Vickers, Marion

February 12, 2024

Marion Vickers, beloved wife of Ramsay Vickers, passed away peacefully on Feb 12, 2024, at the age of 90. She was born on Feb 26th, 1933 as Aileen Mossey and had lived in Lethbridge her whole life.

Marion married Ramsay on Feb 25th, 1953. They had two children Jim (James) and Debra. While raising a family, Marion worked as a secretary for the President of Lethbridge Community College.

Throughout her life she was always active. She was a competitive swimmer and lifeguard as a teen, and as an adult, she enjoyed league bowling, hiking, fishing, curling, dancing, and golfing.

Her favorite place to hike and fish was Lineham Lake in Waterton. Getting there was challenging to say the least. She loved to fish the lake, and would often come home with her daily limit.

From 1968 on, she was an avid golfer. Marion loved to walk the 18 holes and could effortlessly hit her driver as straight as an arrow. She held a membership at Henderson Lake and played the ladies league at the club until her early 80’s.

After retirement, Marion and Ramsay spent many years wintering in Yuma Arizona. While there, they both found a love and talent for various styles of ballroom dancing. They would light up the room with their twirling bodies and fast feet.

Marion loved reading James Patterson, she enjoyed playing cards, suduku and candy crush. She watched Day’s Of Our Lives religiously. She enjoyed a glass of wine, loved her flowers and fresh produce from her garden. She loved going for walks, cherished tea with her friends, and phone calls and time with family.

Some would say that Marion had 9 lives. You would never know it, as she didn’t complain much. Her tenacity kept her going. She persevered always, and refused to let life’s circumstances, illnesses, or setbacks hold her back. Once Marion decided to keep going there was no stopping her.

As we say goodbye, we reflect on the incredible women she was. We know she will be dearly missed, but not forgotten. She is survived by, her husband Ramsey, sister Bernice and brother Jim, children Jim and Debra, grandchildren, great grandchildren and many other family and friends. At this time, there will be no public funeral service.
