She was predeceased by her loving husband Wayne; parents Jens and Signe Kilden (nee Mo); sister Gladys Black; brothers-in-law Fred Routley and Don McKay.
Marie’s parents were homesteaders from Norway, and she grew up on the farm in Porcupine Plain, SK, before moving to Regina, SK, at the age of 5. She graduated as a nurse with the class of 1960 at the Regina General Hospital. Shortly after that, she met and married Wayne, and they were happily married for 59 years.
Marie and family enjoyed decades of summers at Kenosee Lake with a lovely cottage that remains in the family.
She was proud of her Norwegian heritage and was involved with the Scandinavian Club of Regina. For many years she helped the club organize the Scandinavian Pavilion at Mosaic. Marie was also involved with the United Empire Loyalists through her husband Wayne.
Wayne and Marie enjoyed much travelling together, visiting the Caribbean as well as numerous trips and cruises to Europe, South America and the Pacific. They visited a total of 46 countries, including family trips to Norway to visit relatives and to see the Norwegian homestead.
A Memorial Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. in Speers Family Centre, 2333 Cornwall Street, Regina, SK on Sunday, October 2, 2022.
