Mariette’s love for gardening, fishing and dancing filled her days outside of spending time with her family and friends.

The whole family would like to thank Dr. Pullan and the healthcare nurses for their continuous support.

“We will love you until the rivers run still and the four winds blow away.”

There will be a celebration of Life for Mariette on Saturday, October 26, 2013, 11:00 am at St. Edwards Church, 2085 Maple Bay Road.  Reception to follow in Church Hall, everyone is welcome.  Memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be much appreciated by the family.

Dear Jeremy and Family:
I was shocked to hear of Mariette’s illness and how quickly she was taken from your midst. She was the center of your family all the years of raising the children then the life she shared with Jeremy and I cannot imagine the loss you all feel. The only consolation is that we know she is now free of pain and in Heaven with Our Loving God. Peace and Blessings to you all!
Maria Fernau and family

We can’t express the heart felt sorrow we feel for the loss of our dear friend Marietta. We were so blessed to have known her and Jeremy through the years when we visited B.C.

Relation: Best Friends Daughter

My condolences to Jeremy and all of his family.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy and Merritt at my Mother and Fathers Anniversary party. First at there 60th anniversary, and again at there 65th anniversary party. You see I am the daughter of Gunter and Lora Falk. Jeremy is my Fathers best friend. He often talks of Jeremy, and how he has never had such a friend as Jeremy. When meeting Jeremy and Merritt, I was instantly impressed in how Jeremy and Merritt are so loving, respectful, humorous, and how easily they fit into our family. Jeremy, I will never forget your smoked salmon, yummm!

My heart goes out to you, wish I could carry some of your sorrow for you. My prayers will be with you and your family.

Love, Bev. Campbell
