It is with heavy hearts that the family of Marion Estella Thibodeau (Addington), age 80 of Brighton, announce her passing on March 8, 2022 in Tideview Terrace, Digby. Marion was born on August 20, 1941, to the late Edward and Elaine Addington of Little River.
Marion attended St Pat’s Business School in Digby, was a bookkeeper, worked in the mink, raced stock cars in her younger years, volunteered for the Canadian Cancer Society and was an exceptional mom and grandmother. Marion was a kind-hearted, generous soul, loved by many, who was always willing to help where she could and who she could. Marion was famous for her quick turn around time for a hot supper for a last-minute crowd and of course for her highly demanded “hard cookies”.
Marion was predeceased by her loving husband, Charles, after 62 years of marriage. Marion leaves behind her children, Charles (Jennifer) Thibodeau of Whale Cove; Michelle (Clyde) Thibodeau Wagner of Harmony; and Mark Thibodeau, Meteghan; grandchildren Chris Thibodeau, Sandy Cove; Jamie Thibodeau, Sandy Cove; Heather Thibodeau, Meteghan; Alicia Thibodeau-Silkie, Alberta; Adrienne Thibodeau, Alberta; Noah Wagner, Harmony; Spencer Wagner, Kingston; Grace Wagner, Harmony; and eight great-grandchildren. Marion’s constant sidekick, her Blue Heeler Buddy, will always miss her love, scratches and treats. Marion was very blessed to have special lifelong friends in her life, whom she always treasured.
In addition to her parents and husband, Marion was predeceased by her step-father Theodore Teed; her brothers Donnie Addington and Bobby Addington.
