ERNEST DENIS MARION
July 25, 1937 - September 19, 2022


We mourn the passing of Ernest Denis Marion who died peacefully on September 19, 2022, at the age of 85 years.
He was predeceased by his parents, Adonai and Armande; his sisters, Jeannine Ostrom and Laura Penner; his brother Ronald; as well as his brothers-in-law, Eric Clark, Tony Morin and Dennis Penner and his nephew André Morin. On Paule's side of the family, he was predeceased by his sister-in-law Lorraine Hébert (Jules).
Ernest is survived by his wife of 61 years, Paule (née Hébert); his siblings, Doris Morin (Albert Combot), Edith Clark, Paulette Vermette (Roger) and Marielle Hoffman (Gerald); brother-in-law Dale Ostrom; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Ernest grew up on a farm in Arnaud, Manitoba. He attended Otterburne College, where he took great pleasure in participating in all sports. Later he met and married Paule and pursued a career in law enforcement, serving as a police officer in St. Boniface for 28 years and then as head of security at Red River College. He and Paule spent their workdays in Winnipeg and enjoyed weekends in their quiet spot in Woodmore, where they eventually settled for good. Ernest truly enjoyed his retirement there, including the time spent with his horses and his dog Timi. He showed a great love of animals and was even known to be a horse whisperer of sorts.
Ernest was known for his giving spirit, kidding nature and his love of family and the outdoors. He was a great storyteller and a generous host to all who visited.
A private family service has taken place.

ERNEST DENIS MARION

25 juillet 1937 - 19 septembre 2022


Nous pleurons le décès d'Ernest Denis Marion qui s'est éteint paisiblement le 19 septembre 2022, à l'âge de 85 ans.
Il a été précédé par ses parents Adonai et Armande, ses soeurs Jeannine Ostrom et Laura Penner; son frère Ronald; ainsi que ses beau-frères Eric Clark, Tony Morin, and Dennis Penner; et son neveu André Morin. Du côté de la famille de Paule, il a été précédé par sa belle-soeur Lorraine Hébert (Jules).
Ernest laisse dans le deuil son épouse depuis 61 ans, Paule (née Hébert); ainsi que ses frères et soeurs Doris Marion (Albert Combot), Edith Clark, Paulette Paulette Vermette (Roger), et Marielle Hoffman (Gerald); son beau-frère Dale Ostrom; et de nombreuses nieces, neveux, cousins et amis.
Ernest a grandi sur une ferme à Arnaud, au Manitoba. Il a fréquenté le Collège Otterburne où il a pris beaucoup de plaisir à participer à tous les sports. Plus tard, il a rencontré et épousé Paule et a poursuivi une carrière dans le domaine de l'application de la loi comme policier à Saint-Boniface pendant 28 ans, puis ensuite comme chef de la sécurité au Red River College.
Paule et Ernest passaient leurs semaines de travail à Winnipeg et profitaient des fin de semaine dans leur coin tranquille à Woodmore, où ils se sont finalement installés pour de bon. Ernest a grandement apprécié sa retraite là-bas, y compris le temps passé avec ses chevaux et son chien Timi. Il a démontré un grand amour des animaux. Ernest était connu pour son esprit charitable, sa nature plaisante, et son amour pour la famille et du plein air. Il était un grand conteur et un hôte généreux pour tous ceux qui visitaient.
