Predeceased by loving husband of 49 years James Little; brothers Ernie, Nelson, and Howard; and sister Marjory. Marion is survived by daughter Colleen (Phillip) Cantin; grandchildren Alice Robbins (nee Ovington) and Patrick (Mike), as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Born in Maple Ridge, B.C., Marion moved to many places and worked various jobs; including as a clerk at Woodward’s in Vancouver and at Boeing making bolts for airplanes during the Second World War. She settled in the Alberni Valley in 1953 where she raised her family with her husband Jim. Marion was passionate about her family and loved being a mother, and later, a grandmother. She enjoyed arts and crafts and liked to knit, make ceramics, and do jigsaw puzzles and crosswords. Marion will be dearly missed by her family.
