Florence Margery “Marge” Carr

Florence Margery “Marge” affectionately “Nanna Banana” – passed away peacefully at Chilliwack General Hospital on October 25, 2006 after a brief illness. Marge was born in Vancouver on August 9, 1916, the fourth child of Will and Elizabeth Hunter. She was predeceased by her dear husband Stan in 1986 and her three brothers Bill, Don and Jack. She is survived by her daughters Anne Dickey (Gerry) and Sue Severud; grandchildren Linda Fraser (Ted), Mary Ellen Meyers (Shane), Jason Severud (Theresa) and Carlie Severud (Neil); great grandchildren Ian Fraser, Ellery and Hailey Meyers, Erick and Adrianna Severud as well as her sister-in-law Helen Hunter and many nieces and nephews. Marge trained as a beautician in her youth and owned her own business as a young woman. She gave up hairdressing after Sue was born and was a long time employee of Woodward’s Stores. She and her husband Stan lived in Vancouver and then Burnaby, but after his death she lived briefly in Coquitlam then bought a house at Cultus Lake in 1992 where she resided until very recently. She loved her family dearly and her happiest times were spent with the extended family, including many family dogs, singing along while Stan played the banjo. Marge recently celebrated her 90th birthday with the family and a good time was had by all. Memorial service was held October 28, 2006 at McLean’s Funeral Serrvices. Her ashes will be taken to Galiano Island to be scattered on the beach where Stan’s ashes were taken 20 years ago.
