Eborall, Marion – It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marion Eborall (nee Parker, 1925-2018). She was predeceased by her husband Bill in 2004. She is survived by her three daughters- Sandy, Pat and Judy; two sons-in-law- Bill and Tom; four grandchildren- Bill, Shannon, Mandy and Tom; their partners- Jennifer, Todd and Sarah and eleven great-grandchildren- Andrew, Laura, Brian, Dakota, Parker, Ravynn, Brandon, Zoe, Morgan, Kai and Kingston.
Marion spent most of her life living in Beamsville as did three generations of her family before her. She loved her hometown. Even though she moved away for a few years she could not wait to come back. She attended Jacob Beam Public School and Beamsville High School, then trained as a hairdresser. She was an accomplished craftsperson, creating beautiful ceramics, porcelain lace dolls, knitted afghans, quilts and creative scarves. She loved beautiful surroundings and one of her favourite hobbies was to decorate a home, move and do it again. Marion was a true matriarch, holding family together, making us a tight knit unit, enjoying holidays together. Christmas and birthdays held a special meaning for Marion and her calendar was marked with everyone’s special day and she was sure never to skip an acknowledgement of that day. Marion was not always the easiest mother in the world. She could be bossy; she always spoke her mind; diplomacy was not her forte. She loved to observe and interact with the people around her. We will remember her with love as we always knew how much she loved us.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Fireside Room at Tallman’s in Vineland on Sunday, April 8 from 2 – 4 p.m. If desired, donations to C.N.I.B would be appreciated by the family.
