My condolences to Margorie’s family and friends. Marjorie took a chance on me, this 19 year old girl straight out of college. She saw something in me that I didn’t know existed. She hired me as an intermediate clerk steno in the General Office and nurtured me and encouraged me. When Dr. Roberts came back with his newly minted doctorate and needed a secretary, she sent me on my way to fill that position. Without her support and encouragement, I wouldn’t have finished my career at MUN as a dean/director.

My family and I will never forget how good a friend Marjorie was to our parents, in particularly our mother. We tagged along as teenagers on a trip mom and Marjorie took together to southern Germany. In 1970. We still have several photos of Marjorie over the years.
Our condolences to the family.. she was so proud of everyone and their achievements

Lovingly remembering Marjorie… from our early days, a good friend and we’ve always kept in touch. She was my bridesmaid and Godmother to my daughter, Linda.

How fortunate we are to have known such an exceptional person as Marjorie. She was a dear friend and support to our mother Emmie Lockyer (Aunt Emmie) and to so many other people. Her giving to others could never be fully written. Volunteer work already mentioned in other messages, driving patients to the Cancer Clinic for their treatments for years, visiting our cousin Marion who was suffering from dementia and spending time painting Marion’s fingernails, delivering meals to ill and shut-in people, and her volunteer work with the church are only a glimpse of the many selfless things Marjorie did. She always thought of others first and it showed in so many ways. She will be missed.

To the Dodge and Frampton families,
Melvin and I knew Marjorie for many years. Melvin through his time working in the Registrars Office at MUN and myself, on behalf of Nfld. Telephone when visiting to reconcile the accounts. I believe Marjorie also met her husband, Fred, as he too represented other areas with the telephone company.
We are also good friends with Marjorie’s cousin Cliff and his wife Janice. We’ve been privileged to be in her company many times over the years.. She was always an interesting and devoted person no matter what she was involved in. Rest in peace Marjorie.
Melvin & Linda Earle

Our deepest sympathies. Marjorie was like family to us. She was a wonderful friend to our mom, Carmel, and our family. She knew us, Donnalee and Michael, our whole lives and had a significant influence on us, especially since we grew up just down the street from her on Grenfell Ave. At Summervillle Condos mom and Marjorie saw each other daily and enjoyed too-many-to-count meals and card games together. She was such a great support to mom after our dad died and during mom’s sickness – and such a big support to us during those times, too. It won’t be the same going “home” for a visit and not spending time with Marjorie. She will be greatly missed. Our heartful condolences.

My sincere condolences to the Frampton and Dodge families. I vividly remember Marjorie in her leadership role at MUN in charge of Telecom’s and other important thing.s….. and I, dispatched by Nfld Tel. at regular intervals , met with her in her office to talk about service levels and corrective actions in areas she felt were not up to scratch. They were not easy meetings! She was firm but always fair and understanding. Rest in Peace Marjorie.

She was always Aunt Marjorie to me, my Godmother, and an inspiration to me all my life.

Heartfelt condolences to the Dodge family. George and I had many conversations with Marjorie over the years at Uncle Jehu’s house. Her curiosity and intellect had us enjoying a friendship of mutual interest in many different things. May she rest in peace with Uncle Jehu.

Hugs to her family,
Karen Pottle and George Hache

Condolences to Stephen and Sandra and family who’s unique relationship with Marge was a source of joy and entertainment over their entire lives together. Condolences as well to all the extended family and to everyone who had the pleasure of having had Marge touch their lives over the years.

Condolences to Marjorie’s family. She was very much respected and loved by all of us in the Navy reserve, where she trained us. She was a lovely person who cared for others.

Sincere condolences to all of Marjorie’s family and friends .although I have not had contact with her for awhile .I did have the privilege of meeting and knowing her.

RIP Marjorie

Sending my thoughts to Marjorie’s family. I knew her many, many years ago when I was a teenager. I admired her then as a very compassionate and accomplished woman and realize, after reading her obituary, she did much more and lived her life to the fullest. May she rest in peace.

Today we lost a very dear friend & longtime volunteer, Marjorie Frampton. She started volunteering before Ronald McDonald House opened in 2012 helping with whatever was needed / from helping organizing the house, helping in the charity office to helping with fundraising events – just to name a few. In 2018 she was recognized for her volunteering with a Helping Hand Award.

Marjorie, your smiling face, love of life, sense of humour and words of wisdom will be missed by us all ❤️💛 Sending our sincere condolences to her family & loved ones.

Today I lost a dear old friend Marjorie Frampton
A friendship for nearly 30 years.
Condolences to her family and friends.

I have no words to express how much I will miss this incredible lady.
RIP ❤️😭

Our deepest sympathies go out to all of Madge’s family! Liz nee (Chancey)jackson and Victoria jackson

Aunt Marge was an “influencer” long before social media. She was a bundle of energy until the end and a role model for many women and men over the years. She never failed to leave an impression on those she met. I was lucky enough to spend 2 weeks in Africa with her, the last big trip she would do, capping off a life-time love of travel. She will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by many.
