Marion was predeceased by her husband Neil as well as her parents and her two siblings. Marion was the youngest of three children who spent most of her life in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She grew up in the 1930's when things were tough for many people. Although times were hard she had the love and benefit of a close and supportive family, in particular her mother Marion Eaton. Marion and her mother shared a very special relationship and were an important part of each other's lives. Marion was a determined and hard working woman who faced adversity with an amazing inner strength. She worked for a brief period of time with the T.

During the past five years she has been a resident at the Baldur Personal Care Home. She made many friends there who became her extended family.
