Deloris Marjean DeMille (King)

She went by Marjean and was as unique as the name that her parents created for her- there will never be another one like Marjean.

Born in Galt July 1st, 1930 to Ernie and Jean DeMille into a large and loving extended family, Marjean married her high school sweetheart, Jack King. After the birth of their first two children, they sold everything so that Jack could return to school to become an Anglican minister. They then embarked on an extraordinary ministry working as a team which took them to London, Lucknow, Walkerton, Windsor, Kincardine and Brantford. Upon retirement, Marjean returned to Kincardine for 30 wonderful years. She touched so many lives along the way it’s quite remarkable- Marjean loved many people and many people loved her. She was bold, progressive and philosophical long before it was fashionable. She loved to debate and she loved to sing. Every parish was happy to have her there for many reasons, one of which was her lovely voice.

There isn’t room to list her accomplishments and all of the organizations she belonged to, but her commitment and contribution to the Anglican Church was lifelong and genuine as was her deep and unwavering faith.

Where Marjean most shone was as a mother, grandmother and great grandmother – she was the centre of our family and we all knew and appreciated her deep and unconditional love. She took time with each of us, always treating children as the intelligent little people that they were. She was strong, loving and kind and always put her family first.

Marjean leaves behind her children Greg King, Kathy and Ray Buehlow, Nancy King, Paul and Wendy King and Jane Kaminsky, predeceased by her son in law David. A brother Dwight DeMille and her grandchildren Leia, Lauren, Jamie, Carey, Molly, Tessa, Grace and Peter as well as 7 great grandchildren. She also leaves her dear Tom Hanks, who became her loving companion the last few years of her life.

The family asks that any donations in memory of Marjean be made to the Church of the Messiah and they will be holding a private service in the near future.

We will miss Marjean and feel blessed to have had her in our lives, but we also know that she had a long and wonderful life and for that we will be forever thankful.
