She is an Eucharistic Lay Assistant, sings in the choir and when called upon is an amateur actor in Christ Church presentations. Marjorie also currently serves on the Osler Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) and the Peel Regional Police Black Advisory Committee. She enjoys writing and has produced the Scholarship & Recognition Awards Program brochure for the United Achievers’ Club since 2000.
