Today we celebrate a life well lived by Mary-Ann Fillion, who tranquilly passed on, surrounded by those who love her most dearly, during the late afternoon of Thursday, April 23, 2015, at the age of 80. There are so many things that could be said about Mary-Ann, for she was such a remarkable person her entire life. She was gifted in many ways, one of which was her musical talent. Her love of music showed in everything she did, and it certainly moved many people. There wasn’t a time that her compassionate, generous personality wasn’t shining and she was always so willing to make sacrifices for others. She certainly didn’t always have it easy, and it is a shame, although it is important that we remember how fulfilling her life has been, how much love she has shown this world, and just how incredibly she has made a difference in the lives of so many. She will be missed dearly, and we will surely pass on her legacy for generations to come. Mary-Ann was preceded in departure by her devoted husband Rene Fillion who passed away on November 11, 1984. She is the loving mother of Edward Fillion, Raymond Fillion, Joseph Fillion, Estelle Smith, Sharon Fillion, Rosalind Fillion, caring sister of Ceceile Arsenault, and the proud grandmother of Jennifer Lessard, Jeremy Fillion, Brookelyn Fillion, Rene Fillion, Samantha Trish-Harms, Anthony Fillion, Jerry Fillion, Christal Fillion, Valerie Fillion, Sharon Smith, Daron Smith, Ronald Albert, Christopher Fillion, and Jessica Lee Fillion. Further survived by many great grandchildren, aunts, uncles, relitives, friends, and many more to mention. Family and friends will be received at SMITH FUNERAL HOME, 1576 London Line, Sarnia, on Sunday, April 26, 2015, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and Monday, April 27, 2015, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Thomas D’Aquin Parish, 895 Champlain Rd, Sarnia, on Monday, April 27, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. Interment to follow in Resurrection Cemetery.
