Weber, Marjorie “Marge” Mae
December 6, 1928 to August 4, 2019
Marge passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 4, 2019 in Calgary at the age of 90 with her family close by. She was born and raised in Vulcan and spent the majority of her life there.
Marge was a member of the Rebekah Lodge for over 50 years and shared this special part of her life with her mother, Uretta. She was awarded the Decoration of Chivalry for her service with the Rebekahs. Her love of quilting inspired her to join the Kirkaldy Quilters Club and the family greatly appreciates and cherishes the beautiful creations received. She was an active member of the Vulcan and District Historical Society. Her interest in history started with the group that published the first Wheat Country-a History of Vulcan and District and then continued with her involvement in the Archives Committee. She made significant contributions to the creation of the Historical School Site signs, the No. 2 FIS British Commonwealth Training Plan Monument to commemorate the WWII Training School at the Vulcan Airport, and to the design and installation of the Historical Street Signs that were unveiled for the Vulcan 100th anniversary. She was also an avid cribbage player and enjoyed the many hours spent with friends at both the Vulcan and Champion Seniors’ Centres.
She spent her career life of over 30 years with the Vulcan County filling many positions and taking on increased responsibilities in the administration office. During this time she was also very proud to have attained the designation of Professional Administrator with the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators.
She is lovingly remembered by her two daughters, Barbara (Bill) Dickson and Karen (Felix) Martel; four grandchildren, Heather (Sheldon) Racz, Amy (Dallas) Davies, Tracey Bertschy and Dustin Bertschy; and five great grandchildren, Jordan and Ashley (Dustin), Madison (Tracey) and Lauren and Molly (Heather). Marge was predeceased by her mother and father, Arthur and Uretta McIver, and her sister, Muriel Berg.
