MARION CURRIE

Passed on: September 24th, 2013

Marion Patricia Currie passed away Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at the age of 80 years. Pat was born June 3, 1933 to Helen and Lorne Hicks. She grew up in Simpson, Saskatchewan with extended family and many friends. A handsome young man who played the sax with the Hicks Orchestra caught her eye and in 1953 Pat married Stan Currie. They lived in Moose Jaw and soon centered their lives on their four sons. Pat & Stan provided a home of opportunity, security and challenge for their boys, and happy memories of their Mom & Dad come easily at this time. As the boys left home for adult lives, Pat worked for the Moose Jaw Catholic Schools as a librarian. Pat & Stan retired to Vernon, British Columbia where they enjoyed the company of friends, of Dot & Bill, of Ray and LaReine, and of visiting family. It was at this time that Pat began a long and determined struggle with Multiple Myeloma and Parkinson’s. They returned to Saskatchewan where, against all expectations, together they shared in the growing years of their five grandkids, seeing all of them become adults.
Pat is predeceased by her parents; her aunt, Margaret Gibbs; infant sister, Donna; brothers, Howard and Don; and by her youngest son, Dale. She is remembered with love by her husband, Stan; her sons, Wade, Neil & Grant; daughter-in-law, Jean, Lyn; and grandchildren, Ewan, Shamus, Chad, Heather & Paige. She will be missed by her siblings & their families, Mona & Marcel, Ken & Carol, Rick & Lolly, and Caroline.
Many friends from Moose Jaw were important to Mom all her life. She was a Kinette, a frequenter of the music festivals, and a charter gabber of “Club”. She enjoyed many people through Stan’s trapshooting and the boys’ activities. She was never fazed by an invasion of a dozen or two young people into her basement and refrigerator.
A Celebration of Pat’s Life will take place on Pat & Stan’s 60th wedding anniversary, Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 2:00 p.m., from Acadia McKague’s Funeral Centre, 915 Acadia Drive, (North of 8th Street in Saskatoon). Arrangements entrusted to Lisa Bos, 306-955-1600. www.acadiamckaguesfuneralcentre.com
