It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marie Ellen Cavanagh beloved wife and companion of Peter of Calgary, for forty-five years, who passed away on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at the age of 66 years after a seven month battle with metastasized lung cancer.
Marie was born March 12, 1945 in Saint John, NB, elder daughter of the late Sterling (Tim) Allaby and the late Theresa Marie Beamish. Marie was an avid golfer with the Douglasdale ladies, bowler with the Acadia ladies, as well as a fine gardener, homemaker, and a superb cook.
