Deaths-Marie-EppMarie played guitar and mandolin. She attended Canadian Bible College, Regina. She loved baseball and Skip-Bo with her children. She worked as a dietary aide and mail sorter. Avid letter-writer, texter and Facebooker, Marie delighted in being a modern grandmother. She was committed to the church and volunteerism. As early retirees, Marie and John did short-term mission trips with Youth With A Mission and Mennonite Central Committee. Marie served at the MCC relief store, Kelowna, B.C. Marie and John moved to Abbotsford, B.C., in 2006. Their idea of a good time was to join Mennonite Disaster Service and do a dirty job after an earthquake. She died surrounded by family.
