WALKER, Marion Agnes
It is with saddened hearts we, the family, announce the passing of our mother Marion Agnes (Patrick) Walker on Monday, February 20, 2017 at the Northside General Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Joggins Mines, Nova Scotia on August 10, 1926 she was the daughter of the late George and Agnes ( Gordon) Patrick and step-daughter of Lena Frances (Vickery) Patrick.
Marion was a faithful member of Carman United Church, a U.C.W. member and a member of Cann Rebekah Lodge. She was employed at the Sydney Mines Post Office for the duration of her working years and where she made many lasting friendships. She was a good friend to many and recognized the good in all people. She enjoyed reading and in her earlier years loved to quilt and knit. Marion also enjoyed a lively game of cards. Marion was a dedicated volunteer at Harbourview Hospital daycare for 15 years. She worked tirelessly not for the recognition but because she wanted to do it and because she enjoyed being of service of others. She will surely be greatly missed by not only by her family and friends but also by those to who benefited from her volunteer work.
Marion is survived by her three sons, of whom she was very proud, Paul (Anne) Fort Mc Murray, Phillip ( Patsy), Sydney Mines and Charlie (Kim), Sydney Mines. She was Nan to eight grandchildren, Paul, Matthew, Christy, Frank Phillip, Patricia, Steven, Tara Sandy and Ian.
