March 20, 1936 - February 3, 2018
Mrs. Abbadie was born on March 20th, 1936 and passed away in Kamloops on February 3rd, 2018.
Marianne passed away in Royal Inland Hospital after a possible heart attack that afternoon at home.
She had knee replacement surgery weeks previously.
Marianne always had a smile on her face and loved people, but her husband of 53 years Thomas and son Michael were the most important.
Mom worked hard all her life and was a perfectionist. She loved gardening and having a nice house.
She also worked at the Ponderosa Lodge for 25 years.
Mom and dad were proud of their Basque and French language and culture, and Marianne was proud to be a Canadian, her adopted country since the late 1960's.
Marianne also leaves to cherish her memory her sister Louise, brother Andre and niece Marylizze in France.
Mom and dad were able to take many trips and vacations in the U.S.A., but were especially happy to travel back to France on at least six occasions.
The family would like to express their appreciation to their dear friends: the Dominic Mihura family from Merritt, the Hartwig family of Kamloops, their neighbours, Maria Salviati and Val and Les Davidson,
also Carol and Bryan and the Don Depuis family for everything they did to help.
The Reverend Father Derrick Cameron will celebrate the Funeral Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral on Friday, February 9th at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Hillside Cemetery.
