January 26, 2024

After a brief illness our beloved wife and Mother passed peacefully at home leaving behind her husband of 56 years Dr. John deMercado; her daughters Mary Dineen McIntyre (Bruce), Janice Dineen Bugby (Rick), Anne deMercado Dorion (Dale, deceased); Grandchildren Anne Van Dusen (Jason), Peter McIntyre (Krista), Patrick Bugby, Matthew Bugby, her eight precious great-grandchildren of whom she was so proud, as well as her devoted sister Jacqueline Shulman. Predeceased by her first husband Gerald Dineen, her daughter Susan Dineen and sister Denise Mullins. We have been blessed to have had the most devoted and amazing Mother. Mariette was always proud of her association with the Hotel Dieu Hospital in Kingston where she graduated from nursing in 1954 and throughout her life worked in various nursing capacities. She spent every summer of her life at her “happy place”, Christie Lake. She will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews, and lifelong friends. Our deepest gratitude extended to Pauline Ringrose, Linda Keith and Olha Volochai for the care and loving friendship they provided Mariette during this past year. Friends may pay respects to the family at The Whelan Funeral Home on Monday, February 5 from 4 to 7 p.m. A Mass of Christian Funeral will be held on Tuesday, February 6, 2024 at Saint Patrick’s Basilica (Kent and Nepean) at 10:30 a.m. A time of refreshment and fellowship will follow in the Parish Scavi. Arrangements entrusted to The Whelan Funeral Home. Tel. (613) 233-1488.
