Sadly, our dear mother died at VGH in her 99th year after a short illness. Predeceased by her husband Kelly and sister Dorothy Ellis. Heartbroken and left to grieve are: her brother Bill Plumb; children; Bill, Pat (Gary), Bob (Kathy), and Mark (Gail). Grandchildren; Karen, Kevin (Jen), Meriah (Scott), Suzanne (Jeremy), Krystal, Jodie, Meagan and her great-grandchildren, Kiana, Lukas, Torin, Tayah, Leeyela and Bishop.
Marion was born in Winnipeg and moved with her family to Victoria BC. Raised by a single mother during the Depression, she attended Margaret Jenkins and Victoria High School and graduated as a RN from Royal Jubilee Hospital. She took pride in her nursing career.
Marion met her husband Kelly at a dance during the War and raised a family of four in Victoria. Devoted parents, and active in their children’s Catholic upbringing, they were a role model for us all.
Mannie had class. She was an unpretentious down to earth homemaker, who found life exciting and enjoyed it with style and elegance. Marion loved children, especially her own. She cherished her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was a joy to be with and will be missed by everyone who knew her.
Private family internment and memorial. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallgardens.com.
