Obituary of Marsha Jacqueline Prior

A Beloved Mother and Grandmother

You may not be with us anymore, but our love for you will never die. We miss you Mom.

You will always be missed and never forgotten.

Marsha Jacqueline Prior, 67, of Vegreville, Alberta, formerly of Toronto, Ont., died peacefully in her sleep on April 27, 2019, at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Vegreville. Born December 15, 1951, in Toronto, Ont., she is predeceased by her father and sister, Sylvia from Ontario. Her surviving family include her mother Barbara J. Chapman and her three loving children, Melissa (Darrell) J. Korop, Allan D. Guinup and Derek (Kristin) L. Guinup; and granddaughters Trinity, Freya, Klowey; grandson Rylin; and many other family members around Alberta and  Ontario.

Marsha was a kind hearted soul, whom loved her family and close friends.  She took many trips, one which lead her to Jasper even if the train ride took 12 hours to wait for. Just so she could enjoy the scenery of the breath taking mountains and fresh air.  She would often enjoy family time even if it was hours away. Seeing her children become and what precious gifts they have brought into this world was the best joy she could have hoped for.

Private services and burial will be held at later date. The family wishes to thank those who have extended emotional support for Marsha during her final months, weeks, and days.

There are Angels God puts on this Earth
Who care for us and guide us.
You can feel their love and gentleness 
as they walk through life beside us.

They do great things for us every day
they whisper in our ears, 
they even hold us in their hearts 
when we are filled with all our fears.

They are always there to give a hug
and try to make us smile.
They treat us with respect and love, 
they treat us like their child.

God blessed me with an Angel, 
I’m proud to call my own.
She’s been with me throughout my 
life, been with me as I’ve grown.

She’s guided me the best she can, 
she’s taught me like no other, 
and I’m thankful I’m the lucky one 
who get’s to call her... MOTHER
