Sharpe, Marion

January 17, 1916 - January 15, 2014


Two days before her 98th birthday, and after sharing her last days with her loving family, Marion’s full and active life came to its natural and peaceful end on January 15, 2014. She will be very sadly missed by her large loving family and friends. Marion is predeceased by her husband Paul (May 1, 1984); brothers Leslie Clark of Mission, John Clark of Saanich; and sister Edith Crombie of Abbotsford. Marion is survived by her sons Robert (Kerry) Sharpe, Steve (Laura) Sharpe, and Ken (Lori) Sharpe; daughters Adrienne (Dan) Flurry Norman OK, Sandra Sharpe (Howes) PEI, and Randi Sharpe;  15 grandchildren; and 16 great grandchildren spread across Canada, the USA and as far away as Doha, Qatar; brother Ray Clark of White Rock; as well as cousins, and many nieces and nephews and friends. Many will remember Marion from her years as the community librarian at the old libraries on 2nd Ave. After her retirement she stayed active in the community with her involvement in the Historical Society, Lifetime Learning, friends of the library, Hospice Society, W.I. , Pathfinders, and Hospital Auxiliary. The family would like to express their thanks to Dr. Nemanishen and the caregivers at Mission hospital. A very special thanks and gratitude to the staff at the Dr. Stewart Pavillion for their exemplary care and compassion. Also a very special thanks to Laura Sharpe, daughter-in-law,nurse, confidant, and friend to Marion who made her life so much more comfortable over the last few years. Also thanks to the care givers at Carington House for their years of care and attention. Service to be held at 1:00 January 29, 2014 at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church 8469 Cedar St. Mission. Following the service there will be a tea held at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations to Christine Morrison Hospice would be appreciated.

My Grandmother was truly one of the best wonen I have ever known. She was a great lady and taught all of us the importance of family. I miss you Grandma.

Relation: Friend

Please accept my sincerest condolence. Your mother was such a lovely lady. Might I add, a lady in every sense of the word. The world would be a better place if there were more like her.

From: Ken Firkins
Relation: Childhood friend of Adrienne and Sandra

It was with sadness that I read of your mothers passing. Please accept our condolences and know that our thoughts are with you at this time.

When the Library was in the building the Museum is now, Marion hired me to work there with her and Dorothy Hughes.She was the best Librarian ever with her people skills and ability to match people with books they wanted or needed. She saved books for patrons as she remembered their reading preferences. She made a difference. I shall always be grateful for having known her and her family. Jane Gosselin

From: Gordon Catherwood
