LECKIE, Marjorie Ruth (Marge)

Marjorie Ruth Leckie (Marge)

Marjorie Ruth Leckie (Marge) passed away peacefully on September 15th, 2022, at the age of 98.
She left her beloved Salt Spring Island, surrounded by family in a family member’s garden, by way of Medical Assistance in Dying.

Mum was a long time member of Dying with Dignity and we are so grateful to her personal physician and the MAID doctor and nurse who provided her the means to go when she knew it was time. Although she could no longer help weed the flower beds, until very recently she still walked the grounds at Meadowbrook where the staff and residents made her feel at home. Mum was the sharpest card player in the family.

She always had a twinkle in her eye when she came from behind to win. Her keen desire to be independent and useful meant she was seldom idle. She finished her final project, helping to sew a sail cover for her son and daughter-in-law’s boat, days before she passed.

In her kind and gentle way, as wife, mother and teacher, Mum’s social conscience, strength and moral compass were reflected in her resolve to be true to her values. Happiest outdoors, she gave her time and resources to many environmental groups and lived her life walking as softly on mother earth as she could.
~ The Leckie Family.

(At our mother’s request, there will be no funeral service. Gifts in her name to Dying with Dignity or the proposed Community Park on Mount Maxwell or an environmental cause of your choice, would be welcome.)
