Marion Burton passed away at her residence in Twillingate on Friday, January 28th, 2022, at the age of 82 years.
On January 31, 2022 we as a family will celebrate the life of our dear wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother (more affectionately known as "Nanny Burton"). As hard as it is to say good-bye, watching her struggle as time went on, was much harder.
Marion was born to Robert and Annabelle Dalley on January 10, 1940 and grew up in a loving and caring home with her fourteen brothers and sisters. She married Sterling on April 9, 1959 and together raised six children. Later Marion and Sterling would be blessed with eleven grandchildren who they adored and twelve great-grandchildren which they were beyond proud and happy to have visits from. Marion loved to quilt, knit, cook and bake, but she enjoyed spending time with her family most of all. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She was predeceased by: parents Robert and Annabelle Dalley; sisters: Lucy Woolfrey, Gertie (Donald) Young and Jean Dalley; brothers: Ronald (Daphne), George, Stanley (Lillian), Harold (Daphne) and Wally; sisters-in-law Barbara Dalley and Barbara Dalley: and brother-in-law Warrick Young.
