November 27, 1935 – October 14, 2012
Marie Bernice McNeely passed away peacefully on October 14, 2012 at the age of 76 years.
Marie was born in Calgary, where she raised her family and enjoyed a career as a social worker at Alberta Children’s Hospital, Alberta Child Welfare, Calgary Remand Center, and Growing Opportunities in Strathmore. Since her diagnosis of ovarian cancer, Marie was grateful for the many opportunities to connect with friends and family and share in their love and kind thoughts. Marie’s prairie roots and values equipped her for a rewarding and successful life. She strongly believed in the importance of family and community and wished for this to be her lasting memory and contribution. She will be greatly missed.
Left to cherish her memory are her children Greg, David, Joni and Gord; their spouses Tricia, Dave and Carljn; seven grandchildren Shea, Carlyn, Alayna, Michael, Christopher, Amber and Kayla; and many relatives and friends.
Marie was predeceased by her parents, John and Tekla Przenioslo (Prosno), and her sister Joan Robinson.
Cremation has taken place. Marie’s wishes were for a family internment at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
