It is with great sadness the family of Winifred Marie Tyrrell announces her passing on January 9, 2021 at her home in Oshawa, Ontario at the age of 85 years. Marie was born in Ireland in 1935 and immigrated to Canada with her husband and children in 1974. Marie was married to the love of her life Ernest for 67 years. She was the ever loving and devoted mother of Denise (passed Feb 7, 1970), Ruth (Russell), Neil (passed May 2,1999) and Peter (Kellie). Marie was the proud Nana of Rory, Stacey, Samantha, Jennifer, Emily, Kathleen and Sophie. She leaves behind two loving sisters, Mona(Ireland) and Josephine(England) as well as many nieces and nephews. Also, Marie leaves behind many loving friends. As well as being a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and friend Marie was a dedicated nurse who loved her career. She made life long friends where ever she walked. The last few years of her life was a valiant struggle with cancer. A very special thank you goes to the LHIN staff and Paramed staff for the professional and amazing care they gave to Marie. We are enriched by Marie’s love of us and we will miss her always but take comfort knowing she’s in the loving hands of our Lord. Love forever to our Mummy Darling!

Our deepest sympathies to the entire family. The pain you must be going through. She was so special. Whenever I think of Mrs Tyrrell, I think of how merry she was, and how everyone around her smiled. I remember the path that was worn away in the grass where both families cut across to our neighbouring houses. The holiday parties were never without singing and dancing. She lived life to the fullest, and brought us all along for the ride. We'll miss you, Mrs. T. - Jennifer Murphy & family
