitation will be held at Jones Funeral Home on Wednesday January 26, 2022 between 7-9 pm. Funeral service will be held at Holy Cross Church on Thursday, January 27, 2022 at 10:30am with Father Dave Walter officiating. Due to Covid restrictions, there will be no reception following. Memorial donations may be made to C.A.S.H.H. (Cancer Assistance Services Halton Hills) or Holy Cross Parish, Georgetown. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Dr Y Razvi and all the health care personnel who cared for Marilyn during her illness. Her friends and neighbours at Victoria Garden Condo gave much support and comfort to both Marilyn and Paul.
