She passed peacefully at home after a short battle with Ovarian Cancer surrounded by her immediate family.

There are not enough words to describe the impact this immeasurable loss has had on her family.

She will be greatly missed by her family and countless friends whom she cherished so deeply.

The family would like to thank the staff at Sunnybrook Hospital's Odette Centre for their impeccable care and compassion during Marie's journey with cancer.
