Marjorie Doris Kopchiak

May 23, 1936 - March 28, 2013


Marjorie Kopchiak passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at the Kimberley Special Care Home.

Born and raised in Fernie, BC, Marj moved to Cranbrook with her family in 1972.  She worked at BC Telephone Co. as a telephone operator until Telus took over.  Marj then chose to stay home and raise her amily.

Marj enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.  She spent a lot of time with her two granddaughters spoiling them until they graduated high school and moved away to college and university.  Marj loved to cook and bake.  She looked forward to preparing Sunday dinners for the family and there was always a fresh batch of cookies in the cookie jar.  Marj loved music.  She was a fantastic piano and accordion player.  She volunteered for many years at the Rocky Mountain Lodge and the Green Home entertaining the seniors.  Marj also enjoyed spending time with her family and friends at the family cabin at Rosen Lake and going to Bonners Ferry with her friends, Beryl and John Chester.  Marj was a kind, loyal and very generous lady, aways eager to help anyone with anything.

Marj will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her daughters, Donna Penner and Laurie (David) Schmideder and her granddaughters Jenna and Jodi Schmideder.  Marj is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.  Marj was predeceased by her parents Mike and Daisy Tymchuk, husband Emil and her son-in-law Ken Penner.

At Marj's request, there will be no funeral service.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of one's choice.

`We don't have you here on earth any longer Mom,

but you will always be in our memories and our hearts forever.
