Marie Violet Nelson ( Cameron)
April 25th 1934 – May 21st 2009
It is with great sadness that we announce Marie’s passing after a valiant fight against cancer.
Born in River Philip, N.S., Marie moved to the Island, living in both Jordan River and Sooke before moving to the Comox Valley in 1992 to begin her retirement years with her husband Bob Nelson.
Most mornings you’d find Marie at the local coffee shop with friends and at the mall shopping up a storm for the best deals. Wherever she went her little “heel hounds” Maggie and Sammy weren’t far behind, filling her day with sunshine. Marie was a generous soul with a enormous heart. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Marie had one Sister, Audrey, and six brothers: Gordon, Jackie, Freddie, Eddie, David and Ronald. She will be greatly missed by her loving husband Bob Nelson; son Wayne Morrell (Angela) of Sooke; daughter Pam Williams (Jeff) of Courtenay; grandchildren: Megan, Erin (Justin), Devon, Ian, and Emily; great-grandchildren: Tiffany and Stephanie.
There will be a Remembrance of Marie’s life at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Courtenay, 2200 Cliffe Avenue, May 30th at 1:00 pm. Call Jeff for Info 250 207-0314.
In lieu of flowers please donate in Marie’s name to COPS FOR CANCER , “TOUR DE ROCK “.
