<div itemprop="description">On September 20th 2020, the joy of our life passed away at the CHLSD Father Dowd after battling years of Alzheimer’s. Marjory turned 90 years old on September 12th. She was predeceased by her mother (Bernice Massam) and her father (Charles David Grimshaw, a survivor of World War 1). Our father (Arthur J. Broden) joined Marjory at the Father Dowd where he died in February, 2014. <br> <br>Born in St-Jerome QC, Marjory met a life-long friend there, Doreen Berry (nee O’Brien) who has been with her throughout these years. In her youth, our mother loved spending time with her relatives in Huntingdon, Quebec, especially the Smythe’s family. Our mother managed to take care of a houseful of 5 children: Susan (Steve Jackson), Paul, David, Michael and Patricia. She volunteered at Transfiguration of Our Lord Church, sewing, knitting and baking for the church’s bazaars as well as sewing costumes for kids’ ballet performances. As her children grew up, she began looking for more things to do. Mom helped out at the local elementary school and the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital. She also took on a variety of part-time jobs including work at the McGill Cancer Centre followed by the McGill Biomedical Mass Spectrometry Unit with Orval Mamer and Jane Montgomery, who introduced her to the fun of oenology. One of her lifelong goals was to complete her university education, which she proudly attained at age 64, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Social Science. Somehow, during all of this, Marjory also found plenty of time to lovingly care for and spoil her two grandchildren, Fred Charbonneau and Courtney Jackson. Aside from her joie de vivre and beautiful smile, she will be fondly remembered for always welcoming friends and family to her cottage at Lake Hughes, her favourite place on earth. <br> <br>We are indebted to all of the staff at the CHSLD Father Dowd and its Auxiliary who had done everything possible to keep her comfortable. We are particularly grateful to Giovanna and the 3rd floor team for their exceptional care and compassion. In addition to Doreen Berry’s help, we have special thanks to our uncle Ken Broden and aunt Heather for their great support. <br> <br>Due to the pandemic, there will not be a wake or a funeral this year. We will be organizing a get-together at a later date.</div>
