On Tuesday, January 25, 2022, Ms. Marie Cardinal of Edmonton, AB. passed away unexpectedly at her home in Edmonton, Alberta at the age of 83 years. We are devastated and deeply saddened by her loss. Marie will be dearly missed and always remembered.
Marie, tenderly known as “Baby” to her family, will be remembered for her generosity and help to her family and friends when in need. She loved to dance and would eagerly take on a two step, or jive, or swing dance with anyone that was willing to accompany her. Marie enjoyed the outdoors and camping. She loved to travel and was grateful to have had the opportunity to visit many countries throughout the world during the course of her lifetime.
Marie will be forever loved by her sister Delia (Bert); her faithful and enduring friend Rena; as well as by numerous, nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
Marie was predeceased by her partner Jim; her parents Albert & Monica; by her brothers; Harry, George and Jack; and by her sister Beatrice.
Marie has requested direct cremation and a Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Mathias Roman Catholic Church in Goodfish Lake, Alberta on May 20, 2022 at 11:00 am.
A Native Prayer
O Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me!
I am small and weak. I need your strength and wisdom.
Let Me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands, respect the things you have made, and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may understand the things you have taught my people.
Let me learn, the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
But to fight my greatest enemy – myself.
Make me always ready, to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my spirit will come to you without shame.
