Marjorie O’Malley

In the early morning hours of Saturday, July 15, 2017, Marjorie left this earth to join her one true love, her husband, Sgt. James O’Malley, in heaven. She was born October 20, 1929 to Peter and Anne Pasaluko in Pine Falls, MB. She is survived by her children, Karen, Susan (Garry) and Michael (Sara); her grandchildren, Erin, Alison (Todd), Patrick, Zoe and James; great-grandchildren, Asmara, Maddex, Paxton and Aaron; her sisters, Patricia, Dorothy and Christine and sister-in-law, Alice. She was predeceased by her brother, Larry. Marjorie graduated from the St. Boniface School of Nursing as a registered nurse in 1950. She enjoyed nursing in various hospitals in Manitoba and later in Redvers, SK. She married James on June 1, 1957 and became the wife of an RCMP member. They were posted to five communities in Manitoba until Jim’s accidental death in the line of duty in 1970. Marjorie and her children moved to Redvers, SK where she lived until she moved to Saskatoon, SK in 2009. She was honoured to receive the Second Man Award in 2013 recognizing the contribution of an RCMP wife in rural postings. Marjorie was very involved with the Catholic Women’s League and was a member for 60 years. She was a devoted mother and shouldered the responsibility of raising her children alone with great dignity and pride. Family and friends were always important to her and there are many fond memories of time spent together. Marjorie cherished her close relationship with her sisters. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed playing bridge. In her later years she looked forward to visits from family and friends. She will be deeply missed by everyone who knew her. The Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, July 24, 2017 at Holy Spirit Roman Catholic Church (114 Kingsmere Place) in Saskatoon. The Rite of Committal was held at the RCMP Cemetery at Depot in Regina at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society.
