Marie Glass

May 20, 2024

 

Marie’s family is heartbroken to announce her passing at The Pines on Monday, May 20, 2024 after a long and defiant war with Parkinson’s. 

 

Left to celebrate her wonderful life and so many memories are her children Howie, Joanne, and Cathy (Darryl Stutt), her younger brother Jim Lang, and her grandchildren Mellissa, Markie and Clayton. She is predeceased by Aubrey, her husband of 52 years, her parents Walter and Helen (Guild) Lang, her brothers Douglas and Joe, and her sisters Keitha Boyer and Ruth Blanchard. 

 

Marie was the last of an era as she was the remaining spouse of the seven Glass siblings. She is lovingly remembered by nieces and nephews and their children on the Lang and Glass sides. 

 

Born in Beaverton on July 14, 1935, Marie moved with her family to Bracebridge and settled on Taylor Road in 1944 where her parents owned and operated Lang Fuels. When Marie and Aubrey married, she was a partner in his electrical business and then the family farm on Golden Beach Road. Whatever her address, it was always a welcoming home to family, friends, neighbours, and strangers. No one left hungry, and many returned for Marie’s famous baking, especially her homemade doughnuts.

 

Marie was curious about the world. She was gifted with languages, became fluent in Spanish in her senior years, travelled to the Amazon, and scaled a mountain in Ecuador. Above all, she held compassion and kindness deep in her heart. Her devotion to her family was unwavering. 

 

Although Marie’s home was a gathering space, she didn’t love publicity or attention, and per her request, there will be no formal celebration of life. She will be laid to rest beside her beloved Aubrey at a private gathering.

 

The family is grateful for the compassionate care Marie received from the staff at The Pines. They consistently exceed all expectations with their kindness and professionalism. 

 

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Parkinson Canada, tending a garden, baking for a friend, or travelling the world. Marie loved kindness at home and embraced the wonder of what was beyond the next horizon.
