Marjory Lakewold Kallem

Marjory Lakewold Kallem, 84, passed away on Oct. 4, 2017 at Hospice House in Spokane from complications related to Bulbar ALS.

Marjory was born April 17, 1933 in Provost, Alberta, Canada to Roy and Beatrice Lakewold. She attended Holy Names College and Washington State University on a music scholarship before embarking on a 30-year career as a physical education specialist in District 81, Spokane.
