Rest In Peace Marion Bast, heaven received a beautiful Angel.

Marion, beloved sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend, will be greatly missed. Marion was kind and compassionate towards everyone, which gave her beauty that went far beyond the surface. Her ability to stay positive through hard times showed us all the importance of faith.

Marion was a dedicated partner to Joe for 54 years, including 45 years working together as a team at Joe Bast Construction. They shared so many wonderful years together but also worked through some recent health challenges that they overcame. Both were cancer survivors and made it through because of their unwavering love for each other. Their love and commitment to each other is a reminder of the sanctity of marriage blessed by God.

Marion treasured family time with her children and grandchildren. Many special times were spent at Cochin and Branch Lake cabins where family and friends were always made welcome. Many years of winter vacations were enjoyed at Fairmont Hot Springs where her children and several of the grandchildren learned to ski. Annual trips with Joe to Mexico, Vegas, Arizona and Victoria were her favourites. Marion always put in so much effort to make holidays special for her family through activities, traditions, food, games and lots of love. Marion never let her children and grandchildren forget how special they were to her. She loved scrapbooking, creating themed albums and making personalized cards for everyone for all occasions with special messages.

Marion was a happy, positive person with a beautiful, infectious laugh. She always had her hair done, her nails polished and her beautiful blue eyes sparkled with joy that she shared with everyone around her. Marion had a close relationship with her five remaining sisters and loved getting together with them for many fun times.

In so many ways the very best parts of Marion will continue to live on in her children Adrian (Claudette) and Calvin (Jennifer); and her grandchildren Brynn, Callista, Eric and Dane who were blessed to have her in their lives. We will hold our memories close to our hearts and know that Marion is watching over all of us, our guardian angel. We love you so much, it is with great difficulty we say farewell, until we meet again.
