Marianne was my good friend and colleague dating back to 1968. She leaves huge shoes to fill in the world around her. If she saw a need she always worked to fix it. She was the glue that held her workplace and family together. She was rightly proud of the boys she and Bill raised, and very proud of her grandchildren. RIP my friend.

I was so sad to see that Marianne had passed when I was reading the weekend paper. I worked with her quite closely at the Golden Plough and missed her terribly when she retired. However, we soon met up again at the Northumberland Hills Hospital when I was working and she was volunteering. She was an excellent nurse and just a wonderful person. She will be missed .

Marianne you were a dear friend and a great colleague when we worked together at GPL. Rest in peace.

Maureen Paterson

I was saddened to read of Marianne's passing at such a young age. I had the privilege of working a few months with Marianne during 1992 and 1993 as a Nurse Classifier for the Ministry of Long Term Care. We were paired up together and travelled to different Long Term Care homes mostly east of here. I specifically remember her kindness, the laughs we would share together and the exciting World Series games we would watch from our hotel room after our day's work. Marianne introduced me to Bingo and when I periodically attend I think of that Lightening Bingo we attended together in Kingston and how she played my cards as well as her's. RIP Marianne
