Marion is survived by her children Wendy Wandio (Bill), Linda Boisvert (Don), Laura Chance (Mike), and Patrick Martin (Melinda Lane); nine grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; one sister, Eunice Martin; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, Allan Cameron Martin in 2009; by her brothers Albert Abraham, Lawrence Abram (Jessie), and Gordon Abram (Lillian); and by her sisters Jean Gaetz (Lou), Edna Nowicki (Joe), and Beatrice Petryshyn (Mike).
