McCaskill, Marjorie Frances, of Vulcan, beloved wife of Bob McCaskill, passed away at the Vulcan Community Health Centre on February 5, 2017 at the age of 91 years.

Marjorie was born on January 1, 1926 in the first Vulcan hospital. The only daughter of Clifford and Marie Love, she completed nursing training at the Calgary General Hospital in 1949 and went on to have a successful nursing career, helping war veterans at the Colonel Belcher Hospital in Calgary. She was married to Robert Douglas McCaskill of Calgary on November 06, 1949 in Vulcan and while most of her married life was spent in Calgary and surrounding area, she returned to Vulcan in retirement in 1996.

Marjorie is survived by her husband Robert, her three children, Deborah, Jim, and Douglas, 8 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild and her brother Frank. While closest to her family, she had a willingness to give freely of her time and through her life supported many community interests.

There will be no funeral service held. A memorial celebrating Marjorie’s life will be held at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, tributes in Marjorie’s memory can be made to the Vulcan Community Health Centre Ladies Auxiliary, Box 299, Vulcan, Alberta, T0L 2B0.

    Tonight when you look up don’t think of them as stars. Think of them as porch lights welcoming your loved one safely home.

    It has been a lot of years since I was a part of your family but I will always think fondly of “Mrs. McCaskill” as she was my second mom for most of my teen years. My thoughts are with all of you.

    It was so nice to have had the privilege to help care for Mrs. McCaskill.
    It was always a delight to share the home visits.
    She made a huge impression on me and will always be remembered.
    She always remarked about the Home Care Aides as her spa ladies!!
    My thoughts are with your family.
