In addition, she will be missed by her many cousins, nieces, great-nieces and great-great nieces, nephews, great-nephews and great-great-nephews and many friends.

Marion had a very colorful, historical past that included relations to Louis Riel and Gabriel Dumont.  Along with one of the tallest men in the world (Giant), Edouard Beaupre (Grandmother’s first cousin), reaching 8 feet, 3 inches.  Marion was so very loving and compassionate.  She was the glue in many, many of our lives.  She may have not been the best with names but that was okay because everyone was her “Honey”.  Marion and Peter were married for 56 years.  They were married in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.  She worked for many hard years that included CNIB and Zellers as the café manager in Edmonton; P&M Fun Centre, Ernie’s Place and Mickey’s Pub in Kelowna.  Her hobbies included bingo and bowling.  We will never forget how she loved to throw gatherings and dinner parties. Her Christmas spread was the Best and enjoyed by so many of us for many years.  Also, all those Father’s Day family picnics!  Marion and cousin, John Zayonce, would spoil us all with organizing and BBQing for the whole lot of us.

Marion has touched so many of us and will continue to be the light igniting our hearts forever and ever.
