Marion was born in Inglis, MB to Winnie (Haas) and Henry Shappert. She was the youngest of three children. After moving to several small towns with her father’s CPR work, the family settled in Pierson, MB where Marion spent her formative years.
After completing high school, Marion moved to Brandon, MB and started work with the Toronto Dominion Bank as a teller. It was in Brandon that her three children were born, and Marion became a stay at home mom. In 1968, the family moved to Dauphin and in 1972, Marion returned to the workforce with Parkland Plastics and then she was employed with the Royal Bank, retiring in 1994.
Marion was an avid gardener, well known for her beautiful yard, especially her tea roses. She loved to read, often spending a Sunday afternoon reading a book by her favourite author John Grisholm. Her baking was second to none, we could always count on a treat when we visited. Marion loved the sport of curling. She learned the sport in Brandon and continued to curl in Dauphin. She loved to compete in several leagues, bonspiels, and provincial championships. In her later years, many nights would find her in front of the TV cheering on her favourite curlers.
Marion is survived by daughter Dawn Steiner of Dauphin, son Myles Chapin (Linda) of Sorrento, B.C. and daughter Tami Chapin (Bruce) of Dauphin, and many nieces and nephews.
Marion was predeceased by her mother and father, sister Marj, brother Ken and son-in-law Al Steiner.
In accordance with Marion’s wishes, there will be no service. Cremation has taken place and a private family interment will be held at a later date. If friends so desire, donations in Marion’s memory may be made to the Palliative Care Unit at the Dauphin Regional Health Centre 625 3rd St. S.W. Dauphin, Manitoba R7N 1R7.
The family would like to thank the palliative care team at the Dauphin Hospital, we appreciated your care and compassion.
