With sadness we announce the passing of Marjory Lillian Zimmerlee (nee Grinder) on Dec. 17, 2012 at Fischer Place in 100 Mile House, with her family by her side.
Marj was born at Big Bar Creek on Sept. 22, 1935, one of 10 children of Henry and Annie Grinder. Marj was predeceased by sisters Vi, Jean and Dolly and brothers Ralph, Floyd and Howie as well as her parents, her oldest daughter Carol and grandson Jimmy.
Marj and Charlie Zimmerlee (deceased) spent many happy years in the Big Bar and Clinton area ranching and raising their family.
Marj enjoyed gardening, berry picking, canning, hunting and river fishing. She loved large family gatherings, playing cards, bingo and going to the casino. She was a strong believer in the healing powers of roots and berries.
In 1998, Marj met Rob Dobbin and they shared eight years together before Ron passed away in 2006. Marj became active with friends and many activities in Clinton.
Marj leaves behind six children: Curtis (Monica), Ellie (Wayne), Mervin, Debbie (Teddy), Elaine (Dale), and Pauline (Dale); sister Bernice (Jack); brothers: Roy and Kenny (Colleen); as well as 17 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren (with one more on the way); and many, many cousins, nieces, nephews and good friends.
Marj will be missed by many, but will always be remembered through stories that we share with smiles and lots of laughs.
Celebration of Life will be held on Feb. 16, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at the Clinton Memorial Hall. Marj’s final resting place will be the King’s Lake Cemetery, Hwy. 97, south of Clinton.
