Marian Fortin

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and friend.

Marian was born in Polwarth, Saskatchewan, she moved to Youbou in 1964 where she and Leo raised their 4 children. Leo and Marian moved all over the island until they came back to the lake in 2012. Marian was a loving and caring mother, wife, & grandmother. She enjoyed the simple things in life like a beautiful garden and spending time with her family. 

Marian is predeceased by her daughter Lynn, December 1988, & husband Leo, February 2013.

Marian is survived by daughter Kim (Orest), sons Rod (Donna), Jim (Roland), many grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Thank you to Donna for her loving support, Karen for always making sure mom had fresh flowers in her room and a big thank you to all the people who supported our family.

Funeral services will be held at St. Louis De Montfort Catholic Church, 60 Fern Road in Lake Cowichan on Saturday, April 30th at 10:00 AM, Lunch to follow at the Youbou Firehall at 12:00 PM

From: Arline McKay
Relation: My Auntie

Auntie Marion was such a great person,
as a child I would just stare at her and be thinking how beautiful she was, her blond hair and I loved the way she spoke with a slight accent .
I thought that she was so glamorous.
I remember the time that the Allan Denise an I camped on her beautiful property in Youbou ,although I knew that we had over stayed our welcome ,she never made us feel that we had .she understood and was so gracious and accommodating to the kids and I.Yes she even fed us at times, she was such a wonderful cook too .
I will never forget the heartfelt talks we had that summer .Auntie you will live on in my heart forever ,Never to be forgotten for the amazing woman that you were
