Obituary of Marjorie Alice Graves

With appreciation for a life well-lived, the family of Marjorie Alice Graves announces her passing, which occurred on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at Ridgewood Veterans Wing. Born in Carrolls Crossing, NB on June 30, 1922, she was a daughter of the late Weldon and Evelyn (Storey) O’Donnell. Marjorie was predeceased by her loving husband, John Irwin Graves on January 11, 2018 after 75 years of marriage. She met John, the love of her life, in Fredericton, NB when they joined the Army and were married shortly after. They started their family and Marjorie was a caring and devoted mother to her children. She enjoyed caring for her garden, traveling with her husband, and in her later years, spending time with her precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Marjorie will be missed by two daughters: Judith Walsh (Ken) of Black River and Kathy Baxter (Wayne) of Baxters Corner; Three sons: John (Donna), Douglas (Sandra) and Barry Graves all of Black River; thirteen grandchildren; fifteen great-grandchildren; her siblings, Raymond O’Donnell (Patricia), Lloyd O’Donnell (Toni) and Sheila Doak; as well as several nieces and nephews.
