August 18, 1928 – November 4, 2015
Marie Thiessen, loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, passed away November 4, 2015 at the age of 87 years. Marie, who was a very active person with a strong commitment to family and community, leaves behind a legacy of resilience and strength far greater than her physical stature. She will be greatly missed by her 6 remaining siblings, 5 children, 7 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren, as well as their families and many friends. Marie touched the lives of countless people who will miss her greatly and will have many wonderful memories to cherish. A celebration of Marie’s life will be held in January at a date to be finalized. The family is requesting donations to the Cancer Fund in lieu of flowers.
