Westcott, Marion Sarah

Marion passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 18, 2023 at Errinrung Long Term Care Home in Thornbury at the age of 97.

Marion was predeceased by her husband Hubert Westcott in 1989 and grandson Andrew in 2004.

She was the loving mother of Ronald (Norma), Stephen, and Nancy Rheaume (John).

Marion was the proud grandmother of Brian, Stephanie, Nicole, Matthew and Michael, and great grandmother of Hannah, Susan, Penny, Clara and Sylvie.

Marion was born in Montreal, QC on June 3, 1925, a daughter of the late Robert and Mary Jane (nee McNally) Anderson.  She spent most of her life in Montreal and moved to Stratford at the age of 77 to be closer to family.  Marion was a homemaker for many years and later worked at Scotiabank in downtown Montreal for 25 years.  She loved working there and even learned French to help her to communicate in her customer service role.

A special thank you to the exceptional staff at Errinrung, where she lived for the past 4 years.  Thank you also to the Anne Hathaway Retirement Home in Stratford where she lived previously and had many good friends, including June Lacroix who provided companionship.

A celebration of Marion’s life will be conducted at St. George’s Anglican Church in Clarksburg on Friday, May 26, 2023 at 11 o’clock. There will be time to share memories and refreshments following the service.

    Nancy & Family,
    I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Marion’s passing. It doesn’t feel that long ago when I saw her at her 90th birthday Party…..
    I have so many fond memories of my mom, Millie & Marion visiting each other to just hang out and reminisce, look at old photos, and trips to the mall.
    All my best to you and your family.

    Brenna Morrison
