at the age of 83 years

A Memorial will be held at a later date.

Marion Agnes Morris (83) the oldest daughter of Bill Alison and Irene Wells. She had many fond memories of playing outdoors with her four siblings; George, Edith, Jean, and Bill in Revelstoke (BC). At the age of sixteen she met and married her husband Stanley James Morris (Jim). In the first years of their marriage they had a farm in Saskatchewan and she enjoyed watching the lightning storms on the prairies. Later, they moved back to BC and bought a farm outside of Salmon Arm. The small house and farm would become their home. They built a bigger house, designed beautiful gardens, had chickens, cows, and horses. Their home was welcoming, warm, and open to their family and friends, just as they were. Marion and Jim created a loving life together and shared that love with their many nieces, nephews and adopted family. Marion worked as the manager of Ready’s Drugstore, where she made many friends in the community. When she wasn’t at work, she could often be found camping, boating, or hiking with family and friends. She didn’t stay still for long and at home she would be busy with baking, cooking, canning, sewing, or drawing. She was immensely creative and talented. Marion was passionate about nature and animals, her little farm was the perfect spot for her to watch for bears, deer, raccoons, birds, and frogs. She had the most incredible encounters with wildlife all from the safety of her patio. We love you deeply, you were a mother, aunt, sister, grandmother, and most of all our friend. We miss you, The Alisons, The Gross’s, The Morris’s, The Sage’s, and The Watties.

  1. Today I said Goodbye My Friend / you were like a mom to me

    We’ve done a lot of things that we’ll never regret;
    The good ones or the bad ones, moments I’ll never forget.
    It’s hard for me to cheer up, because I am feeling blue;
    By accepting the fact that, my life’s never the same without you.

    You’ve been here with me, through my ups and my downs;
    You’ll be willing to walk on by the outskirts of all towns.
    Just to help me get through, my problems all along.
    Now that you are already gone, I guess I have to be strong.

    I will treasure this last week we spent together you will always been in my

You will be remembered with the same love and respect that you always showed to me. You brought love, laughter and kindness to all who were lucky enough to be graced by your presence.
