Marjory Toffolo (Templeton)

May 17, 1915 – June 2, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Auntie Marge in her 97th year.

Marge was predeceased by her husband Remo, her son Gary, her parents and all seven of her brothers and sisters. She is lovingly remembered and will be forever missed by her daughter Bev Pellegrin (Ron) and her granddaughters Joelle and Brenda, nieces and nephews, brothers in law Ivo and Joe and her many friends.

Marge was born and raised in Ponteix, Saskatchewan and moved to Trail in 1938 to work in the OK Bakery. Here she met and married Remo and together with his family operated Toffolo and Sons grocery store. Marge was a charter member of the Ladies Eagle Lodge in Trail, Sisters of Colombo, the Ladies Gyros and the CWL. With the Eagles she was a member of the drill team and really enjoyed going to the many performances throughout Canada and the U.S. Marge enjoyed playing the piano, bowling, playing cards and dice. Her summers were filled with days at Christina Lake and on the Arrow Lake at Nakusp with all her family and friends. Marge was an amazing woman and an inspiration to all of us who were fortunate to know her and love her.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Trail on Wednesday, June 6 at 1:30 pm with Father Matthieu Gombo Yange OfmCap, celebrant. Jordan Wren of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
