Surrounded by her loving and supportive family, Marianne passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 in Palliative Care at Lakeridge Health in Oshawa.

Sister-in-law of Ernest Sellick of Prince Edward Island. Lovingly remembered by her nieces, nephews and their families.

Marianne was a dedicated successful business woman in Oshawa and the co-founder of Classic Flowers established in 1977 and retired in 1997. She was an energetic member of the community, devoting her time and many talents to the Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery, Oshawa Chamber of Commerce, and Grandview Children’s Centre.

Deepest sympathy to the family. Shocked and saddened to learn today of Marianne’s death. She and Lorne were twice our neighbours when living in Oshawa. A wonderful, loving and talented lady.
