Retired Kindergarten Teacher Russell Public School
Marion McEwen (nee Megill) of Metcalfe passed away peacefully in hospital, with family by her side, after a seven month battle with pancreatic cancer in the early dawn of the New Year. She was 80.
She was the beloved wife of the late Lynden McEwen. She was the adoring Mom of George, Hugh (Cheryl Cooper), and Anne (David Rubinoff) McEwen. She was the cherished Grandma of Kate and Stuart McEwen; and Rebecca and Sarah Rubinoff. Marion was the much loved sister of the late Sally Megill of Ottawa, Stephanie (Doug) Fox of Collingwood; and was the sister-in-law of Dr. Dean and Lynn MacEwen of Delaware. She was the dearly loved Aunt Marion to Tim (Kayla) and Katie Fox; Kathy (Charles) Potter; Jane (Rick) Barton; Nancy (Larry) Hartigan; and David (Jenny) and John (Elise) MacEwen. She was the cherished friend and neighbour of many. Marion devoted her life to her family, and the children she taught during her 30-year career. Her warm smile enriched the lives of those around her, and her baking was known far and wide for the love she added to each recipe.
