Marjorie was very active in the figure skating community and was an active Gold Test Skating Judge. “Always on the go”.
Marjorie & Ross resided in the Summerview area until his passing in 1985.
Marjorie married Harold Gifford on May 6, 1990. They travelled to Mesa, Arizona for 19 years, and really enjoyed being snowbirds. Marjorie was always a kidder and liked to tease you a bit, any chance she could. She had an amazing sense of humor and laser sharp wit.
Marjorie is survived by two sons; Byron and James Kenney, one daughter Beverly (Dale) Wood, granddaughter Misty (Chris) Nagy, Grandson Brian Kenney as well as nieces, nephews, and extended families. She was predeceased by her parents, Charles and Margaret McKee, husbands, Ross Kenney and Harold Gifford, brother, Robert McKee, and sister-in-law, Clare McKee.

She always reserved a special place in her heart for numerous animals as well. Home fashion was a great passion and she spent hours poring over magazines. She was passionate about her work. A job well done filled her with such pride. She retired from The Cypress Group in February of this year.
Siny was predeceased by her father Hermann Wissink in 1971, and her mother Geziena Wissink-Post in 1980.
