SALKELD, Marjorie Alice Constance

September 19, 1924 – February 24, 2024


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marge (also known as Marjorie, Mum, Grandma and Nan) on Saturday, February 24, 2024, just shy of 100 years of age. She passed away peacefully at her residence with family by her side.


Left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Janice Salkeld (Jim Phillips), Sandra (Kelvin Menzies), Verna Salkeld (Chris Connell), Sharon Salkeld (Rick Hammer); and their many loved ones including, 8 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren, along with several nieces and nephews. Mum was predeceased by her husband, Ralph; great granddaughters, Kya and Rosalina; granddaughter, Janelle; son-in-law, Nelson; and her daughter, Sylvia.


Mum was born September 19, 1924 in London, ON and was raised in the Nipawin area. She eventually moved to Saskatoon, where she met Dad (Ralph) Salkeld. They were married in November 1946.


She and dad farmed at Isham, SK and they raised their five daughters there. They left the farm in 2000 and moved to Saskatoon. They shared almost 66 years together until Dad’s passing in 2012.


Anyone that knew Mum, knew what a positive attitude she had about life. She had so many hobbies but her biggest interest and focus was the love of her family.


Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations in Mum’s honour may be made to the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital 1- 345 Third Avenue South, Saskatoon, SK S7K 1M6 or the Salvation Army 38 Bateman Crescent, Saskatoon, SK S7H 3C4.


A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. at Hillcrest Funeral Home (210 Wess Rd.). Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting
