I will always remember meeting Marion and Thomas at St. Joe's in Victoria. Members of the choir forever (at least, that's how it felt), they are both pillars of the music ministry. I find it very difficult to think about us without you, Marion… your quick smile -- or sideways grin -- or raised eyebrow -- could break any brewing tension! May your strength and kindness be with us always.

Thomas, know that we are with you, to help you and your family through this very difficult time. God bless.

With much love and prayers,
Kathy

Marion and I met at the Chateau Victoria in 1977. During the years that have passed since then we have been friends even if we did not manage to see much of each other. Marion has a place in my heart forever. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this very difficult time. Please take care.
Love,
Helga

I have known Marion for 35 years. We met at the Chateau Victoria and worked as desk clerks starting in 1976. Marion was so proud to be known as the first desk clerk at the Chateau! She was a good friend and fun to work with. She was always going out of her way to do kind things for people. I recall when the Air Canada crews were staying at the hotel. She thought they would enjoy a home cooked meal as they were always eating in restaurants. They were touched when Marion invited them to her home for a home cooked meal. In the late 70's Marion, myself and our other good friend Helga (who also worked at the Chateau Victoria) moved to Vancouver. We were young and in our 20's and full of hope for the future. Nothing could stop us. Then came husbands and babies for 2 of us. Marion is the mother of 7 wonderful children - all grown men and women now and my heart goes out to all of them and their own children. You know what a very special person your mother was and her loving memory will live with us forever. Over the last 8 or so months I watched Marion live with her illness with bravery and dignity. I never heard a word of complaint and she always had a smile and a welcome for me when I came to visit. I looked forward to her healing. There are some things in life that must remain a mystery. They are hard to accept but some day we will understand why things happen. Tom and children, Marions' family and Father, take good care of yourselves and know you will see Marion again. Love and hugs...... Linda
