It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of our Mum, Marjorie Valerie Ruscoff at the age of 82.

Predeceased by her husband of 33 years, George Ruscoff (1983); grandson, Harold Parsons (2001); and 3 brothers: George, Les and Roy, of England. Marjorie is survived by children: Louise Parsons (Harold), Nova Scotia; Alexandra Van Buskirk (Harry), Lake Cowichan; George Ruscoff (Lori), Nanaimo; Vicki Thompson (Rob), Nanaimo; and Kate Wilson (Mark), Surrey; 14 grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren and her partner of 27 years, Edward Kemp of Nanaimo. Also survived by her sister, Beryl (Bob); brother Ken (Joan), a nephew in the U.S and numerous nieces and nephews in England.

Born in Burnt Oak, England, Marjorie emmigrated to Canada in 1953 with her husband, George and daughter, Louise. After George joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, the family lived in Ontario, Germany, and Prince Edward Island before settling on Vancouver Island in 1964.

The family would like to extend their thanks to the staff at Woodgrove Manor for their compassionate care of Mum during her time there.
