BULL: Marion Lucinda (nee Wildfong)
It is with profound sadness that Marion’s family announce her peaceful passing, in her sleep, on October 9, 2020 at the age of 85.
She leaves behind the love of her life and best friend David, with whom she shared 64 years of marriage. Cherished and much-loved mother to Rick Bull and his wife Jayne, Sandy Anderson and her husband Gary, Kathy Bull-Harwood and her husband Michael Shannon, and Janet McGivern and her husband Sean.
Proud grandmother to Craig Anderson & his partner Katie Bond, Corey Anderson and his wife Heather, Meagan Forget & her husband Chris, Michael Harwood and his wife Ainsley, Monica Harwood & her fiancé Brandon Paul, Nicholas Bull and his fiancé Erie Zantingh and great-grandmother to Hannah, Emma, Olivia Forget, Evelyn and Sterling Anderson. Sister to Neil (Bun) Wildfong and his late wife Marilyn. Sister-in-law to Barbara Jones and her late husband Doug and to Isabel Wildfong. Predeceased by her brothers Keith and his late wife Gladys, Claire and Grant. Marion will also be remembered and loved by many nieces and nephews.
Marion was born and raised on the family farm in Dashwood, Ontario and was the daughter of the late Garnet & Pearl Wildfong. She attended High school in Exeter, and business school in London. She met David, the love of her life, on a blind date in 1955, and they married on September 8, 1956. They lived in Wallaceburg for a short period of time before settling in Chatham, where they raised their family. Marion worked for over 30 years as Bookkeeper for Sandy Elliot Performance Centre, and then Honda House.
Marion’s family and friends will forever remember her for her love of baseball, camping, and travelling, especially the annual family trip to Florida, a destination she continued to enjoy throughout her retirement; she was a proud Snowbird. Marion loved going out for coffee or playing cards with her friends. She was always elegantly dressed, which matched her outgoing, eloquent personality. Her kind and gentle ways will live on in her children & extended family, and in the hearts and minds of anyone who had the privilege of knowing her. She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She saw the best in everyone, and she will be missed tremendously!
In keeping with Marion’s wishes, cremation has taken place, with a private family service following at a later date. Memorial donations in honour of Marion’s life can be made to the charity of your choice, and these would be greatly appreciated by the family.
