Marion Geneva Odessa Lewis (née Brothers) passed away peacefully with her family at her bedside on Saturday, December 12, 2020, Marion’s 87th birthday. Marion attended Acadia University where she studied Secretarial Science and met her future husband, the late Dr. Ronald J. Lewis. She held several secretarial positions in Halifax, Nova Scotia prior to moving to Toronto, Ontario where Ron established his dental practice. She later worked in Ron’s dental office as Office Manager where her warm smile and presence made her very popular with the patients.
Marion was the doting mother of Derrick (Shannon), Lisa (Jimmy), and Craig (Abby). Always elegant and graceful, Marion was always the epitome of style. While raising her busy family, Marion pursued her interests in oil painting, ceramics, cooking, sewing, interior decorating, and traveling. She was also the proud and loving grandmother of Claire, Adrian, Miles, and Nathaniel.
Marion took great pride in her Nova Scotian roots where she grew up on a farm in Cambridge with her siblings William, Carl, Lillian, Beverly, Murray, Allison, Garfield, Sandra, Terry, Deborah, and Cameron. Marion and her siblings were a close-knit family who enjoyed spending time together at family reunions, singing, and dancing. Marion was cherished by many and will be dearly missed by her friends and family.
