Marjorie Coghill

Passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 23 at age 82, after many years of suffering with debilitating arthritis, with never a complaint, and always a cheery word and smile for all around her. Marjorie was lovingly nursed throughout those years by her devoted sister Betty Mielke, with much appreciated assistance from the D.V.A., the South Cariboo Home Support Nurses, District Nurses and Doctor R. Nicolson. Marjorie was born in Scotland, June 13, 1921. She served in the British Army from 1940 through 1945, and immigrated to Vancouver, B.C. in 1954, then joined her sister Betty and husband Bill (deceased 1997) in the Cariboo in 1958, where Marjorie worked for the 100 Mile Herald, and then Ainsworth Lumber. In 1992 they all retired from ranching and moved into 100 Mile House. Marjorie leaves behind many good friends from around the world and is survived by her devoted sister Elizabeth (Betty) Mielke; her loving half-sister Jessie, Scotland; half brothers George, Canada; Sandy, Scotland; and step sisters Rose and Louise. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Arthritis Society would be appreciated. No service by request. Sadly missed – with everlasting memories.
