RICHARDS, Marie Dec. 1925 – Dec. 2012. It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom and Gramma Marie Richards. Marie was born in North Sydney, Nova Scotia and spent the early years of her life working in the Navy. This is where she met her husband Larry of 67 years. Following the war, they moved to the West Coast and started a family of four children. We were all so proud of mom as she crafted out her life from a very humble beginning. The courage, tenacity and love that she showed every waking minute played greatly into who we all became as people. Mom dedicated her entire life to her family and working together with Dad achieved many great things. She had a long and happy life and we know in the end she had achieved all she had hoped for and more. Marie is survived by her husband Larry, children Sharon (Bruce), Len (Linda), Jan (Tom) and Don (Paula). She was a wonderful Gramma to Brian, Michael, Craig, Jeff, Kaitie, Tommy, Olivia & Sean and a wonderful Great Gramma to Eric, Alex, Georgia, Owen and Brenden. Also survived by her niece Joni (Paul).
We miss you so much Mom (Gramma)
