A special thank you to Monsignor Polito (Uncle Moe) for his lifelong love and spiritual guidance. The family would like to thank Joan Palmer of the Community Care Access Centre for her guidance and friendship during Marie's illness, her family doctor, Allan Bell, and the doctors and nurses of the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care who supported Marie and the family through this difficult time. Marie gave so much of herself to all she met and was a consummate nurturer in her personal life, and to the many students she met through her time as an Educational Assistant at Neil MCNeil Catholic Secondary School. In honour of Marie's gentle lifelong commitment to children, donations to Breakfast for Learning would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).
