O’NEILL, Marion
(nee Primeau)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful mom Irma Marion O’Neill (nee Primeau) of Chatham-Kent, Ontario on Monday, April 22, 2024 at the age of 92.
Born in Pain Court, Ontario in 1931, Marion was the daughter of Cecile (Caron) and Alphy Primeau. She was the loving mother of seven children, Shellie (Aleks) Szymanski of Grand Bend, Barb (Michel) Desjardins of Trois Pistoles, QC, Patti (Stewart Lowry) Goldhawk of Ridgetown, Kathy (Harold) Parker of London, Maurien (Mo) (the late Paul Kereluik) O’Neill of Chatham, Deb Morrison (Chatham), and the late Michael Leroy O’Neill (2018). Dear and proud Mémé of 11 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
Survived by her brother Gerry Primeau (Helga), her sister Claudette Primeau and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by sisters Jean Howard and Agatha Drewery and brothers Alphy and Bob Primeau.
Marion was a long-time volunteer with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 642. She resided in Detroit, Michigan for many years and worked as a waitress on both sides of the border while raising her children. We will dearly miss our caring, strong and vibrant mother, Mémé, sister and aunt, and will forever cherish the many memories of her life well lived.
Our sincere thanks to the staff at Riverview Gardens Long-Term Care and the Chatham Retirement Resort for all of their care and compassion.
Cremation has taken place. A private family service and interment will be held at Maple City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Marion to a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be left at lifetransitions.ca.
