Obituary of Marion Wilhelmina Dunnigan
Marion passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 12, 2023, in Kamloops BC. She was born August 25, 1935, in Calgary, Alberta, to Stanley Petres and Mary Kolcz. Her parents had emigrated from Poland in 1928 to start a new life but lost all their family during the Second World War. Shortly after high school, she married Ed, her husband of over 60 years and raised their five children. Marion loved crafts and was an avid quilter and painter. She also enjoyed knitting, crocheting, and needlepoint. Marion volunteered with the Catholic Women’s League. She was predeceased by her parents, husband Edward, and son David of Vernon. Marion will be lovingly remembered by her children Janice (Reilly Thompson) Dunnigan of Edmonton, Patricia (Russell) Bloomfield of Kamloops, Mark of Edmonton and Angela Dunnigan of Kamloops; granddaughter Alicia Dunnigan of Kamloops, great grandchildren Christopher and Edward. The Reverend Father Jaison Tellis OCD will lead us in a Celebration of Marion’s life in the Schoening Funeral Chapel on Saturday March 25 at 2:00 p.m. Those wishing to pay their respects by viewing may do so from 12:30 to 1:30 PM. A time of fellowship will follow the service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The John and Vera Dunnigan Education Scholarship at Edmonton Catholic School District, 9405 - 50 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T6B 2T4
