Upon the passing of her dear late husband Marie turned to volunteering to bring more richness to her days, Marie was a very kind and caring person to the very core of her being. Marie volunteered at Northwood Community Care in the gift shop and also the Parker Street Food bank, with Mel and fellow volunteers. Marie truly loved to be helping people.
Marie was a cancer survivor after her struggles for some time in and out of remission Marie was admitted into the New Bone Marrow Transplant/Hematology Wing of the Halifax Victorian General Hospital while under the care of Dr. Neville in the early 1990’s Marie’s cancer was totally eradicated for 28 years.
Marie loved to travel, she enjoyed many trips to Quebec City to visit with her Sister Judy and her husband Claude. Marie set out on an adventure to London England with her brother Don, his wife Christina Hilchey, and her Sister Judy where she visited The Coronation Street set and many Beetles Mania sites. This trip, would turn out to be one of her fondest, as she recounted to me her daughter.
