as I and my brothers grew up it was a contest between marion and ross and benny and I and my two sons it was a race to see who was in the river to swim first and the last one to swim in the river in October or November and it sure was cold
and we use to keep ice cleaned off on the river and the winter and once in a while if marion had free time she would come and skate with us or we would see her skating up the river as far as she could go
she was a real trooper and she always was frank and said what was on her mind
sorry for the loss of a good lady

Marion and I were friends and co-workers when she was in Barrie more than 30 years ago. She was great to work with and made excellent quiche when she invited friends for lunch...we often talked of her missionary work in Papua, New Guinea. Several of us actually visited a few times after she moved back to her home in Gelert, although we eventually lost touch. She was a wonderful sympathy to the family.

My deepest sympathy to Marion's family. I was a member of Norland United Church and we were graced by her presence from time to time. I can recall how she would light up the sanctuary upon her arrival. I worked fairly closely with her when we were planning Norland's 125th anniversary and she would regale me with stories and laughter during our phone conversations. I also remember when she attended our church when her brother was preaching. My condolences to all those whose lives she touched.

My condolences to Anna's nieces and nephews. Anna was with me in the K-W Hospital nursing class of '57. She was a force to be reckoned with. Asked the hard questions, enthusiastic, practical, cajoling, hearty laughter, pragmatic. She was older than the rest of us and took our youthful, girlish antics in stride with wit and laughter. Anna certainly lived a "large" life, and let her light shine wherever in the world she was and left a good legacy for you and us to remember. Nancy Fehderau
