It is with great sadness that the family of Rosina Alice Marie Morrison (Ashton) announces that Marie passed away peacefully on December 16, 2012 at the age of 96. Marie was born on December 31, 1915 in Lethbridge, Alberta. Marie married Charles Russell “Rusty” Morrison on January 13, 1940. Marie and Charles settled in Salmon Arm, British Columbia and had three children; Larry, Bob and Sherry. Those that knew Marie will remember her great passion for her family and gardening. It was not uncommon to find Marie surrounded by beautifully colored arrangements of flowers.

Marie was predeceased by her husband Charles in 1996. Marie is survived by her two sisters Grace Munro and Margaret Stafford, children Larry (Ella) Morrison, Bob Morrison, Sherry (Lorne) Eliason and five grandchildren Colin Whyte (Nina), Cory Morrison (Christina), Wade Eliason (Apryl), Terie Eliason, Cary Eliason (Michelle) and five great grandchildren.

Marie will be forever missed by her family and friends, at the request of Marie there will not be a service. Marie’s family would like to thank the staff and friends of Marie at Pioneer Lodge, Palliative Care Unit at Shuswap Lake General Hospital and Judy Hutchins.
