She began her life in Kincardine Twp, with her parents Angus and Marie Anne McIver and 3 sisters. She began teaching at age 18 in a one room schoolhouse (grades 1-8) and continued teaching primary grades or special education until she retired in 1985 to look after her husband who was in poor health until his passing. She was an incredible mentor and made a world of positive difference in many young lives. Her students will attest to her patience, kindness and understanding.
While she taught she successfully earned an honours BA from Western University. She then worked with her son to support him in his business until 2021. Fiercely independent and even though she became blind she lived by herself after her husband passed. Marion will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.
