Marie Mo Chambers (Owen)

April 29, 1946 - September 29, 2019


Marie was born in Farnworth Lancaster, England. Born to Mary and William Owen, sisters Irene and Bernard Barnes and Jean Grimshaw (Allen).

Marie immigrated with her family to Canada in 1978, settling on Vancouver Island in Youbou, then moved to Duncan, B.C. where she met and married her husband Robert Earl Stirling Chambers (Predeceased).

Mo loved her job as a seamstress, working at K & C Thermoglass, then later working with her dear friend Sandy at Duncan Tailors.

Her passion was acting and singing, taking her on many adventures such as Shaw Cable’s TV show “Out to Lunch,” entertaining with The Vaudeville express and performing at the seniors centre doing her “I’m tired” routine.

Marie was an amazing friend, mother and Nana. She showed us the meaning of love and strength, leaving a deep mark on everyone she knew. Her bright, witty personality came through in everything she did and said. Mo lived her life just how she wanted, fun, free, with her family and her birds Georgie and Bird. Her spirit lives on in all of us.

Marie passed away in their family home with her daughter Elizabeth, son in law Eric and grand kids by her side.

She will be dearly missed by her youngest and loving daughter Elizabeth, beloved son in law Eric Dewit and other children Christopher Harrison (Ina), Stephanie Flowers (Ross) and Mary Grosskleg (Roger).

She will always be deeply missed by her grandchildren Tyler (Jennifer), Zackary (Stephanie), Dagan (Kaycee), Ryan, Amelia, Ava, Michael, Kent, Johnny, Amy, Gage, Owen and great grandchildren Mackenzie, Logan, Lily, Pearl, Odin, future great grandson Leo, another great grand baby due in May and many nieces and nephews in England. Along with her best friend Carol Fowler and the crazy ladies. Marie was an honorary Mum and Nana to many more.

A Celebration of Life will be held at H.W. Wallace 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan, B.C. Wednesday October 9, 2019 at 1 pm.

Please stay for tea, coffee and sandwiches afterwards and share some memories.

Relation: Neice

I was shocked to hear such sad news and that my Auntie Marie had passed away so suddenly. I know we live so far apart and have lost some contact over the years but I do have such fond memories of summer holidays spent with Auntie Marie and my cousins when you all lived in Cornwall before you emigrated in the late 70’s. I remember Auntie Marie as being lots of fun to be with and have never forgotten my holidays. So from afar I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you all in your time of loss and sending you my deepest condolences. Love From Ruth and family (Gibraltar & UK) xxx
