Marjorie Rosaline Huggins of Harris, Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully at the age of 95 on February 23, 2021 while in care at Rosetown Hospital.
Marjorie was born in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, the oldest of eight siblings. From an early age, she was the matriarch and helped raise her siblings. Family was everything to Marjorie and they stayed close throughout the years, regardless of where her adventures took her. Many of her siblings lived with Marjorie at different points in their life and were always welcomed with open arms.
When Marjorie turned 18, she joined the military. While on a brief leave she met the love of her life William (Jack) Huggins. Jack proposed and married his Nova Scotia Rose on August 6, 1945 in Regina, Saskatchewan.
When Marjorie left the military, they settled into their first home in Regina, an army hut, and started their family. They raised five children in Saskatchewan with a few years spent in Nova Scotia. Marjorie worked at Simpson Sears and also took care of many foster children, all of whom she loved as if they were her own. Throughout her life, she continued to welcome and love her family and friends that she met along the way.
Marjorie loved knitting, playing bingo and scratch tickets. Her sense of humor could be seen by the twinkle in her eye as she played a good practical joke whenever she had the opportunity. One of her favorite places to spend time was at Imperial Beach, Saskatchewan with her family. She enjoyed camping with family at various parks around Saskatoon. She had a special place in her heart for her home in Nova Scotia. Marjorie felt extra blessed to watch one of her grandchildren being born. She spent many days helping with the garden and spending time with animals, especially her dog Jackson. Always with a strong inner strength and huge heart, her family relied on her unconditional love and wisdom. Nothing made her prouder than being involved in her family’s activities and lives. Her spunk and zest for life brought joy to all. Marjorie always lived with family, as was her wish.
Marjorie’s husband passed away in May of 1979 and she devoted the rest of her life to family as a single mother. She stayed loyal and devoted to her husband and family exhibiting a strong presence that anchored the children, grandchildren and great children. Her strong faith helped her through these difficult times knowing that one day she would be reunited with her husband Jack.
Marjorie is survived by her five children Jack (Kathy) Huggins, Margie (Gene) Hval, Judy Grad, Wendy Huggins, and Linda (Shawn) Yuke; ten grandchildren Tanya (Brett) McAuley, Mark (Michelle) Huggins, Allison Mullin, Matthew (Binh) Huggins, Tammie Huggins, Kim (Troy) Kelly, Laurie (Garry) Armstrong, Tara (Jonathan) Gaetz, Sara Huggins, and Charity Huggins, and twenty-two great grandchildren Olivia, Brad and Ben McAuley, Eden, Jack and Anna Huggins, Noelle and Luc Mullin, Nikayla, Shaun and Kelsea Huggins, Amanda, Kevin and Jason Kelly, Mackenzie, Brandon, Jessica, Alexandra and Ethan Armstrong, Brayden and Albie Gaetz, Kingston Huggins, and siblings Garry Farris, Mick Farris and Judy Scott.
Through Amazing Grace, she joins her husband Jack Huggins, parents Arthur (Hilda) Farris and siblings Geraldine, Jim, Audrey, and Marion.
