Marcine (Gardner) Ko


May 24, 1944 – January 11, 2009

Mom passed peacefully after a short, courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her mother Ferne; three children, Todd, Nathan and Willow; brother, Karie; sister, Gay; and grandsons Tanner and Owen. Also the extended Mainprize family; thank you Janna and Brad.

Marcine will be dearly missed at the farmers’ markets selling her healing creams. She spent her lifetime helping others and filled our hearts with love, compassion, spirituality and many delicious meals and gatherings. Marcine was passionate about life, nature, her family and her natural healing products.

Many thanks to the wonderful, caring staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital. Especially to Connie for her support and compassion.

A celebration of Marcine’s life will be in Salmon Arm. Please see for details. All our welcome.

Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm.
