Obituary for Marina Healey

Marina  Healey
Healey, Marina C.
Marina passed away peacefully in hospital, Smiths Falls, on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at the age of 83. Beloved wife of the late Harold E. Healey, much loved mother of Larry Healey (Michele Despreaux) and Lee-Anne Scott (Jeremy). Sadly missed by grandchildren Benjamin and Nicholas Healey and her best friend, Doodle. Predeceased by her parents, Robert and Margaret Atchison, and her brother Gordon Atchison. Fondly remembered by her extended family and many friends.
Mrs. Healey to some, Marina to many and Minnie to most, Mom left behind a laugh and a smile wherever she went. She would talk to anyone about anything and had a joke or story for all who would listen. In the driver’s seat with her nose to the windshield, she happily toured her regular route: Ottawa for ham, Manotick for tomatoes, Merrickville for treasures, Balderson for curd, Almonte for toys, Pakenham for bread, Brockville for buttercream, Westport for pajamas and Smiths Falls for Dairy Queen. Her Christmas came in June when strawberries were ripe. A VIP at Tincap, she never missed a season and never lost a berry off the basket on the car ride home. Jam and jelly; cakes, cookies and pie were her specialty and to her it all tasted better when she had a friend to feed. When she wasn’t looking for her keys, bank card, purse or glasses she was merrily tending to her yard. She made it into a wonderland of plants and flowers, toys in trees and solar lights on every surface. If it sang, danced or lit up she bought it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Above all else she loved her family, her friends and at the top of her list sat her constant companion and confidant, Doodle.
With sincere appreciation and admiration, we thank the staff and residents of Van Horne Manor for their care and friendship. To the nurses, doctors and support staff at the Smiths Falls Hospital – the loving care you provided Mom in her final days was second to none and will never be forgotten.
Friends may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 112 Beckwith St. N., Smiths Falls, Thursday, May 30, 2019 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Francis de Sales Church, Smiths Falls, Friday, May 31, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Interment, St. Francis de Sales Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers and donations, please take a friend to Dairy Queen, buy them an ice cream cone and tell them a joke.
