CHRISTIE, Marlene Beatrice

On Friday December 31, 2021 Marlene Christie passed away after a long and full life. Marlene was the beloved wife of Bob Christie (2007) and loving mother of Rosemarie, Pat, Tom and Rob. She will always be remembered by her grandchildren Heidi, Genevieve, Gabrielle, Hayden and Liam. Marlene will be missed by her large extended family of brothers and sisters and their families. The girls’ weekends will not be the same without her.

Marlene was a Registered Nurse; graduating from St. Mary’s in Kitchener (1958). During her many years at Hotel Dieu Hospital in St Catharines, Marlene worked in obstetrics, surgical and emergency departments. Marlene also compassionately cared for many friends and family in times of sickness and crisis. She was an active volunteer at the Out of the Cold program and at Hospice Niagara. Marlene had many creative talents and could turn her hand to almost anything -sewing, gardening and cooking as well as her more hidden talents of carpentry and electrical repair. Everything accomplished accompanied by a song. She loved to sing.

An immense thank you to everyone at Upper Canada Lodge for all their love, care and compassionate support. In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Parish, 220 Victoria St. S, Walkerton, on Friday, May 6, 2022 at 11 a.m. An Inurment will follow Mass at Calvary Cemetery, 1446 Yonge Street, Walkerton. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or to Wellspring Niagara.
