Marion was born in Saskatchewan and moved to Ontario with her family during the “dirty thirties”. She prided herself on her strong work ethic and her family. She spent many years working in Exeter at Hatter’s Dry Goods, F.A. May and Son and Wuerth Shoes. She loved sports and could always be found watching her beloved Toronto Maple Leafs or Blue Jays. She loved nature and could often be found feeding the blue jays and squirrels. Anyone who visited would be told about the newest squirrel arrivals and the names she had given them. As Marion’s health declined, she moved to Blue Water Nursing Home and the residence and staff became her extended family.
