Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM / GAMES -

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. She was also a Great Gran to eight lit­tle ones who she had the great plea­sure to meet and love them all.
