1941 ~ 2011
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dear sister, aunt, and friend.
Marcia was predeceased by her parents John and Marguerite, and brother Gregory. She is survived by her brothers: Michael (Shirley), Paul (Judy), David (Sheila), and Peter (Judy), as well as many nieces and nephews. She is lovingly remembered by her family and numerous friends from Pinawa, Winnipeg, Erin, Ontario, Toronto, and Montreal.
Marcia was born in Winnipeg. She attended school at St. Alphonsus and St. Mary’s Academy, and completed her education at the University of Manitoba with an Education Degree. She excelled in teaching and leadership at Christ the King School and St. Amant Centre. She moved to Ontario to continue her career in Education with the Catholic School Board in Guelph, Ontario. She had a profound effect on students and co-workers, and they continued to seek her friendship and guidance.
Marcia devoted her life to caring for others.
When Marcia retired and moved back to Winnipeg to be close to family, she “discovered the secret” of Pinawa. She fell in love with the people, community, and wildlife and made it her home.
The family would like to thank the Grace Hospital and Intensive Care Unit staff for their kindness and care.
A Memorial Service was held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, December 9, at Sobering Funeral Chapel, Park Avenue East in Beausejour.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marcia’s memory to a charity of your choice.Print This Obituary & Condolences
