Marion Elizabeth Closter
Jan. 27, 1921 – Oct. 15, 2016
Marion Elizabeth Closter (nee Bernard) went to the spirit world on the wings of a butterfly. She was the cherished Mum of Chris (Ian Hudson) of Winchester, Arlene (Douglas Orr) of Ottawa, Jan (Gerry Leroux) and Jill (Lloyd Barteaux), both of Pikwakanagan, Ont., Matt (Karen) of Kelowna, B.C., Tisha (Les Hutchinson) of Winchester, Tim (Pauline) of Westmeath, and Terry (Charlene) of Eganville. She was the proud Nanny of 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Marion was the dear sister-in-law of Lise Charles. She will be fondly remembered by a large extended family. Marion was predeceased by her husband, Pat; her parents, Matt and Christianne; and siblings Tessa, P.J., John, Maurice, Mike, Leonard, Tony, Mary, Archie, Bernadette, and Joseph.
Special thanks to the staff at Bonnechere Manor for their care, compassion, and appreciation of our Mum.
There will be no visitation at Marion’s request. Professional arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Zohr Funeral Home in Eganville.
A memorial mass will be held on Sat., Oct. 22 at Our Lady of Nativity Church in Pikwakanagan at 10:30 am followed by a graveside ceremony and interment with her parents. Family and friends are invited to gather at the Elders’ Centre behind the church afterwards.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Algonquin Way CulturalCentre can be made atcanadahelps.org/en/charities/omamiwinini-pimadjwowin-algonquin-way-of-life/ and would be greatly appreciated by her family.
