Marion Doreen Ayers (Smith)

Born in the Smith family farmhouse on July 12, 1918. Marion passed away peacefully at Hilltop House in Squamish on Monday January 13, 2020. Marion’s earlier years were spent working on her family farm in Sanctuary Saskatchewan. At age 15 Marion’s mother was confined to a wheelchair with Rheumatoid arthritis. Marion took over tending to farm work as well as caring for her mother until her parents retired to Calgary. There Marion met and married Howard Ayers on August 3, 1949. They lived in Vancouver where Marion worked as a chocolate dipper. In 1962 Marion and Howard moved to the Pemberton Valley to farm with their four children. Marion contributed to her community working with the United Church Women’s group catering for community events. She acted as Pemberton’s “Welcoming Committee” for a time. Marion enjoyed being creative and for many years decorated cakes for birthdays, weddings and other special occasions. Marion faithfully committed to weekly exercise classes and often instructed the class. One of her fellow fitness class members commented, “Not everyone gets a 95 years young instructor!” Marion valued her friendships and often organized group birthday luncheons with friends.

Marion enjoyed her independence, driving daily to “town” into her 90s to enjoy a cup of “half and half coffee” with friends and family. Marion was well known for her stylish hats she always wore.

Marion is predeceased by her husband Howard Ayers and her son Grant Ayers. She is survived by her daughter Brenda McLeod (Geoff), son Myron Ayers, son Lyle Ayers, and daughter-in-law Karen Ayers. Marion’s grandchildren (Brenda) Kirsten, Cara, Kori, Megan (Myron) Shane, Ryan, Sarah (Grant) Brandon, Shelby (Lyle) Todd, Amy, Calvin will cherish their many wonderful memories. Marion’s (GG’s) 14 great grandchildren were blessed to know and love their GG making her pictures, cards and giving her lots of hugs.
A tribute to Marion will be held at the Pemberton Community Church on March 8, 2020 at 2:00 pm followed by a get together at the Pemberton Legion Branch #201.
