December 10, 1930 – Carragana, SK
February 27, 2014 – Calgary, AB
It is with great sadness we announce that Marie Frances Haywood (Nana, Aunt Marie), at age 83 gently passed away, at home, in the loving arms of her granddaughter on February 27, 2014.
Her kind, sweet nature and quiet humour attracted many friends at the Bowness Seniors’ Centre. She had a special place in her heart for cats too. Marie retired in Kelowna where she indulged her love of the outdoors through her involvement with the Central Okanagan Naturalist Club and Kelowna Nordic Ski Club. Cross-country skiing, hiking, botany and painting were her favorite activities. She moved to Calgary in 2004 to be closer to family. While still remaining active, she also enjoyed working at the Bowness Seniors’ Centre up until months of her passing. Special thanks to the Palliative Home Care team for helping make Marie’s stay at her granddaughter’s a time to treasure.
She is survived by her daughter Carla Hauta; her three grandchildren Nyomi, Davin and Damien. She was close to family Wayne and Myra Haywood and the Sciban’s.
A Celebration of Marie’s life will be held on Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 1:30pm at the Bowness Seniors’ Centre (6422 35 AVENUE N.W.). Donation’s in Memory of Marie may be made to the Bowness Seniors’ Centre. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
