 Marjorie Emily Brunn (nee Rosen)

June 23,1922 - September 10, 2017 

On Sunday September 10, 2017 at Tabor Home in Morden, MB Marjorie Brunn aged 95 years, passed away peacefully. 

Marjorie will be lovingly remembered and missed by her children: son, Stanley Brunn, (Aileen) and daughter, Joyce Berriault (Jerry); her four grandchildren, Jolene Powell (Levar); Jason Brunn (Candace); Geoffrey Vieira (Christine) and Ryan Vieira; three great grandchildren and sisters, Evelyn Alwin and Isabel Reichert. She was predeceased by her husband, Roy in 2004 and sister, Edna Reichert. 

Marjorie was born to Ferdinand and Nathalie Rosen in Brown, MB and raised on the family farm in the 1-6 district of Morden. She attended Elk Creek School and Morden High School. As a young woman, she worked at the Royal Bank in Thunder Bay and Morden. In 1946, she married Roy Brunn of Morden and ten years later they purchased a store in Gilbert Plains and moved there with their two young children. They later developed the general store into a Macleods franchise store.  They operated their business side by side until their retirement in 1974, at which time they took up residence in Dauphin. In early retirement, they built a cabin at Clear Lake and spent many wonderful years there with friends and family.  They loved spending time with and spoiling their grandchildren!! They also enjoyed their trips to Hawaii, Texas, and the Maritimes. They were members of the Good Sams and attended several Samborees in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario.  After Roy passed away Marjorie went on a cruise and bus trips with friends. Marjorie was active in the United Church Women's Group, the Gilbert Plains United Church and Dauphin United Church choirs, as well as singing with the Sweet Adeline's.  She was a member of the Kinettes and K-40's and a volunteer for Meals on Wheels. Marjorie bowled in the Dauphin Bowling League and many afternoons were spent playing bridge with her friends.  She participated in activities at the Seniors Club. Marjorie enjoyed entertaining and was always trying new recipes. Delicious baking was her speciality. Marjorie took pride in her home and garden and spent hours tending her beautiful flower garden. In 2011 Marjorie returned to Morden and lived in an apartment for several years. However, with failing health it was necessary for her to move to a nursing home. She resided in the Morden Tabor Home until the time of her death. 

Memorial service at 11:00 a.m. on Monday September 18, 2017 at St. Paul’s United Church with ash interment at Hillside Cemetery. 

A very special Thank- you to the staff and volunteers at the Tabor Home for the kindness and compassion extended towards her. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Marjorie’s memory to the Tabor Home Memorial Fund.
