Obituary of Marjorie Ruth Garnett
Marjorie "Marge" Ruth Garnett
(August 5, 1936 - September 21, 2021)
Marjorie "Marge" Ruth Garnett of Camrose, Alberta, passed away on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at the age of 85 years.
Marge was born on August 5, 1936 in Hardisty, Alberta to parents Erle and Eileen Clark. She grew up in the Alliance area with younger brother Pat.
After marrying Donald Garnett in 1955 they spent several years in southern Alberta moving to Camrose in 1972. Once settled in Camrose Marge worked for the City of Camrose. Don passed away in 1991.
After a few years, Marge’s love of dancing became her passion. Together with female friends she went to numerous dances in the area. She met her second husband Mike at one of these functions. He passed away in 2002.
Marge’s love for dancing was second to her love of shopping. Matching accessories were a must.
Due to declining health in recent years, Marge no longer attended dances but enjoyed listening to music and singing along with other residents in Memory Lane.
Left to cherish her memory are her children Susan Garnett of Camrose, Cathy (Dean) Brown of Medicine Hat, and Brian (Michelle) Garnett of Camrose; six grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; and daughter-in-law Rosalie Garnett.
Marge was predeceased by her first husband Donald Garnett, second husband Mike Malbeuf, infant daughter Ruth, son Robert, grandson Blaine Armbruster, brother Pat Clark, and parents Erle and Eileen Clark.
A Funeral Service was held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, September 25, 2021 from the Burgar Memorial Chapel with Rev. Brian Hunter officiating.
