    Colleen,Anna,Paula,Lorraine and John. Today’s service was just as beautiful as the kind and generous soul that Marian was. I worked with Marian for a long time and I have never met anyone so special and who always put everyone before herself. She never had an unkind word to say about anyone. She could brighten your day just with her smile and her wit. I have many great memories that I will treasure forever. She will be missed deeply. My deepest sympathy goes out to you all. Remember all the good times and funny stories and hang on tight to each other. Love to you all. Oh and I will do the 3 things you requested.

    Colleen – Marian was one of a kind for sure. Her service today was lovely, so nice that it was so personalized and he hit every aspect of Marian’s life – her laughter, wittiness, loving individual she was and just a good all round person, she certainly left a mark on everyone she met. Remember all the good times and know she was very special to a lot of people, she will be missed by her family, her WCB family and her many friends.

    Colleen and Family, I was so sorry to hear of Marian’s passing. She was the first person that I met at work and she made such a great impression on me that early morning in August. Such a warm and inviting smile, quick wit and humor, she could have you relaxed and smiling no matter how you were feeling. She was such a beautiful person, inside and out and will be deeply missed by many. My deepest sympathies to you all.

    I am so sorry to hear of Marian’s passing; my condolences to her family. She talked about all of you with so much love.

    I worked with Marian at Manulife and she was always a joy to be around. She had funny little stories to brighten our day and loved to say “work harder, work faster!” She had a pile of work on her desk but always knew where each file and piece of mail was located.

    Marian was truly a beautiful person.

    Colleen & Family – with heartfelt condolences to the family. I am so sorry to hear of Marian’s passing. I worked with Marian for many years at the WCB, she was a true friend and colleague. She was quick witted and had such humor in her spirit, a rarity in this generation. My heart breaks for the ones left behind. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

    Although I knew Marian only briefly and saw her infrequently I am saddened by the loss of such a good and gracious soul. She will be missed in this world that sorely needs more people like her.

    Sincere condolences to each and every one of you. Your hearts are breaking but hopefully you can take some solace knowing that she is in a better place now. Marian was my cousin, my friend, my “other sister”. She was a joy in my life. She was kind, generous, constantly giving to others, witty, funny, so positive – such a beautiful person. She will be so missed by so many. Love to all. Joanne and Lou and family

    John, Anna, Paula, Colleen, Lorraine and families: Bruce and I are deeply saddened to hear of Marian’s passing. She is leaving a void in the family circle that cannot be filled but she has now been embraced in the comforting arms of Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald as well as Donald and Robert. How happy and content she must be feeling. Marian was a treasure not only to each of you but to those of us who had the privilege to know her and call her our friend. Her smile, her laugh, and her love will be missed by so many but treasured memories of her love and a life well lived will remain. God bless each of you during this difficult time. I am sure Marian will hold your hand and guide you through the days ahead with her wonderful sense of humour, love and her fabulous wit. Our sincerest sympathy and love to each of you.
    Bruce and Dale
