January 6, 1927 - February 6, 2016
Marjorie Ballantyne (née McGregor)
Marjorie passed away in Ottawa on February 6, 2016, at the age of 89 years. She was
the devoted wife of the late Earl Ballantyne of Pembroke and a loving Mom to Nora
(John Spence) and Barbara (Tim Bradley). She was also a treasured Nana to Matt
(Alana), Julie and Devon; and great-grandmother to Mallory, Callahan and Sylas.
Marjorie cherished her spunky sisters Milly Chapman, Fran Wersch and Joan Tosh, and
sister-in-law Mabel Ballantyne; and she valued her extended family and friends
throughout the Ottawa Valley. We will remember her quiet but impish sense of humour.
In her honour, donations may be considered to the Ottawa Heart Institute or Calvin
United Church in Pembroke. Visitation will be held at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes,
3440 Richmond Road, Nepean, on Thursday, February 11th , from 11 a.m. until time of memorial service
in the chapel at 12 p.m. (Spring inurnment in Norway Bay.) Thanks to the staff at
Portobello Manor for their kind service and to the compassionate health professionals at
the Ottawa Hospital.
