Marjorie Laltoo

Marjorie Ethel Laltoo passed away peacefully at McNair Manor on July 29, 2017, at the age of 101 years old. Pre-deceased by her husband, Ralph Laltoo, she is survived by her children Heather (Ron Ferguson), Hayden (Sharon Stevens), and Hans (Mary MacBeath), and her beloved grandchildren Gregory (Indri Purwana) and Alexandra Ferguson, Devin and Reanna Laltoo, and Andrea Laltoo and Lindsay Laltoo (Aaron Sellers). Marjorie is also survived by many nephews and nieces who have settled in Canada, the United States, England, Wales, Europe, and Trinidad, West Indies.
Marjorie was born on December 31, 1915, in Freeport on the Caribbean island of Trinidad to parents Ezekiel and Jane Mulchansingh. She was the sole survivor of a large family of siblings which included brothers Hubert, Rowdon, and Winston, and sisters Laura, Winnifred Deonarine, Violet Bhagirah, Claudia, Carmen Rajkumar-Maharaj, and Sylvia Yamin-Ali. She had an amazing career as an educator, having taught at her alma mater of Naparima Girls High School in San Fernando, and Holy Name Convent in Port of Spain in Trinidad.
Marjorie immigrated with her family to Canada in 1970, settling in the Town of Shelburne, Nova Scotia, where she embraced a new culture. She became a member of the Trinity United Church in Shelburne, and joined the local chapter of the IODE. After eleven years in Shelburne, Marjorie moved to Moncton, New Brunswick, upon her husband’s retirement from a teaching career. Here she greeted the arrival of grandchildren, revelled in family life, enjoyed gardening, and entertained visiting relatives and friends. She became an active member of Mount Royal United Church and sang in their choir for many years. Marjorie also joined an IODE chapter, under whose auspices she regularly welcomed newly sworn-in citizens to her adopted country of Canada.
Marjorie’s life was celebrated with a visitation at Fair Haven Funeral Home from 9:30am to 11:00am followed by a memorial service there that was held at 11:00am on Thursday, August 3, followed by internment at Fair Haven Cemetery. The family of Marjorie would especially like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to the exceptional team of caregivers at McNair Manor for their devotion to Marjorie in making her final days comfortable and serene. Marjorie Laltoo’s was indeed a life well-lived. Arrangement entrusted with Fair Haven Funeral Home, 1177 Salisbury Road, Moncton (506) 852-3530.
