Marjory Rachel Carrie (Illman) Kaufman of Knollcrest Lodge, Milverton, and formerly of Listowel, peacefully on Monday, October 5, 2020, in her 96th year.

She married the love of her life, Wesley John Kaufman (2007) on December 12, 1942. Survived by her many nieces and nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and great-greats too, treasured friends, and caregivers.

Predeceased by her siblings Dorothy (John) Krugel, Audrey (Harry) Kaufman, Lloyd Illman, Norman Illman, Stanley Illman, and Ralph Illman.

Marjory was the daughter of Henry and Mary (Engler) Illman. She was born and raised in Monkton, until moving to Listowel. She was a long-time and faithful office manager at A&P grocery store. Marjory and Wes enjoyed many years at the cottage in Point Clark they shared with Audrey and Harry.

Marjory’s sharp eye for detail made everything she did and create simply perfect. This was obvious in how she dressed, the great pride and enjoyment she gave and received from the beautiful flowers and plants both inside and outside of her home, and her incredible knitting and crocheting. She shared her knowledge and talents with many.

A private family funeral will be held at the Eaton Funeral Home, Listowel on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Rev. Ralph Dwarika officiating.

Marj was like a grandma to me. I was so lucky to have her as an extended part of my family and for my kids to have her as an extra great grandparent. I was blessed to have her in my life and words cannot express how much I will miss her.

To the Kaufman family, - We are so very sorry to hear this sad news about Marj. We have many wonderful memories of Wes and Marj from our Ideal Supply days. They were a great couple and we enjoyed their company. Marj was a lovely lady. Please know we are thinking about you at this difficult time..... Ross & Brenda Werth

Our deepest sympathy to the Kaufman family.Auntie Marj was a sweetheart to everyone.She was Auntie Marj to everyone on McKenzie St.I spent a lot of time with the 2 Kaufman families in my younger days and loved every minute of it.We had so many laughs and just so much fun all around both at their homes and at the cottage.I certainly have many good memories of them all in my days gone by and I am sure you folks have as well.Keep all the memories close. Love Wayne & Shirley Young.
