Marion (Hamilton) McWilliams

October 25, 1922 ~ February 2, 2022 (age 99)


Marion passed away peacefully in her 100th year on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 with family and the loving staff at Pine Meadow Nursing Home by her side.     Beloved wife of the late Carl McWilliams.    Dear daughter of the late Celesta and Mary Hamiltion (nee Forrest).    Loving sister to the late Janet (the late Wilfrid) Quesnel and the late Marie (the late Paul) Latter.    Much loved and sadly missed by her many nephews, nieces, grandnephews, grandnieces, cousins and friends.

Marion was born in Oyen, Alberta and raised on the family farm.   She later fell in love with and married her beloved Carl and, after the honeymoon, settled into their first home in Jacksons Point on Lake Simcoe, north of Toronto.   Marion and Carl later bought a home in Toronto and a cottage on  Skootamatta Lake, where they enjoyed many happy years together with family and friends.   In her later years, Marion moved to Northbrook and the Pine Meadow Nursing Home.

Marion was full of life.    Always the first to welcome you with a smile and laughter and always happy to see you.   She was kind, loving, generous of heart and ever the optimist.    She made friends easily, forming many long-lasting friendships throughout the years.    Marion enjoyed entertaining family and friends at the cottage and was always ready for a game of euchre or hearts.  She was always up for activity and fun, whether for a swim or boat ride in summer, or a skidoo ride and ice-fishing in winter.   She embraced life and liked to share her love of it with others.   

The family would especially like to thank all the staff at Pine Meadow Nursing Home for the wonderful, compassionate and tender-loving care they provided for Marion during her many years with them.
