Obituary of Marion Pretty



It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing our beloved wife and mother, Marion, late of Balgonie district, SK, on Monday, January 1, 2018 at the age of 66 years, following a brief but hard fought battle against ALS. She was predeceased by her mother, Phyllis Ashton and brother Bill Ashton. Marion is survived by her husband Larry; daughter, Joleen (Scott) Wilson; grandson, Wyatt; son, Jason (Micheline); granddaughter, Adelyn; father, Edgar Ashton; sister, Kathy Fele; brother, Leon (Diane) Ashton; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Marion was surrounded by family and friends the months and moments leading up to her death. Her amazing, strong, loving husband, Larry, was there holding her hand until the end, after a marriage of 47 years. Anyone who knew Marion knows what an amazing, selfless, caring, hardworking, talented person she was. She cherished her time with her kids and her grandchildren. Marion put more time and effort into her beautiful home and yard than one would think possible, with time to spare to be an amazing wife, mom and grandmother. She will be deeply missed. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 302 King Street, Balgonie, SK on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Friends and family so wishing may make donations, in memoriam, to the ALS Society of Saskatchewan, 90C Cavendish Street, Regina, SK S4N 5G7.
