Marion Fountain

February 7, 1947 — May 14, 2024

Marion Fountain (nee Ross) passed away at Kilean Lodge, Grimsby on May 14, 2024 aged 77. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of almost 55 years, Raymond Fountain, daughter Michelle Weatherdon (Derek) and grandchildren Andy and Maggie.


Marion is predeceased by father Ronald Leon Ross, mother Margaret Norma Ross (nee Foran), sisters Jacqueline McPherson and Barbara Pfannes, and favourite niece Marnie Fleming. She is survived by sisters Colleen McGill (Doug), Vivian Fleming, brother Ronald Ross (Sharon) and several nieces and nephews.


Family was so very important to Marion. Beyond blood relatives Marion cared for so many children through babysitting, volunteering at St. Elizabeth School in Wallaceburg, and the Pines in Chatham. Hundreds of children were graced by her loving kindness, and will always be remembered as “her kids”. Marion always said she wanted a dozen children, so raising her grandson Andy was a special gift that she cherished. She was given the “Living Faith Award” by the St. Clair District School Board the first year it was presented, for her volunteer work at the school. Marion loved scrapbooking, playing bingo and cards, and RVing with Ray across the USA, Mexico and Canada.


Marion will be interred in West Lorne at St. Mary’s Cemetery with a small service at a time to be determined. Donations to the Grimsby Benevolent Fund, where Marion most recently volunteered can be made at
