Marion was the most caring person I have ever met. After years working with her and knowing her for many years after, I never saw Marion angry or negative towards anyone. We always managed to get our retired co-worker together when we were in town and have great laughs over some of our memories working together. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed. RIP Marion.

This is a sad time. I didn’t see Tres often but we did chat once in a while and kept in touch. I fondly remember the good times we had during our time together in
London, Ontario shortly after graduation. We always drove back together to Montreal after our reunions. Such a pleasure to have her company on the long drive back.
Tres was a wonderful person, always pleasant, with a sense of humour and always interested in others. She stayed in touch with many of us with her letters and calls.
She is no longer with us but we will alwYs love her and fondly remember her. She was unique.

The news of Marian's passing comes as a shock, had not seen her since a year ago. Marian was always there to help or advise me and would always take the time to come and talk to me, while I went for my medical appointments in the Endocrinology dept. at RVH.

Very sweet lady, she always responded to my Christmas cards with a lovely "Thank You". I have never known anyone to have as much energy and drive as Marian did. Going for coffee with you was the best!! You will be greatly missed!! Thank you for everything, Rest in Peace.
