It is with great sadness that the family of Marjorie Irene Classen (Enns) announces her passing from a tragic accident on January 23rd, 2020 at the age of 67 years old.
Marj was born in Rosthern, Saskatchewan on December 12th, 1952 to John and Selma Enns. She grew up on a farm near Carrot River with her 5 siblings. She graduated from Rosthern Junior College and later attended SIAST in Saskatoon for her nurses training.
Marj Enns married Gordon Classen on November 4th, 1972. Marj and Gord resided on the Classen family farm near Aylsham where they raised their three children Bryce, Greg, and Lori.
Gord and Marj sold their family farm in the summer of 2018 and moved to Saskatoon. Marj worked at the Carrot River Hospital/Health Centre for 45 years. She truly enjoyed her job and recently retired in October 2019. These life changes were bittersweet to her but she was very excited to start the next chapter in her life.
Marj loved life and lived it to the fullest. She made the most of every day and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Her passions and talents were playing piano, cooking, and baking. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, gardening, music, travelling, and spending her summers at Tobin Lake. She stayed active by walking, golfing, kayaking, and most recently playing pickle ball.
Marj had a selfless personality as she enjoyed caring for others. She would often deliver fresh baking unexpectedly to friends and family and loved hosting meals at her home. She had a natural energy that put a smile on everyone’s face whether it was a stranger she just met or a close friend.
Her family was her focus. She was their biggest fan in sports and in life. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Marj was beautiful inside and out and sincerely cared for all the people who were in her circle of life. She will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her.
Marj will be lovingly remembered by her husband Gord of 47 years, sons Bryce (Lise) and Greg (Susan), daughter Lori, grandchildren Ethan and Hunter, mother Selma Enns, siblings Rick (Jackie) Enns, Don (Elviera) Enns, Bonnie Hoffman, Evelyn (Greg) Rieder, Rod (Judy) Enns.
Marj was predeceased by her father John Enns, mother-in-law Margaret Classen, father-in-law Herman Classen, brother-in-law David Hoffman, niece Lindsay Enns and nephew-in-law Jeffrey Dennis Sylvester.
