MOIST, Marion - Obit Photo.jpg



It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, sister and grandmother, Marion Moist, on April 29, 2023. Marion passed peacefully with her family at her side after a four-and-one-half year battle with ovarian cancer.


Marion was born in Bellshill, Scotland, on September 16, 1954. She moved to Canada in 1975 and enjoyed a 38-year career at Manitoba Health.


Marion was predeceased by her mother, Isobel Dunsmore, in 1994; twin brother Jack, in 2005; parents-in-law, Lloyd and Mae Moist, in 2012.


She is survived by her loving husband of 44 years, Paul Moist; daughter Kelly; twin grandsons, Aiden and Lucas; son Scott (Jacqui); brother Craig (Elaine), of Lanark, Scotland; and her many in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends.


Marion lived life to the fullest. She was a loving wife and mother. She was active in the community, in her union and in numerous volunteer roles. She was full of compassion and helped many friends through personal and life challenges. She loved to travel with her close friends, the “Golden Girls”. She was constantly in motion and full of smiles. She loved all her dogs that the family cherished over the past 40 years. For Marion, life was about the journey. It was about supporting and loving her family, and her many close friends. She touched all who met her. She leaves a legacy of living life well, always placing the needs of others ahead of her own. May she rest peacefully, reunited with all her loved ones who predeceased her.


We offer heartfelt thanks to the entire team at Cancer Care Manitoba, and the Downtown West Homecare Nursing group, for both their professional service and compassion.


A celebration of life will be held at 2:00pm on Thursday, May 11 at the Unitarian Church, 603 Wellington Crescent. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations in Marion’s memory may be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or the Winnipeg Humane Society.
