Marion will be remembered for her great ability to do beautiful knitting, crochet, and other sewing projects. She was also a great cook and baker. Nothing pleased her more than creating a full course meal for her family and friends and ending the night with a game of cards.
She also loved to travel in their camper van and camp with family and friends. She also loved fishing and snowmobiling.
Cherished memories were made with her family and friends at their cottage in Point Clark which they owned for over 50 years.
Marion and Harvey had a large, wonderful circle of friends known as the crew.
