(née Marshall) (85)

Our cherished mother, grandmother, and great grandmother passed away peacefully on July 29th at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre in Sudbury, Ontario. She is predeceased by, John (2014), her husband of 58 years. Lenore was born in Schumacher, Ontario on August 13th, 1934 to the late ‘Jack’ and Lucille (Jodouin) Marshall. Lenore lived a full and active life. Her career was, and her legacy is, her family. Our mother is survived by her six children: Gayle (Mark Lemieux) of London, Ontario, Janice (Ido Vettoretti) and Peter (Kathy Latva-Aro) both of Sudbury, Allan (Suzanne Coulombe) of Edmonton, Alberta, Christine Strobele of Boston, Massachusetts and Cathy O’Hara of Bradford, Ontario. She was loved greatly by her 14 grandchildren: Carolyne, Darren (predeceased), Greg, Lisa, Laura, Andrea, Jennifer, Julia, Alexander, Kyle, Renee, Ryan, John, and Liam. She liked to boast about having 10 great grandchildren: Emersyn, Rafaela, Roman, Lillia, Payton, Levi, Cooper, Sydney (predeceased), Hayley, and Scarlett. Not a day went by that she was not on the phone with one of us and despite so many of us calling her frequently, she instantly knew who was calling by the sound of our voice. Before getting married, Lenore was a figure skater out of the McIntyre Arena in Schumacher and traveled North America with the Ice Cycles. Years later, she taught figure skating in Burwash, Ontario. She was also a piano teacher for a number of years and at the age of 50, she got her Bronze Medallion in swimming and became an instructor at the Copper Cliff Pool. Our neighbourhood was vibrant growing up and she took an active role at events at Robinson Playground.  Lenore had a keen interest in all sports and traveled to many marquee figure skating and curling events. At any given time, she had a number of sewing, knitting and craft projects on the go or she was just watching her TV shows with a big bowl of popcorn and a diet coke. Our parents spent many wonderful summers at their cottage on Ice Chest Lake in Timmins. The fun times there have created cherished memories for all of us. Our Mom was always on the go traveling to visit friends and family.  She was not afraid of adventure and has traveled to places like South Africa, Egypt, Italy, Panama, and many places in North America. She and our Dad had an active social life that comprised a large network of friends from Timmins, Schumacher, and Sudbury. There is so much we are going to miss about her, but we know she missed Dad and will be happy to be with him once again. In keeping with her wishes, there will be no visitation. A celebration Life and interment will be held for family. Donations to Maison McCulloch Hospice can be made by cheque or online.
