Born in Glace Bay, she was the daughter of the late Ernest and Christina (Hunter) Snow. Marlie was a kind and compassionate soul. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren with all her heart. She loved watching them play sports, dance competitions, singing and was always their biggest cheerleader. She enjoyed face time with them and was very proud of each and everyone of them. Marlie’s biggest rock was her husband, Jim. They have so much fun together over the years and made lots of great memories. She loved him whole heartedly. We know she will be watching over us and always with a smile.
