Mary Elizabeth “Marie” (Greenough) Munro
January 22, 1922 – February 13, 2015
Marie passed away peacefully at St. Jude’s Anglican Home with family by her side. Marie was predeceased by her husband Bill, grandson Graham, brothers Lloyd and Clark and sister Erba. She is survived by her sister Lois, daughters Kathleen (Ian), Wendy (Jeff) and Barbara (John), sons Bill (Kate) and Bob (Jacquie), grandchildren Tim (Brittany), Julie (Brock), Sarah, Alex (Alanna) and Emma Leigha and great grandchildren Jack and Finn.
Marie was an enthusiastic gardener, loved to sew and painted in watercolors. She and Bill took their young family on a yearlong adventure to England, where the kids went to school and spent time in Europe. Marie and Bill also enjoyed many travels together. Marie loved being with her family and going to the beach house in Point Roberts. The family first vacationed at Maple Beach in 1967. They so much enjoyed the Point that they built a family cabin overlooking Boundary Bay: the family continues to enjoy Point Roberts to this day.
Marie was an active member of Knox United Church and volunteered at First United Church for many years. She will be forever in the hearts of her family and friends. The family is very grateful for the care and support provided by the staff of St. Jude’s Anglican Home. A memorial service was held on February 25 at Knox United Church, Vancouver.
