Mary Watson Dear Ross and David, I was so sad to read of Marion's death. I well remember playing with her - usually daily - when we were all kids. Your Dad had built the playhouse, the "merry-go-round", the galloping horse and we seemed to live in enchantment every time we all got together with all the neighbourhood children gathering at the Keeler home. I remember, too, sitting in the the breakfast nook, with everyone, while David entertained us with "noises"!!!!! (Sorry David, had to say it didn't I!) We used to have baseball games in the tall grass at times, while the unused lots behind the service station were available. I could neither throw the ball straight nor hit it. Never a sports person! Your Mom and my Mom worked together in the Keeler dairy bar, and Sonny (Earl) Kraul used to work there when he wasn't at the ballet school in Toronto. The whole place was a Keeler enterprise and both the home and business were fun places to be. Such happy memories! Such a grand family. Such wonderful welcomings when everyone got together. It was a wonderful time to grow up! Everyone will always be a part of my memory - and the memories were all wonderful.
Karen Anderson ( Davies)Dear Ross and David, So very sorry to read of Marion's death. Many fun times and memories of the Keeler's gas station and dairy bar , teasing Marion about her boyfriends and in general probably just being a pest ha ha.! as she was sunbathing in the yard. It is so good to have the fun and wonderful memories.
Nancy MurrayMy deepest sympathy to the family of Marion. It was a pleasure to know her and times spent with her were very special. Such a shame for this beautiful lady to have suffered but she is now pain free and dancing in Heaven. Keep smiling my Friend. You will be missed.
Margaret ChambersMarion was a classy lady, a good friend, and a co-worker for over 20 years. Many happy memories. She will be greatly missed but she is now at peace.
Margaret Togni FoxMarion was a dear friend. She was a loving and caring person and there was finesse in everything she touched She was there through troubled times as we lost our husbands around the same time. Her frustration with her computer was paramount and I will miss her phone calls for help with her printer or her laptop for seemingly missing information. She was one of a kind. Rest in peace my dear friend. I will miss you ❤️❤️
Lynn Nash Dave & Ross & Family, So sorry to hear of Marion's passing. She was always my favorite cousin, always so beautiful and kind to a youngster who adored her.

Our deepest sympathies & kindest thoughts your way. She's in a better place now.
