With heavy hearts our family announces the passing of our mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, Marie Geiger, on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012 at the Dryden Regional Health Centre in Dryden, Ont. with family by her side.
She was born July 10, 1943.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Dawn (Pat) Magee of Kenora, Ont., Ben of Vermilion Bay, Ont., Shelly (Jason) Penner of Stettler, Alta., and Doug (Kathleen) of Vermilion Bay, Ont.; and grandchildren, Sean Magee of Kenora, Ont., Kevin (Sarah) Magee of Ottawa, Ont., Dakota and Colton Penner of Stettler, Alta., and Jessica and Damian Geiger of Vermilion Bay, Ont.
She also will be missed by her siblings from the Fort Frances, Ont. area, Shirley (Tom) Morrish, Tom (Chris) Logan, Bonnie Turriff, and Linda (Ernie) Jones and their families; and her in-laws from B.C., Billy (Crystal) Geiger, Ruth Ann Lubenow, Violet (Larry) Zaluski, Leonard Kozak, and Bobby Kozak and families.
She was predeceased by her husband, Ben, in 2006; parents, Tom and Helen Logan; brother, Larry; sister, Wendy Buechler; and in-laws, Bertold Geiger, Sadie (Anderson) Kozak, and Bill Kozak.
Marie was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She enjoyed baking, cooking, knitting, crocheting, and reading.
Until Lupus, an auto-immune disease that prevented her from being outside, she also enjoyed her garden, flowers, apple trees, and fishing with her family.
She was proud of her grandchildren and their accomplishments.
Cremation has taken place.
Funeral services will be held Friday, Sept. 28, 2012 at 9 a.m. at the Dryden Community Funeral Home.
Interment will follow in the Vermilion Bay Cemetery.
If friends so desire, in memoriam donations may be made to the Lupus Foundation of Ontario.
