Biggins, Marjorie

Marjorie Biggins passed away peacefully with family by her side at the Meaford Hospital on Tuesday, August 30, 2022 in her 99th year.

Born in England on January 1, 1924, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Gladys Maxey.

Marjorie was predeceased by her beloved husband B. Eric Biggins.

She was the loving mother of Michael, Pamela, Helen, Judith, Robert, Gerry and Michelle, and was predeceased by her son Philip.

Marjorie was the proud grandmother, great and great-great grandmother to almost 30 beautiful grandchildren.

She will be remembered fondly by her daughter-in-law Sue Ellen Briggs (nee VanKoughnut), her in-laws Ken and Phoebe Biggins, Lawrence Biggins, her life long friend Eric Rigby and the many friends she has made in her lifetime.

Marjorie started her career in the British Civil Service and ended her working life with almost 50 years as a Real Estate Broker  on the shores of Georgian Bay.  She and Eric chose this area to raise their family and call home.  After an illustrious dance with life, she always saw the glass as half full, never half empty and left us to reunite with her loved ones who have passed before her.

Family will receive friends at the Ferguson Funeral Home on Thursday, September 8, 2022 from 6 until 8 p.m..  All are welcome to attend a funeral service at Christ Church Anglican in Meaford on Friday, September  9, 2022 at 11 o’clock, with a reception following.  Interment will take place at Lakeview Cemetery.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of Marjorie’s family. I always found Marjorie very interesting to chat with as I found she always expressed sincere interest in how I was doing and with life in general. When we did “cross paths”, Marjorie always greeted me by name and though our conversations may have been brief, they felt very meaningful. I’m glad to have had opportunity to “cross paths” with Marjorie, even ever so seldom. What an incredible life Marjorie lived. God Bless.
