Marion Shyrly Coolen

Marion Coolen was born on January 4, 1933 in Beauprè, Quebec, and sadly passed away on August 27, 2010 in Salmon Arm, BC.

Mom worked in the Canadian Armed Forces where she met and married her life long partner, and our Dad, Harold Coolen. After Dad’s passing in 2002, Mom held on for eight years, but missed him greatly. They are finally back together, along with their dog Beau, and our brother Bill.

Mom, you never had to try, you always gave us 100%. We will miss you forever. Your warm embrace, your smiling face, and your drying of our tears. We thank you for the love you showed us, the precious years you gave us, and the happiness you taught us. And when we all must come your way, we’ll all be home, forever.

You’ll always be in our hearts.

The service will be a private family memorial.
