It is with great sorrow the family of Marian Kostelny announce her passing after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband and best friend of 44 years, John; her daughter and son-in-law, Shantel and Rob Collinge; and the greatest light of her life, her granddaughter, Morgan. Also left to cherish her memory are her two sisters, Betty (Lyle) Mittelsteadt; and, Theresa (Jeff) Krebs; and many other family members and friends.
Marian loved her family, especially her little “Mow-paw”, Morgan. But, she also loved being a nurse. She dedicated over 46 years to nursing and truly loved every minute. She made many great friends while working at the hospital who all held a special place in her heart. Her other passion was riding her ol’ CCM bicycle around town. A service will be held to celebrate her life, in the Dow Centennial Centre, Lions Mane 8700 – 84 Street, Fort Saskatchewan, AB on Thursday, August 28, 2014 at 2:00 pm.
A private family interment ceremony to take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to either the Alberta Cancer Foundation or the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital Foundation.
Gord and Cindy Kadatz managing directors.
