She married Allan Watson on November 16th, 1957 and together they raised two children, Dave and Carolyn. Marjorie worked as a CSR at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital. She loved her position and even went back to work there after retirement. Marj and Allan loved to dance and were avid Blue Jays fans. She loved spending her days with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She always had ice cream treats in the fridge for them. She spent her weekends having sleepovers with her grandkids. Marjorie’s favorite pastime was the Casino. She enjoyed putting 20 bucks in the penny machines and even hit it big a few times. Bus trips and trips to Las Vegas were a favorite of Marj and Al. Marj spent her evenings watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.
