Obituary of Marjorie Dafoe

Marjorie Mary Dafoe (Kennedy) daughter of Robert and Mary Kennedy was born on July 28, 1932, and passed away September 17, 2021, at the age of 89.


Marjorie grew up in Tofield and attended McKenzie school. She worked in Edmonton as a waitress and at Elk Island Park restaurant. In 1952 she married Earl (Red) Dafoe and after living in various homes in the Tofield area they settled on an acreage just outside of town. Marjorie spent her time looking after the animals, (mostly her chickens), gardening and baking. She always had a plate of baking ready to put out for when anyone stopped by for coffee. She and Earl spent time with their grandchildren and took pleasure in supporting them in whatever sport or activity they took part in. Marjorie was an active member of the Anglican Church Women’s group.


She is survived by her daughters, Karen Dafoe and Sandy (Dale) Lusk; four grandchildren Melanie and Tim Lusk and Michael and Sam Dafoe-Clarke; two great grandchildren Raylan and Mckinley Dafoe-Clarke. She is also survived by one sister Elsie Langerak and two brothers Gordon (Leola) and Robert Kennedy.


Marjorie was predeceased by her husband Earl; infant daughter Sheila; son-in-law Alvin Clarke and brother William Kennedy.


A private service will be held. Donations may be made to the Holy Trinity Anglican Church or the Canadian Cancer Society.
