Dec 20, 1933-Sep 4, 2020
Marion was born in Clarenceville, PQ, and brought up Chateauguay and Stanstead. After secondary school in Westmount and Stanstead, Marion earned a BSc(Hc) at Macdonald College of McGill University and during summers worked as a telephone switchboard operator. It was at Macdonald that she met her future husband, Roger, and they enjoyed 65 years of marriage. After Macdonald, she taught home economics at Smith’s Fall (Ont) Secondary for a year. Marriage and a move to the Lower Mainland of BC led to a job as a laboratory technician in the Red Cross blood lab, eventually becoming chief technician. A further move to Chase and the adoption of two children made Marion a mother. A spell as a bank teller, followed by partnership in Cloud 9 Fabrics led to custom dressmaking and the sewing of many quilts filled her days. Later years were enlivened by weekly Bridge games and a small circle of friends.
Always friendly, Marion was a good mother and a great partner,
who will be forever missed.
