MARJORIE ELAINE LITCHFIELD, beloved wife of the late Melvin Mulholland, passed away Thursday, October 9, 2014 at Claresholm, Alberta in her 95th year. She is survived by daughter Kathy (Dr. Ralph Oler), sons Brian (LeeAnn), David (Elaine) and daughter-in-law Betty-Jean. Grandchildren: Robert, Karen, Kandi, Kristen, Jamie, Michael, Ryan, Siobhan, Kellee, Erin, Dave, Ramona, Jordan, Janna, Laurel, Cindy, Sylvia, Barbara; 62 great grandchildren, and 9 great great grandchildren (with 2 more on the way). A sister Lorraine Raisor and brother-in-law Clarence Hunter survive her. She was predeceased by her husband Melvin, son Larry, and her parents Floyd and Ethel Litchfield. Marjorie was born in Raymond, Alberta January 18, 1920. After High School, she attended Business college in Calgary and married Melvin Mulholland from Claresholm June 5, 1940 in the Cardston Alberta Temple. They farmed east of Claresholm, living most of their married life on the \”Starline\”. Marjorie worked hard on the farm; driving the combine for harvest was one of her favourite things to do. After retiring to Claresholm, she kept busy volunteering at the Museum, Hospital Auxiliary and spending countless hours helping others, especially the love of her life — her grandchildren. Marjorie was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving unselfishly wherever she could. Melvin passed away in April 2002, and later she moved to the Porcupine Hills Lodge where she made many friends and loved her association there. In 2009 she moved to the Willow Creek Continuing Care Centre, where kindness and gentle care was extended to her. The Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, CLARESHOLM CHAPEL, 4924-3 Street East, with Bishop Joe Toone officiating. Friends may meet the family prior to the service at the church from 1:00 to 1:45 p.m.
