Obituary of Marie Frances Trenholm

Dorchester, N.B.- It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Marie Trenholm on September 22, 2017, surrounded by love, at the Moncton City Hospital, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born in Sackville, she grew up in Midgic, eventually settling in Dorchester.

Marie was not only a devoted mother of eight children and an amazing Nanny, she was an active member of her community. She was a member of the Dorchester Legion Ladies Auxiliary, a volunteer at the Dorchester Food Bank and the Canadian Cancer Society; assisted elders in their homes for many years, worked for Elections Canada and volunteered for various events in the community. She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; as well as her many friends, whether it was going to Bingo or Friday night poker.

Marie will be dearly missed by her children, Craig, Timothy (Kim), Terry, Lynn, Shane (Sheena), Shelley (Alex), Adam (Tasha), and Melissa (James), as well as by her 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren; brothers, Reginald and Laurie Sears; sisters, Edith Blacklock and Winona Hachey.

Marie was predeceased by her parents, Lorne and Bessie (Holmes) Sears; sisters, Nora Phinney and Shirley Sears, as well as by her brothers, Cedric and Gerald Sears.
