Marrian Caroline (Farough) Harper, born June 21, 1930 in Bowsman, Manitoba, passed away peacefully in her sleep at her residence, Dinsdale Personal Care Home, on Saturday, April 17, 2021. Mom had a long battle with dementia but continued through that time with a strong will and feisty spirit. Left to mourn her passing are her husband Allen Harper; daughters Donna (Grant) Farley of Brandon, Diane (Alvin) Kroeker of Birch River, and Lorna (Brad) Coe of Hartney; son Mervin (Millie) Farough of Minnedosa; and step-daughters Alma Jean (Nelson) McDonald of Carberry, Bonny (Kelvin) Hampson of Starbuck and Cindy McDougall of Calgary. Marrian was predeceased by her first husband Raymond Farough and several other family members. Marrian’s grandchildren, great grandchildren, several nieces, nephews and friends are left with many fond memories of many a meal at her table. Grandma’s buns and dill pickles were the best! Mom’s faith has been a great comfort to her, and assurance of a heavenly inheritance.

With my sympathy and love to Allan and all my dear cousins. A whole life time of memories has come flooding back to me. Especially the many happy weekends spent on the farm and Aunty Marrian bringing in milk pails of peas to shell and going out to get a fresh chicken for supper. She always had something on the top of the fridge to knit or crochet while the meal cooked and she waited for Uncle Raymond to come in from the field. Grateful for the times we spent with her and Allan in Brandon and always so welcoming. She is the last of that generation in our family. She indeed was a special woman and had endured much in her last years so grateful for the comfort and reassurance that she has gone on to better things. She indeed made the best of the time that God gave her and has left a Godly influence on the earth and many good memories. Love, Shirley
