THERIEN, Marianne (nee Kendrick)


∼September 24, 1949 – August 9, 2017∼

Daughter of the late Eva and Harold Kendrick. Predeceased by husband Dayn and many dear family members. Mother to Dayna. Sister to Evalee Nino, Janet Callahan, Marney Kendrick and Susan Kendrick. Soul sister to Bonnie Petrowich. Aunt to many.

Marianne passed away quietly at her cottage on St. Joseph Island, Ontario after a short illness. She was surrounded by the love and kindness of many family members and friends. She lived her life fiercely and fought for what she felt was right, especially for those she loved.

“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.” (Jane Austen).

A private gathering will be held at the family cottage on St. Joseph Island.

We thank the health care providers who supported her so compassionately, particularly Dr. Sharon Buehner, Amy Shoust and Lisa Kendrick.

Donations may be made in Marianne’s memory to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton or Matthews Memorial Hospital in Richards Landing.

Arrangements entrusted to the Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre 492 Wellington St. E, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario P6A 2L9 705-759-2522.
