BROOKS, Marion (Taylor) - It is with great sadness we announce the unexpected passing, Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at the Halifax Infirmary Site, QE II Hospital. Born in 1928 in Greenwich, NS, she was the daughter of the late Vaughan and Grace (Anderson) Taylor, Hantsport. She was predeceased by her husband Bob Brooks.
Marion cherished the beauty of the Annapolis Valley and memories of growing up in Hantsport where she was an Apple Blosson Princess. She thoroughly enjoyed her profession as lab technologist, working in Point Edward, Yarmouth and Halifax (VG). Marion belonged to IODE for many years (Leif Erikson Chapter, Yarmouth, Marquis of Rockingham, Halifax) and served as Brownie leader in Yarmouth. In her pastime she played in various bridge clubs and continued to cook and try new recipes. Travel was a very important part of her life and she loved the many experiences it afforded. The cottage and close friends at Lake Annis meant the world to her and she considered one of the best places to be was sitting on the veranda by the lake with the hummingbirds buzzing by.
Marion was known for her kindness, generosity and creativity and people marveled at her constant good nature. She will be so missed.
Besides her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her sister, Ruby O’Dell, niece Jill O’Dell, and nephew Carmen O’Dell. She is survived by her children, Randy (Maureen) and Beth of Halifax; sisters, Bertha (Raymond) Provencher, Halifax and Nadine Taylor (Bob Fetterly) of Cobble Hill, BC as well as her nieces Heather O’Dell, Lorraine O’Dell and Renee Provencher; nephew, Corey O’Dell and someone she considered the brother she never had, cousin, Capt. Ray Riley (Ret’d).
