<div itemprop="description">OVERBY &ndash; Marjorie (Marj) Evelyn <br />November 24, 1917 &ndash; July 5, 2014 <br /> <br />On July 5, 2014 Marjorie Evelyn Overby passed away at the age of 96 at Newport Harbour Care Centre. She was predeceased by her loving husband Stanley of 66 years, in November 2013, her brother Everett Wiley and her parents Lemuel and Ethel (Caskey) Wiley. Marjorie was born on the family farm in Lanfine, AB on November 24, 1917. Here is where she had many fond memories. She attended a one room school which would inspire Marj to become a teacher. She taught in numerous one room school houses in southern Alberta before marrying a fellow teacher named Stanley on December 20, 1947. They moved to and settled in Calgary. Marj enjoyed travelling, camping and square dancing. She was an avid sewer and she sewed all of her square dancing dresses. Upon retirement Marj and Stan would spend their winters in Mesa, Arizona. This is where she mastered such crafts as china painting, needle point and crocheting. Marj will be dearly missed by her nieces, Diane Mulgrew and Heather Pietramala along with their families, cousins and friends. Special thanks to Joyce Wilson for regular visits, the staff at Newport Harbour Care Centre for exceptional care and Penny and Doug Asplund who opened their hearts and home to Marj and Stan during their later years of life. Marj was active until the end and enjoyed life to the fullest. A Funeral Service will be held at Eden Brook Funeral Home on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Interment to follow in Eden Brook Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made in Marj&rsquo;s name directly to the Canadian Cancer Society (200 &ndash; 325 Manning Road N.E., Calgary, AB, T2E 2P5).</div>
