1943 - 2021

On May 1st, 2021, Memorie Grace Grigg of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her children. She will be forever missed and loved by her daughter Taryn (Steve) and grandchildren Matt and Paige, her son Jeff (Tracie) and grandchildren Jordan and Amanda, her son Joel and grandchildren Alyssa and Logan and step-son Darrin and grandchildren Ashley and Dylan. They were the light of her life. She was predeceased by her husband of 38 years, David. She will be lovingly remembered by her many, many friends and her Australian love with whom she shared her heart and her life, making countless unforgettable memories that she always carried with her. Memorie was born in Outlook, Saskatchewan. She was cherished by her parents, Violet and Barney Johnsrude, as well her beloved brother, Richard (Dick) and dear sister, Mona. She moved several times, finally settling in Burnaby, British Columbia. She attended UBC where she received a Bachelor in Home Economics then went on to a career in teaching. Moose Jaw became her home and there she spent many happy years raising her children on the Grigg family farm and being a valued member of her community. The last decade of her life was a continual adventure of travel and exploration of the world. She spent winters in Mesa Arizona, the fall in Australia and the summers in Moose Jaw with other exotic excursions fit in along the way. She loved every moment of both the place and the people she shared it with. As she said herself, “I had a charmed life.” Our mother had an undeniable light and zest for life. Her laughter filled a room. Her sunshine warmed all she loved. Her talent for entertaining and for bringing people together was legendary. Her courage, strength and grace will not be forgotten. May pansies forever bring you thoughts of her. A celebration of life will be planned for a later date. If you are interested in learning more, please email and leave a comment.
