Dear Susan, Marilyn, Jean, Ruth, John and families,
We are thinking of you all at this sad time. While our minds are prepared for this time, our hearts still have to say goodbye.
Your mother was a friend, mentor, fellow-chorister and encourager to me. I remember the day I stopped by for a quick visit, and Marion led the two of us in a mini-bible study. I was the one who was comforted that day. So very like her!
She will be missed.
Love, Susan and Dave McKay

In 2017, Doug & I visited Aunt Marion at her home at Aberdeen Gardens - here we are having breakfast at a bistro down the street. Aunt Marion was engaging and ready to tour us through the region- and even enjoyed a Sunday morning Mimosa!
She was robust in every way, contributing her time and knowledge throughout her life. We wish all her family peace and comfort.

I was so sorry to read of your Mother's passing in the Spectator this weekend.
What a great lady who left her family with many memories.
I missed seeing her on her walks around the neighborhood and over to the Locke Library while she was living at Aberdeen Gardens.
She enjoyed her independence and being able to get out and about.
May all of your life memories help to sustain you at this time.
My sincere condolences and many blessings are with you Jean and the rest of your family at this time.

Ron & I visited Aunt Marion last year in October. Both seeing her in her room and visiting in the Lobby with her daughters Susan and Jean was delightful. Aunt Marion was as observant as ever remarking I looked like Hinkie (sister Agnes, now deceased) then quickly correcting herself and saying no I didn't look like Hinkie. Observant and honest as always right up to the end of life. What a remarkable woman.
Picture is of Aunt Marion reviewing the family photo album with me, Susan Mielke.

Marion was truly an amazing individual! I met her when I was 5 when my parents moved just two doors away. My mother and Marion supported each other during family challenges and became life long pals - a friendship that endured even when our family moved west 10 years later. I remember too all the "girls" and then Johnny!! They were younger than I but we still had lots of interaction - especially on the piano!! Marion could do anything - cooking, baking, preserving, gardening, volunteering - you name it, she did it! When I think of her it makes me smile! That's a wonderful legacy... and of course, the family she leaves is a tribute to her caring and loving.
She had a long and good life - but will certainly be missed by so many. May God Bless her and all the family... Virtual hugs and love

It's people like Marion, who contributed with her volunteerism that make the world a better place. A lovely lady and she will be missed.

I had the great honour of knowing this lady while working as her house cleaner for a few years. She always had a nice cup of tea waiting for me when I had finished my work and we sat at the kitchen table and chatted about anything and everything. She lived a long and productive life. Thoughts and prayers are with the family. She will be greatly missed.

Our sympathies to the Fair family on Marion’s passing. She and my mother Jean Biehler-Cunliffe were life long friends. We were always subject to nursing stories from the Hamilton General school of nursing and Marion was always a key character! Hold dear her memory.

Very sorry to hear about your mom's passing away. She was a very, very nice person. I always enjoyed her sense of humour. God bless all of you.
