Marion was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where she met and married the love of her life in 1951.  They were together until his passing in 2015.  Family camping trips when her children were young were a summer staple.  In retirement, they enjoyed their RV in Florida, watching baseball games and were patrons of the Orpheus Theatre, but their greatest joy was spending time with their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  She wrote poetry and knit generously for family, friends and hats for the preemies at the Queensway Carleton Hospital.  She volunteered many years with the Girl Guides as a Leader and Camp Commissioner.  She had a huge heart and will be greatly missed.
