April 7, 1925 – Aug. 6, 2017
It is with sadness and gratefulness that we announce the passing of Ines Marcon on Aug.6, surrounded by the love of her two sons and her Acacia Community. She is survived by her sons Evo and Alex (Marlene) and grandchildren Heidi and Sandro. She immigrated from Cosa, Italy with her husband Renato in 1949 and settled in Trail , where she raised her children in the midst of family, friends and Italian traditions. She spent many enjoyable hours working at Cominco until her retirement in 1990. In 2009 she moved to Victoria and later to Shawnigan Lake. She will be remembered for her fine meals; antipasto; her rose and vegetable garden and most of all, her love for her family. Many thanks to the caring and dedicated nurses and staff at the Acacia TyMawr at Shawnigan Lake where for the past six years they showered mom with love and affection and always found ways to make Nonna smile. A service was held at the Mountain View mausoleum in Trail, after which she was entombed next to her beloved husband Renato who predeceased her in 1968.
