Priscilla Marr of Stouffville, Ontario passed away on April 15th. Born May 4th, 1960 in Nova Scotia, Priscilla was the loving wife of Neil Marr, her husband of 38 years. Mother to Julia (Dustin) and Gillian. Nana to Luther, Aidan, Lynley, Keaton, Perry, Macaulay and Neil. Sister to Peggy (Brian), John (Jocelyn), and Chris (Karen). Sister-in-law to Eunice (Laine), Colin (Linda). Pre-deceased by her parents Carl and Beatrice DeLong. Propelled by her faith in God, Priscilla was well respected at home and abroad as she enjoyed a rewarding career in charities. Latterly, her unrelenting positivity proved to be a huge asset at YRDSB, where she was a much loved and valued member of the IT customer service department. A woman of faith, Priscilla was active in the Church, serving in many areas over the years, including as a Sunday school superintendent. Well respected in the world of theatre, she was also a talented and award-winning costume designer and an outstanding producer. A true optimist and armed with tremendous wisdom, Priscilla could turn her hand to any task and win anyone over with that amazing smile. Despite a devastating diagnosis, she fought with tremendous courage, only succumbing when every medical option had been exhausted.
The family would like to thank the excellent care received from a host of medical professionals, including Dr Andrew Patterson, Nurse Maria Musselman, Nurse Glynis Wrathall, Dr. Cynthia Luk, Dr. Gonzalo Sapisochin, Dr. Gina Yip, Dr. Paul Karanicolas, Dr. Simon Yang, Dr. Don Mutasingwa, Dr. Danielle Mackenzie, Dr. Len Nelson. The family would also like to express gratitude for all the support received from friends, neighbours and colleagues.
Due to current restrictions, there will be a private service for immediate family only. A memorial event will take place at a later date.
