My deepest condolences to the family. Marion was such a pleasant lady to everyone. I had the pleasure of meeting her and being a part of the team at Peterborough Retirement when she resided there. She always wore a smile and was so kind. May she rest in peace.

Our sincere condolences Joan, Jeff and to all your family. Joan, your Mom was an incredible lady. I was in awe...she was one of the biggest fans at Matt, Mike and Mark's hockey games plus she did the family laundry. She leaves a precious legacy.
