I have many happy memories of Aunt M. She was and still is my favourite Aunt. She always gave good sound advice .. "can't" is not a word!
Her energy in everything she did was just incredible.
She is an inspiration to us all!
Whilst we are all getting older, I aim to be like Aunt M in my later years, always on the go!
I'm sure she was met by many when she passed over and am happy that she is reunited with Uncle Don.
Darren will miss making her laugh and the conversations they had on just about everything...

Greatly saddened to hear of the sudden passing of my dear Marion. Marion, I can honestly say, was like a second mother to me. She has changed my diapers, so enough said! For over 60 years our families shared dinners, tea, visits, Christmases, birthdays, camping, boating, you name it together! Too many memories to share here.
She was a kind, loving, humorous soul, and always ready with a delicious plate of jam tarts for homecomings and milestones. My heartfelt condolences go out to Barbara, Steven, Paul, and extended family. Marion has gone to see Don now, and I’m sure that greatly pleases him. You are missed, Marion.

“Mimi,” as we lovingly referred to Marion, has been an adopted mother and grandmother to the Perkins family since before I was born - over 33 years. Not only did she help raise me and my sister Lindsey, but she was a cornerstone for our family.
No words can adequately capture the depth of her significance to us, but it would be a disservice not to mention her unrivaled wit, inexhaustible patience, fierce devotion to the community and uncompromising loyalty to all those in her life.
Mimi’s understated disposition was a distinguishing aspect of her charm and disarming personality. No matter the occasion, Mimi always had levity filled wisdom to carry you through.
Mimi was a uniting force, both within the family and to the community at large. After decades of consistently volunteering for tens of hours a week at the thrift stores and hospice, the newspaper ran an article on our unsung hero. When asked by the paper why she continued to do all the grunt work, she responded with her typically wry wit, “there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians.”
There are too many aspects of her that we will miss to list here, but to add to her list of clever remarks:
“Just ask your magic machine” – referring to the iPhone
“Boys will be boys.”
And of course, if you managed to achieve something noteworthy, no matter how small, an emphatic - “Good Show!”
So raise a cup a tea to this remarkable woman, who lived an extraordinary life.
Mimi, you will be forever loved, adored and missed.

Marion was one of the first people I met when Taddy and I moved to Port St. Lucie 39 years ago, and from that time on she was a true and loyal friend, kind, caring, always ready with a helping hand, and with a wicked, sometimes naughty, sense of humor! She came to love "her" cat, Misty, who she inherited when her friend Kay passed away. "Maid Marion" and I rarely missed a Saturday at Fort Pierce Downtown Farmers' Market and if she were not with me it was always "where is Marion?". Those she met there considered her a friend and the outpouring of love and sympathy I received when I told them they wouldn't see their friend again is a testament to her lovely personality and the way they felt about her. We also made a pilgrimage to Bok Tower Gardens each year to see the Christmas decorations; one of Edward Bok's best known sayings is:- "Make you the world a bit better or more beautiful because you have lived in it". Marion did.

She got to spend time with us all in England when she came home for a visit, meeting all of her nieces and nephew, great nieces and nephews, and one great,great niece
My family and I would like to send our love and condolences to Paul, Steven and Barbara.

Marion was my mum's cousin.
She was such a lovely person and enjoyed her visits over here in England.

Aunty Marion was a very special lady to her many English relatives (descendants of her sister Gwen).
Marion left England in 1953 to start her new life in America.
She visited England many times and various family members stayed with her over the years.
She was kind, great fun to be with, generous, she had a wicked sense of humour and was fiercely independent and loyal.
We shall all miss her very much but will treasure the memories we have of her.
God bless you Aunty Marion.

I have known Marion for 40 years. I love her dearly, she has been like a sister to me, and a grandma to my children. I will miss her so much. I can't imagine not being able to talk to her every week, or see her every couple of of months.
She was a wonderful friend to everyone, would do anything to help anyone. She worked as a volunteer for over 30 years to raise money for hospice.
Originally from Oxford, England. She has family there who she loved dearly, and enjoyed her visits to england and their visits here. Always trying to help, knitting sweaters and blankets for needy children, Loved reading and doing jigsaw puzzles, and was famous for her baking, especially her jam tarts. I am lucky to have a lot of her recipes. She loved to travel, Marion and I travelled a lot together, she was a lot of fun, always ready to try anything and had a great wit. She will be missed by so many. Especially by her two sons and daughter , my thoughts are with you. Her husband Don, passed many years ago, but she had such wonderful memories of him. I thank you for all the wonderful memories you have given me and my children. You are missed already.

We were so blessed to have Aunt Marion as part of our family. I will always cherish the wonderful memories of family gatherings, holidays and road trips together. She was my mother's dearest friend for over 60 years. She was such an amazing woman! Always with kind, thoughtful, intelligent words and advice for us. During her life she put her caring and compassion into action touching many, many people. I have never met a person I admire more.
Thank you, Marion. May you rest in peace with Donald by your side.

Barb & Family: "Great people such as your mother are an inspiration to everyone around them. Your mother will continue to be an inspiration for me, even though she has passed. She will live on in my memory and thoughts." Growing up across the street from your family, I have fond memories of your mother. She was such a caring kind person and brought comfort to me. I'm so sorry for your loss. Debbie (Tyo) St.Amand
