POLLEY, Marjorie

September 22, 1948 - March 3, 2023

Marnie was born September 22, 1948, in Vancouver, BC, and passed on March 3, 2023, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 74. Marnie is survived by her husband of 52 years, Stewart; her 2 children, Gregory and Sandra; her 2 grandchildren Theresa Schwab and Emily Polley; as well as her 2 brothers Cliff and Bill Ramsay of the Lower Mainland.

Stewart and Marnie began their life together in Delta, BC in 1971 where they purchased their first home and had their two children. They moved to Kelowna in the summer of 1983 and remained there ever since.

Marnie enjoyed the outdoors and spent much of her time camping, fishing, golfing at Princeton Golf Course, and gardening. Her green thumb was very evident with her large quantities of produce each year and beautiful flowers.

One of her other passions was quilting with her lovely quilting group in West Kelowna. She was so excited about new projects she was starting and took pride in her finished products.

Marnie had a for passion people. Her positive and loving energy could be felt whenever in her presence. Marnie would always welcome anyone to her home and would make you instantly feel like family. Her laugh was contagious and would be heard often which would bring a smile to anyone’s face.

She will be greatly missed but will live on in our wonderful, heartwarming memories.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date.

    Stewart, Sandra and Greg, our deepest sympathy to you and the the rest of your family. I know you will all miss Marnie deeply. We worked together for many years, went on few girls only golf trips, shared many laughs and made some good memories. Marnie was hardworking, fun loving, kind and cared greatly about her family and friends… a very special lady. May all the memories you have made together as a family keep her close to you for now and always. Respectfully, Irene and Chuck Passmore - Irene Passmore

    Stew, Greg and Sandra.
    We were sorry to hear about Marnie's passing. I had the pleasure of working with Marnie for many years. She was smart, funny and a caring person. She was also a master crib player and you were fortunate to have her as your partner at the lunch room cribbage games at the office.
    Our family also had the pleasure of mingling with your family at the Rutland Sports Fields and school gyms over the years, when our children were playing the sports that they loved.
    Please know that Marnie will live on in your thoughts and memories as time moves on, and those memories will continue to sustain you going forward.
