After her courageous fight with lung cancer, we regret the passing of Marion Jean Shippy at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on August 20, 2007, at the age of 71 years. Marion was a longtime resident of Vernon and will be remembered by many in the community. She is predeceased by her husband, Vance, who was her rock and inspiration, who passed away in March of this year. Marion will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughters Brenda and April, her son Bruce, and her step-children Ron, Irene, Cathy and Lori; and all their families. Marion is also survived by her mother, Agnus; her siblings Alan, Gerald and Jo-Anne in Ontario, and their families. A Celebration of Life Service was held on Saturday, August 25, at 10:30 A.M., in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, with Mr. Brian Jackson officiating. Interment followed in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, at her request, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Marion to the Canadian Diabetic Association, Box 1301, Vernon V1T 6N6, or to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, 2101 – 32 Street, Vernon V1T 9Z9. Arrangements were in the care of VERNON DIGNITY
