Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I met Marnie over 20 years ago when I was assigned as the Licensing Child Care Co-ordinator for the Morrow Avenue Child Care programs. Early on it was evident that Marnie had a great passion for children and early learning and that she was going to be an invaluable asset to Bonnie and her vision for child care in the community. Marnie you were all-of-that and so much more! Be at peace. Kim - Posted by: Kim Hucko (Colleague) on: Jun 16, 2022

  • Lisa, I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s death. She was always such a bright light, engaged and caring, even when things were tough. You were such a joy in her life and she was so proud of you. Love you Linda - Posted by: Linda McKellar (Gillian’s mom - long time friend ) on: Jun 14, 2022

  • I worked in the same building as Marni. She was dedicated to providing a nurturing environment to the children in her care. Her sense of humour, joy of life and compassion for others were only a few of her strengths. It was an honour to work with her; she will be missed. My sincere sympathies to her family and friends. - Posted by: Val deVries (Workplace friend) on: Jun 13, 2022
