It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marie Anderson on Sunday, October 11th, 2009 at the age of 85 years. Marie was born in Prelate, Saskatchewan on October 23rd, 1923, coming from a large family of eleven children, who are now all deceased.

They were married on February 14th, 1946 in Moose Jaw when Bill returned from overseas. They resided in McCord, Saskatchewan before moving to Moose Jaw. She was well known as “the cheery clerk” at the Army and Navy Department Store.
