December 3 1928- September 10, 2022

Marion Barbara May Hope (Marr), on Saturday, September 10 at 1:30 pm at the age of 93, passed from this world into the arms of so many loved ones on the other side waiting for her to join them. With family by her side, she was surrounded by love, laughter and the joy of shared stories and memories. Her strength, open hearted love and resourcefulness was unmatched. She was an amazing woman who raised 6 children on her own. Always the caregiver: she worked over 40 years as a registered nurse, a career she knew she would have from the time she was 3 years old. Predeceased by her husband John Hope, her dear Sister Dorothy Hamilton (Marr), and her beloved sons, Bruce, Robert and David. Survived by her sons Bill and wife Judy (Morton), Donn and wife Karen (Ijjangiaq), her daughter Elizabeth (Snell) and husband Geoff, her 5 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews who she loved so much: Caitlin LePage, Courtney Hope, Allie Snell, Meaghan Hope and Greg Snell. She will be dearly missed not only by her family but by the many friends who loved and respected her as well. We love you; we know that you are watching over us, and that you are now at peace.

A visitation will be held at Riverside United Church, 3191 Riverside Drive on Wednesday September 21, 2022 at 12:30, followed by a Celebration of Life at 1:30. Please join the family for a reception following the service and final inurnment of Marion, Bruce, Robert and David at Beechwood Cemetery at 4:00.

    My fondest memory with you was always attending musicals for your birthday! We’ve seen quite a few as we enjoyed them so much. I still have some of the tickets kept!

    One of my most recent memories of you was when you pointed at my (now, non-existent) eyebrow piercing asking “what’s that? That’s pretty cool!”, which is a huge testament to your lovely character. You were always filled with positivity, and always ready to give a compliment.

    Grandma, I miss you dearly but know you are now reunited with your other loved ones. You are the best Grandmother a grandchild can ask for.

    My fondest memories of Mom were the trips to Spain and Edmonton we took together. She came to Spain with our family and I loved sitting by the Mediterranean with her sipping sangria. She was a trooper climbing the Rock of Gibraltar !!! Our Edmonton trip was just the two of us visiting Bruce. We shared a room, laughs and poignant moments. We had planned another trip together to visit Bruce but unfortunately he passed before we could fly out. One more memory I would like to share reflects on her generosity of spirit. When I first met Bill my father was in the process of moving out of our family home to an apartment. Our family dog Misty came with us. Unfortunately Misty was a barker and could not stay. I was grief stricken and Mom kindly took in Misty for me. Small of stature but the biggest of hearts! Rest In Peace mom; love you forever!
