Obituary for Marion Alma Stringer

STRINGER, Marion (nee Warren) - Passed away peacefully at Groves Park Lodge, Renfrew, Ontario on Tuesday, October 2, 2018, at the age of 88. Beloved wife of the late Douglas. Cherished mother of Kim (Tim LaForce). Predeceased by daughter Karen (Franz Ferraris). Loving Grandma to Trevor (Natalie-Joy), Stefanie, Erin and Marco and Great-Grandma to Alexandra-Joy and Beatrice. Dear sister to Phyllis Hunter (late Charles), Nora Mulvihill (late Con), Lynn Larocque (Jim) and sister-in-law to Marilyn Husak (Nick). Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by siblings Don (late Marion), Doreen Stubinski (late Wyndham), Charlotte Jack (late Hilmer) and Marilyn Warren and sister-in-law, Sheila Coo (late Laurie).
Born and raised in the Renfrew area, and keen to experience life in the big city, Marion pursued work in Toronto. It was there she met Doug, the love of her life and where they spent many happy times with family and friends. Seeking opportunities in the early days of television, the young couple moved back to Renfrew to launch their first business and raise their family.
Marion, “Mame” and Doug would go on to have several creative business ventures, including opening a store in Algonquin Park. Many memorable times were spent with family on vacations and at “The Farm”, making maple syrup, tending the garden and cultivating flowers. Marion was a gracious hostess, always welcoming family and friends to their home.
Marion was involved in several community activities, including the Order of the Eastern Star, Meals on Wheels and the Renfrew Horticultural Society. She was a Guild member and parishioner at St. Paul’s Anglican Church.
Sincere thanks to the caring staff at Groves Park Lodge, where Marion lived for the past year. Despite the challenges of dementia, she maintained her gentle manner and remained a kind and joyous lady.
The family will receive friends on Saturday, October 13, from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at McPhail and Perkins Funeral Home, 85 Munroe Avenue E., Renfrew. A Celebration of Life will follow in the Chapel at 1 p.m.
Donations to Renfrew Victoria Hospital or the Alzheimer Society would be graciously appreciated.
