Marion Kay Sept passed into the presence of her Lord on July 25, 2022 while in hospital, just days before it was expected she would be coming home.
She was born October 18, 1933 in Medicine Hat, Alberta to Otelda (Tillie) and William Logan, followed by her brother Gerald four years later. When Marion was 8 years old the family moved to North Vancouver and later to a farm in Haney, BC.
It was while in Haney that Marion’s parents began dropping the kids off at Sunday School and it was after attending a Sunday School program that Marion’s mother gave her heart to Jesus and later her father did as well.
Shortly after, the family sold their farm and moved to Three Hills, Alberta where Marion and Gerald were enrolled at Prairie Bible School and soon both Tillie and Bill were actively serving there.
Then in the 1950’s, while still in Three Hills, Marion met Oswald Sept and on June 12, 1954 they were married. The following year, on April 18th, their son Raymond was born and shortly after, the family moved to BC, where their daughter Charlene was born.
The young family made several moves before settling in Surrey and in 1969 moved again, this time to Burnaby where they lived for 24 years and attended Willingdon Church. Marion and Os would later move onto an acreage in Surrey to spend their “retirement” years.
Marion loved animals and especially dogs, there was usually one or more in the household, ranging from Dandie Dinmont Terriers, to Miniature Schnauzers and Dachshunds. Marion also had an adventurous spirit and loved travelling, which she did extensively with family or friends for many years. Her favourite place being London, England, where she would go time and again.
Marion was always drawn to children and taught Sunday School for many years. When her granddaughters arrived, she was ecstatic and loved spending time with them. She would plan adventures or fun projects to do together, things that hopefully would create memories.
Marion had a genuine interest in the people she met, these people enriched her life and she often shared her faith with them. These last few years, while not as mobile, she often just needed someone to talk to, so she would make and receive regular phone calls with those closest to her…we miss those calls.
At bedtime Marion found a sense of peace as she read Bible verses, many of which she highlighted to remind her of their significance. In recent months Os began playing audio Bible for them in the evenings, they looked forward to sharing this time together and it brought God’s words of comfort to them both.
Marion is dearly missed by her devoted husband Oswald, her children Raymond and Charlene (Ken), granddaughters Madeline (Richard), Joelle (Earthstar), great grandchildren Adrian, Gabriel and Julia and by her dear brother Gerald (Marilyn) and by many other family members and friends. Although our hearts are heavy, we are comforted knowing that she is no longer in discomfort, but is now enjoying her first days in Paradise, having long ago put her trust in Jesus.
