Paine; Marion Elizabeth

Posted By Obits On July 16, 2012 @ 12:30 pm In Obituaries | 17 Comments


Marion Paine, 83 of Liverpool, passed away on July 13th, 2012, in the Queens General Hospital, Liverpool. 

Born in Liverpool she was a daughter of the late James and Evelyn McMaster. 

Marion was an independent young lady, heading to Toronto at an early age. She quickly became a business school graduate and valued employee. She was very proud of the fact that she acquired her license in Toronto and would zip around the city and head back to her South Shore home whenever she could. Over the years Marion travelled extensively throughout Canada and the States. She was extremely proud of her beloved Uncle Brenton and spent many hours with him. Marion was a dedicated volunteer for our community and  worked in the hospital gift shop up until 2010. She curled, bowled, danced and enjoyed life while she could. In later years she was quick to try new things, jet ski, pool, canoeing and was always up for a drive anywhere. A day would rarely go by that you could not see her walking throughout the town (and earrings always matched outfit!).  A sense of humor, that once you understood it, could always make you laugh. Sunday morning breakfasts with her closest friend Polly were an important part of her week and could count on this for many years. A three-legged cat found a beautiful home with “Mimi” and gave her much happiness.  A glass of red wine would always be preceded with the following cheer, “Here’s to it and to it and if you get to it and don’t do it you will never get to it to do it again so here’s to it”. Simple but wonderful words. Marion was a great person, fought a hard battle against dementia and cancer, and leaves family (brother Jimmy) and friends to mourn her loss.

A private service will be held at a later date. Donations can be made to Queens General Hospital Project. Online condolences may be made at www.chandlersfuneral.com

Marion has touched our lives in a very special way. She will be missed by those she touched. Condolences to brother Jimmy and to you Brian, her special ‘son’.

Condolence from Susan MacLeod on July 16th, 2012 4:06 pm

My heart goes out to you Brian, and know that you were a special person in Marion’s life. She cherished the times she had spent with you, especially at the cabin and the many car drives. My mother grew up with Marion and always considered her a friend, even though they did not spend a lot of time together in their later years. However when they did meet they would reminisce about the good times they had as young girls growing up in the same community. Bless you.
Susan MacLeod and Rita Dagley.

Condolence from Tim McDonald on July 17th, 2012 10:04 am

Sorry to hear about Marion’s passing…Brian you were without a doubt the best friend to her over the years. You provided her with love and friendship and included her in countless family gatherings at your home. You gave her attention, you took her for drives and included her in so many things. And in the end when she needed someone the most, you were there for her once again….you did everything and anything that a friend could do. She was very fortunate to have someone like you who cared that much and took so much time to be there for her. You will miss her dearly but I know when you think of Marion you will always smile…she left you with a lot of fond memories.

Condolence from Bob and Lorraine Quinn on July 17th, 2012 12:03 pm

We met Marion McMaster/Paine years ago when she was with the W. S. Kennedy Jones’ law firm and again in 1977 when she sold us “Pleasant Hill” where we built our present home right across from Marion’s family ca.1850 home, her late sister, Grace, and her last surviving sibling, our exceptionally close friend and neighbour, James Brenton McMaster of Winnipeg and Liverpool. In recent times, Marion spent many hours with her brother, almost daily, and was a great comfort and support to him. Lorraine and I wish to convey our deepest sympathy to Jim. Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss.

Condolence from Brooke Carfagnini (and Betty Hill) on July 24th, 2012 4:51 pm

I have just watched this beautiful tribute to Marion with my mother Betty (Simpson) Hill. Marion and Mum were good friends since they were youngsters and shared many happy times. Marion was living in East St. John, and they had good teenage fun during the war years. This was also when Mum met my dad, a sailor stationed in St. John, and she left the Maritimes to move with him to Ontario. But Marion and Mum kept their friendship going strong over many miles and many years. And we, Mum’s children, also made our own friendships with Marion as we grew older with our own families. I have fond memories of visiting Marion with my own children,
Mum’s last visit with Marion was in the summer of 2008 when her four daughters accompanied her back to her beloved Maritimes. Seeing Marion was one of the highlights and will always be a wonderful memory.

Condolence from Donnie and Marle’ne Croft on July 25th, 2012 6:20 am

Sending our prayers and condolences to Marions Family.and Friends.She was a very wonderfull lady.always sharing stories and making everyone in her presence happy..she will be greatly missed ..R.I.P. Marion

Condolence from Allison Hill on July 26th, 2012 10:39 am

I am another of Betty Hill’s daughters and was very sad to hear of Marion’s passing. I cherish many wonderful memories of visits with Marion – the times when she came to Thunder Bay to visit the Hill clan, a dinner we shared when she was living in Calgary, and during the trips we made to beautiful Liverpool. One of my fondest memories is from the summer of 1993, during an East Coast trip with my then 12 year old son and my friend Rosemary. We enjoyed a perfect day at the beach (with Marion joining us in the waves) and a fun evening while Marion shared entertaining stories of her youth. As my Dad would declare “that Marion is a real character”, one that we loved and will dearly miss.

Condolence from Jannie (& Mike) Busniuk on July 29th, 2012 7:19 am

I am also a daughter of Betty (Simpson) Hill. Due to my husband’s hockey job, we spent lots of time with Marion in Halifax, plus visits in Philadelphia and Calgary. The very best place to visit with her was Liverpool – her home(s), her pets, “her” Atlantic beaches and Mersey River. We will miss her loud laugh, her “one-of-a-kind’ comments, and her teenage memories of Saint John life with my Mum during the war years.

Condolence from Joan Parker on August 5th, 2012 6:23 pm

To the friends and family of Marion Paine,
It has been quite a few years since I last saw her in Saint John, NB. I remember her as a happy lady who loved her dog Pal dearly. It is wonderful to know how she blossomed in her later years with dear friends and her volunteer work.
