Her loving, joyful nature and love for family, faith and music will live on in all who knew her. Marian had a beautiful, storybook childhood in Chaffey’s Locks, where the life lessons and values of her beloved parents were instilled. Marian drew people to her because of her sense of fun and love. She was a collector of people, not of things. Her love for teaching and children propelled her into the education system, where she taught elementary school. Finding her true love, Gerry Goulah rang in a new chapter in her life full of children, friends, faith and good times. Toronto then Kingston became home. After Gerry’s passing, Marian returned home to Chaffey’s and built a home on the family property. After retiring, Marian moved to Westport where the convenience of community was abundant and accessible. This was a golden time for Marian.
We wish to thank all of the amazing friends and family and caregivers who have loved her and supported our family through her final years at the Kingsdale Chateau, The Waterford, and Providence Manor. She often said: “there is so much good in the world, you just have to look for it”.
In regard to global coronavirus pandemic, a celebration of life will occur at a later announced date.
In lieu of flowers, donations could be made to the Joe Chithalen Lending Library (www.joesmill.org/) in Kingston because of her love for music and teaching or to your local Humane Society.
