McLAUGHLIN, MARJORIE A. (CARTER) – 1936 – 2012 – The family of Marjorie McLaughlin I s deeply saddened to announce her passing at the Saint John Regional Hospital on Tuesday, June 12, 2012. Born in Frosty Hollow, New Brunswick, she was the daughter of the late Josiah and Margaret (Tower) Carter. Marjorie is survived by her daughter, Margaret, son-in-law Anthony Hardt and three grandchildren, Andrew, Alex and Victoria who were the joy of her life. She will be missed by her sister, Mario Carter of Sackville, special sister-in-law and friend, Beverly Oagles of Grand Bay-Westfield, three brothers-in-law, Roy, Murray and Donald and several nieces and nephews. Marjorie was predeceased by her parents, one sister, Geraldine Weldon of Sackville and her loving husband Roger. Marjorie’s career as a registered nurse (SJGH Class of 1957) spanned many years in obstetrics and in later years she brought her gifts of joy, compassion and caring to the field of Geriatric Nursing until her retirement. Marjorie & her late husband Roger had a wide and wonderful circle of friends from those with life long memories to new friends that Marjorie had a knack for gathering. You could always count on an open door and an open cupboard. Marjorie loved to cook and bake and many of us will miss the thoughtful care packages she would prepare for us, always remembering each person’s particular favourite. A great sense of humour and a personality that always showed genuine caring and interest in others, created a circle of friends, extended family and honorary children for Marjorie. The concern and support of the wonderful group of special loved ones during her recent illness is a testament to her ability to make everyone feel special and loved.
