November 11, 1956 – September 5, 2019
It is with profound sadness, eased by loving and cherished memories, that we the family and friends announce the passing of Marion Velma Boyle nee Lank on Thursday, September 5, 2019 surrounded with family at her side in Chemainus, BC. Marion was born November 11, 1956 to Norman and Shirley (nee McGee). Marion lived in Herschel for the past 11 years until her recent move back to the island to be near the many who loved her in her hometown. Marion journeyed graciously and courageously with cancer for the past 4 years and will be forever missed and adored for her strength and love.
Marion will be mourned by her children: Tamatha (Matthew), Jodi (Tim), and Robbert. She will also be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren: Brianna (Craig), Tyler, Zackary, Kailey, Suzanna, Katelynn, Donovan, David, Dakota, Cheyenne; brothers: Don Wyman (Brenda), Douglas Lank: her mother Shirley Gilchrist as well as aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. Marion was predeceased by her father Norman Lank, brother Thomas Lank and loving husband Roger Boyle.
Some of Marion’s last found words were… “When life gets hard for you, I hope you’ll take some time to watch a sun rise or a sun set, enjoy the warmth of the sun and the brilliance of the moon and stars. Spend time by the water, walk barefoot in nature. Appreciate the beauty and peacefulness of that first snowfall. Smell fresh blossoms in spring and enjoy all the colors of fall. All these brought me pleasure and calmness.”
A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at Sands Funeral Chapel, 187 Trunk Road, Duncan, BC.
