It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Marion on July 18, 2011 in Cumberland, BC. Born in England on March 19, 1925; Marion immigrated to Canada with her husband and eldest daughter in 1949. In 1967 the family moved from Calgary, Alberta to the Comox Valley that she came to love so much.

Marion worked for several years at Lavers Department Store and Graham’s Jewelers. She will be best known for her interest in gardening and involvement with the Horticultural, Rhododendron and Eagles Clubs. Mom and dad enjoyed many cruises during their retirement years.

Marion is survived by: her son John, daughters Sue (Doug), Janet (Tony), Marion (David), Debbie (Eric), Laurie (Wendel) and son in law Bob and by numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is predeceased by: her husband Bob, brother Norman Brown and daughter Jennifer Lynne Smith.

She was devoted to her family and looked forward to the many large family gatherings. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff and volunteers of unit 3 in Cumberland Lodge.

There will be no service by request. In lieu of flowers donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or Comox Valley Hospice Society would be appreciated.
