Margaret Marie Koponen

1932 – 2016

Marie passed away peacefully on April 8, 2016 at the age of 83 with her family by her side after a lengthy illness with dementia. She is survived by her son, David and his wife, Tammy; son, Jim (Jimmy) and granddaughters, Stephanie and Jaclynn (Tyler) and their mother, Cindy (Denny) and many extended family. She was born in Toronto and later lived in Peterborough, Ontario. Marie had a career working for McLean Hunter Cable TV. She spent her summers in Parry Sound on Blind Bay surrounded by many friends and family. In her later years, she moved to the Okanagan Valley and bought a house in Naramata where she watched her granddaughters grow up. All her life Marie had lots of friends who she enjoyed being with and never missed an opportunity to have fun. All were welcome at her home. She loved the outdoors and her garden. We would like to extend sincere thanks to the entire staff and management, past and present, of the Summerland Seniors Village for looking after our Mom for the past nearly 10 years, making it her home and keeping her safe, secure and comfortable. The friendship and respect and all the unconditional care and compassion that has been provided through this time is greatly appreciated. A Celebration of Marie’s Life will be held at a later date. Our Mom, Gramma will be dearly missed – David Condolences may be shared by visiting
