She is survived by her loving daughter, Jaime (Greg) Bratland and her grandchildren Jack and Georgia, her sister Linda Scoular (Peter) and her niece Erin (Greg) and a fondly remembered brother-in-law, Dan Frayne. Her husband, Tom Amatto predeceased her in 2020.
She will be sorely missed by her extended family at Green Horizons, especially her “adopted” Mexican family and many more. Marianne made friends wherever she went with her wicked sense of humour and sharp tongue; many remained good and loyal friends for life.
When she discovered her illness, she said “It never occurred to me that one day I’d wake up sick and never get better.”
Her adamant wish was that any donations made in her name go strictly to the Salvation Army.
Marianne, we will miss you and always love you and many of us remember all the laughs we had together. Cremation has taken place.
Classy, sassy and a little smart assy.
