  7.   COLES-Marjorie Anna (nee Gienow) passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Monday, June 23, 2008. Born January 4, 1921 on the homestead north west of Balgonie, SK, where she graduated from high school and began a career in banking. In 1941 she was courted by <living> Coles, R.C.A.F., and traveled to Ontario with him when he was called to serve overseas in WWII. During their long distance engagement, Marge worked at a chemical plant in Welland, ON until (his) return in 1945. They were married in Niagra Falls, ON on April 19, 1945 and soon after purchased a dairy farm north east of Balgonie. Together they were honored as Master Dairy Farmers in the mid nineteen seventies. In retirement, their home remained on the family farm and they recently celebrated 63 years of marriage. Marge was an accomplished athlete at first base and home run hitter in the Ladies B League Softball. In winter she excelled at ladies and mixed curling. Her later years gave Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League an avid armchair coach. Marge was a passionate "giver" enriching the lives of others through her church, the Balgonie Ladies Community Club, the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation and numerous community and provincial organizations. Her efforts were recognized with many awards. Marge was often referred to as the "Matriarch" by her many extended family members. She was predeceased by her parents Samuel Gienow and Anna Mary Gienow (nee Paul); brother Howard Gienow; sister-in-law Evelyn Gienow; brother-in-law John Hagley; sister-in-law Edna Clare, brother-in-law Jack Cruickshank and brother-in-law Lawrence Mauch.
