Predeceased by her parents Owen and Bridget Duffy, husband Eamon, infant daughter Andrea, and brother Anthony. Leaving to mourn with loving memories her son Sean (Denise), brother Frank (Christina), and numerous nieces and nephews. Throughout her life, Marie developed many close friends and impacted many people through her good humour, joy of life and world class hospitality.

Sean and Denise — We were so very sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. Thinking of you, and all those who loved her. May you find strength in the memories. With deepest sympathy.

Condolences to Sean and Denise and the entire family. She was such a sweet lady. Take care of yourselves and each other during this difficult time.

My condolences to your family Sean. Sad to see another KL person take that final journey. May God bless her

Sean and Denise,,

It was a. great pleasure to get to know Marie not only as your Mom but also as a wonderful neighbour and friend. Over the years we shared many meals and special occasions at your home and over time Marie affectionately became known to us as ‘Mum’. Her daily walks were always interrupted to have a little chit chat or to say hi to ’the girls’. We will miss her presence greatly.

The wonderful thing about memories are you can carry them in your heart forever and I know Marie’s will surely bring a smile.

Thoughts, prayers and hugs to you at this difficult time.

Sean and Denise,

I’m very sorry to hear of your loss. If there is anything you need, please feel free to let me know.

Sean & family, so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Hope your fond memories will help comfort you at this difficult time.

Thinking of you both Sean and Denise. As you prepare to celebrate your mum’ s life , may you find comfort in all your beautiful memories of her.. she was a sweet, kind lady who I am glad to have known. Sympathies to you both and her family and friends. Xo

Sean, Denise and family may you find peace at this difficult time. Look after one another and share your mom’s memory often. I only got to meet your parents once but it was very clear where you received your kind heart from Sean.
Big hugs,

Sean and family:

I’m Theresa and Ed Reid’s granddaughter (Rachael and Jim’s daughter), and I was very sad to hear that your mom has passed away. I have lovely childhood memories of visiting your parents and always appreciating their warmth and kindness. Sending all my love to you from Ontario. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Kind regards,
Mandy Penney
