DEBUC, Marjorie Laura Newman - On Sunday, October 17, 2021 at 1:40 p.m. our mother, in her 84th year, lost her battle with breast cancer and left her earthly home to sing with the angels in heaven.
Marjorie (Madge as she was lovingly called by her siblings) was born in Christiana, Jamaica on Monday, June 7th, 1937. She had 5 siblings Gerald, Vernie, Hope, Edgar and Muriel and many nieces and nephews in the Newman family.
Madge and Gerald had a wonderful life with their adoptive parents Gladys & Charles Parkes. She shared many happy memories of childhood, ones we will cherish in our memories forever.
Marjorie fell in love and married John James DéBuc and ventured to Canada in 1969 to build a life for the new family they had started. Together they had 5 children, Mary (husband Peter), Elizabeth (deceased), Patricia (deceased), Christine (husband Patrick) & Michael.
Marjorie had a smile that could light up any room, and a heart full of love for her family. She was very proud of her Grandchildren Simon (wife Jazzmin), Ashlee & Justin and was blessed to have two Great Grandchildren David & Lydia. She was very loved by her friends, and extended family.
A special thank you to the staff at Carefree Lodge who helped make her journey as comfortable as possible.
She fought a valiant battle, she never complained, she always tried to be alert and happy when we spoke or had a visit. She lived for the moment, she loved for a lifetime and forever we will love you. She might be gone in the physical presence, but her memory will live on in all our hearts.
Marjorie is resting at Humphrey Funeral Home, Toronto her funeral service will be held on Saturday, October 23rd at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or Diabetes would be greatly appreciated in her memory.
