Marion Sigrid Sharpe (nee McCulloch) of Pine Falls, Manitoba died November 5 just 11 days shy of her 91st birthday.
She was predeceased by her mother and father, Esther and Donald and her brother Carl. She is lovingly remembered by her brother Tom.
For over 70 years, Marion loved, tended to, argued with and accompanied husband Bill on life’s adventures. For her five children, Gaye (Keith), Kim (Lynn), Kelly (Joyce), Bill (Donnalee) and Tracy (Raymond), she acted as caregiver, confessor, defender and encourager all their lives. Her grandchildren, Danny, Larry, Christie, Robin, Sara, Mackenzie, Megan, Caleb, Billy, David, Jennifer, Michael, Jeremy, Patrick, Tess and Adam – never lacked for a listening ear or to be greeted by their favorite meal or dessert. Her great-grandchildren Kylor, Kyliah, Marcus, Nicholas, Terry, Dylan, Riley, Zoe, Taya, Cameron, Grace, Reese, Ethan, John and Arthur were never forgotten on birthdays and Christmas. She was eagerly awaiting a new great-grandchild at Christmas.
In the truest sense, Marion was a homemaker. A warm bed, an extraordinary meal, the best pie ever, laughter and lively conversation greeted family, friend and stranger alike. She had a fierce passion for family and a tender heart for Manitoba, especially Pine Falls. She served this community in countless ways but especially through her work with the Rebekah Lodge and Pine Falls United Church.
The family is grateful for the wonderful care of her homecare workers and of the staff at Pine Falls General Hospital.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 9 at the Pine Falls United Church.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pine Falls United Church, Box 597, Pine Falls, MB R0E 1M0.
