Marion Joyce King

King, Marion Joyce

February 27, 1927 ~ January 7, 2010


It deeply saddens us to announce that Marion King nee Kirman passed away peacefully at home after a brief but courageous fight with cancer.

Marion was predeceased by her longtime husband Calvin (Cal) in 2007 and brother George. She is survived by her two sisters: Kate Garbutt and June Gittings.


Marion moved to the Comox Valley from Montreal in 1968 and had been a fixture at Glacier Lanes, acting as league secretary for 28 years.


She will be dearly missed by her children: Julia (Norm), Lorne (Karen), Brian and Susan (Gary). Also by her grandchildren: Jason, Sandra, Jeff, Dan, Sarah and her 6 great-grandchildren.


Always razor sharp and full of life until the end, Marion will be deeply missed by all those who knew her and her great sense of humor.


No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Comox Valley SPCA.


Rest in Peace “Ma”
