“The Best and Most Beautiful Things in the World
Cannot be Seen or even Touched.
They must be Felt with the Heart”
It is with a sad heart that we announce that our Sweet Marianne passed away quietly and with dignity, at the age of 53, with loving Family by her side.
Marianne struggled through life with health issues, but always seemed to rise above the darkest times with strength of heart and a smiling face. She was a gift to so many here in the Kootenays, always ready to support those who sought her knowledge for themselves or for their animals. She was a healer and an animal whisperer. She radiated love, compassion, and a gentleness of heart that goes beyond words.
May you finally rest, Marianne, and be with Joey, your most loved companion. You will be missed so much by family and friends.
A gathering of friends will be announced in the Spring to honour Marianne.
