Remembering Marion Lorraine Magee
and Vicky Rombough, Garth and Julie Rombough, and Lynn and Michael Evans. Marion was predeceased by her husband, Ernie, with whom she enjoyed 67 wonderful years of marriage.
Born on July 17, 1928, Marion grew up and went to school in Winnipeg, graduating from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics in 1949. Marion met John Ernest (Ernie) Magee in her University days and on September 12, 1953, they were married in their hometown in Winnipeg. Marion and Ernie moved to Toronto in 1959 and enjoyed over 60 years there. Marion and Ernie loved traveling and visited many countries around the world on their annual trips. Her other love was their Haliburton cottage, where she and her family spent more than 55 summers. She was a Charter member of Donminster United, later to be Jubilee United. She was an active member of the University Canada West, her beloved Bridge Club and the Milne House Garden Club for nearly 30 years. Marion's special hobby was designing hasty notes and place cards with her pressed flowers. If you have been fortunate to receive one, you will treasure it as a keepsake from this fine lady who always showed a genuine interest in all her family and friends and their activities. Marion cared for them deeply and always thought the best of people. She was a special lady who loved life and was always there for others. She touched the lives of all she knew. She will be greatly missed by many. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Jubilee United Church (jublieeunited.ca) would be appreciated.
