Obituary of Marion Burgess


Peacefully on November 27, 2018.


Survived by her husband Bill of 65 years, her daughters, Kathy (Stan) Read, Lynda (Paul) Crago, Debbie (John) Snowden and Janice Burgess; her grandchildren Meghan, Mackenzie, Jennifer, Jessica, Michelle and Trevor; 7 great-grandchildren and brother-in-law Wayne Burgess. She was predeceased by her parents, Thomas Luther and Florence Harvey of Roseneath, Ontario and her parents-in-law Arthur and Vera Burgess.


First and foremost a wife, mom, and beloved grammy, by her example, she taught us what unconditional love is all about. She was born a nurse.  From early childhood, she was determined to become a nurse and despite many obstacles, she made it happen. She graduated as a registered nurse from Oshawa General Hospital in 1953 and dedicated her professional career to nursing the community of Bowmanville, finishing as head nurse in emergency at Bowmanville Memorial Hospital. As a wife, mom, friend and nurse, she has touched the lives of many.


A Memorial Gathering will be held at NORTHCUTT ELLIOTT FUNERAL HOME, 53 Division St. Bowmanville, on Saturday December 1st from 2 - 4 pm. Memorial donations made to Bowmanville Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
