Many years ago as a young married woman I met Marjorie Landers. I was from the US and married Garth Smith who grew up next door to the Lander's family. Over the next few years we visited Sandford with our growing family of four daughters. They became friends with Mary, Clara, Emma and Ida. "Aunt Marjorie" was special to them, and us. Many years have passed but the memories of the sweet and endearing woman Marjorie Landers has not. Our condolences to the family on your loss. Garth and Ann Smith

Marjorie was a happy joyful woman who changed every place she walked into. I remember how very much she loved her family and the delight that she received being with them. Her presence in our community, Sandford brightened it.
I send Most Sincere Condolences to Mary, Clara, Emma and Ida as well as their families. I pray that God will be with you during your time of sadness.
