F. Marion Andrew (nee King)

With sadness we wish to announce the quiet passing of Marion on the afternoon of July 10 at Lady Minto Hospital.

Marion will be dearly missed by the family: her sons Jim and Bob and many nieces and nephews. She was the last of a close knit family of brothers, Don and Bill, and sister, Pat.

A humanist of boundless energy. A great ‘people person.’ For some, a second mother. For many, always there for support. Always community minded and a strong supporter of the Arts.

Marion started an arts school in Winnipeg 50 years ago, which is thriving today. She helped start the Fulford OAP and later, with her dear friend Hedvig’s legacy, built the addition to Fulfurd Hall for the OAP.

In the words of others, Marion:

“Touched a lot of people”

“A pillar in the community”


“A fighter”

and a great knitter.

All were Marion, always with a smile, always in service.

Great thanks to the Lady Minto staff and Dr. Leavitt for their wonderful care. A special thanks to the Bessie Dane Foundation for their love and attention to Marion in her last days.

The world is a better place for our Marion. A celebration of Marion’s life will happen in the fall on Salt Spring Island.
