Marion Benedict Remembered

Marion Christine Benedict

Marion Christine Benedict

 Thursday, March 17-2011, Mom passed away @ 9:10 a.m.
My brother John (Stacy)
and sister Sherry were at her side and then I shortly after.

Mom was under Hospice Care for the two weeks prior and was well cared for by Nurse Eleanor Parnell, Who lovingly made Moms passing much easier to deal with for us all.

On Saturday , March 26,2011, Sherry, Stacy & Steve  followed Marion's last wishes to the letter . . .

At the Moose Lodge on 5 mile we had get together to remember Mom and little something to eat and drink.

Mom did not want a funeral service, But she said it was ok to have a small get together and talk about the good old days and make a toast to all the fond memories.

She also directed us to spread her ashes over by Point Pelee, Canada, where we had a cottage back in the 60s and where we spread my Dads ashes back in 1995.

  I'm planing on planing on placing a  small amount of Moms ashes in to three Chanel No. 5 perfume containers, The same perfume bottles I've seen on Moms vanity since I can remember. one for Sherry , one for John and one for Me. Mom and I talked about this shortly after Dad passed and she was all for the idea especially when I told her my plans to have a small plot in my yard decorated in her style ( with pink carnations) and that if I ever move I will take her with me.



Born in Syracuse New York

Marion Christine Ambrose was born to Edwin and Frida Ambrose, Both from Norway.

They come over on " The Big Boat" through Ellis Island an the met at a Norwegian social club.

Mom had two brothers, Ed passed away two years ago this month and Martin who passed away last June, 

Peder Stangeland, Klara Stangeland and Olava Stangeland were Fridas brother and sisters from Norway. I'm still trying to get further information on the Ambrose family.
