Obituary of Coralie Mary Marshall



Coralie Mary Marshall (née Richardson) passed away peacefully at the age of 90 surrounded by  family and friends at her home in Cedarvale Lodge in Keswick, Ontario on February 10, 2019.  Predeceased by her husband Duncan Wright Marshall. Loving mother of Jim Marshall (Teri) and dear stepmother of Susan Stevenson (Wayne), Wendy Shelley (Richard), Bob Marshall (Dale) and Shelley Dorman (Steve).  Dear sister of Kathleen Tier (Roy, deceased), Joyce Julian (Peter) and predeceased by her sister Elsa Richardson.  Cherished Gran of John, Andrew, Adrian, Bronwen, Meghan, Rachael, Duncan, Shawn, Elise, Keiffer, Burke, Kiera, Daelan, Gallagher and predeceased by grandsons Robert and Christopher.  Loving GG (Great Gran) of Anastasia, Shayle, Temperance, Ehmber, Kian, Ava, Piper, Jack, Quinn and Camryn. Cherished Auntie and cousin to her special relatives in England.

Born in London, England on May 23, 1928, Coralie had a full life.  After the war she attended secretarial school.  She later joined the Women's Royal Naval Service and was stationed in Cornwall.  Coralie then did her nursing training at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and went on to do her midwife training in London.  She met Duncan on a nursing assignment in Sudbury, Ontario and they were married in England in 1964.  She moved to Montreal and had a busy life raising 5 children.  Coralie and Duncan spent their time between Montreal and Amherst Island where they built their retirement home. Coralie retired to Amherst Island with Duncan in 1983.  She was actively involved in the Women's Institute and St. Paul's Presbyterian Church.  She joined the art group, took T'ai Chi and was active in island life.  She moved to Cedarvale Lodge in Keswick, Ontario in 2016 and made many friends.  Always singing and being dramatic with the residents and staff, she proudly took on the nickname of "Broadway".

Coralie was kind, caring, very outgoing and had a great sense of humour. She loved music, flowers, gardening and having a cup of tea with friends.  She will be sadly missed.

Many thanks to the staff at Cedarvale Lodge and to her dear friend and caregiver Ann Marie.
