CASSON, Marion

Marion Casson, originally of Peterborough, was part of Prince Edward County’s arts and culture scene for over fifty years. She served as curator of what is now the Ameliasburgh Heritage Village for 17 years and was an award winning artist involved in many local associations and galleries. Her creativity was boundless and included weaving, felting and other fibre arts, pottery, painting—and most recently writing and photography. Marion loved to travel and her friendships spanned the world and lasted a lifetime. She was loved immensely by her family. She is predeceased by her parents, Alf and Lily, and her brother, Herb. She is survived by her husband Richard, her brother Jim, her children Garrick (Marlene), Nell (Jamie), and Graeme (Heather), and grandchildren Amelia, Corbin and Gavin. She will be missed by the County’s artists, creators, and appreciators of all things dynamic and aesthetic. A celebration of Marion’s life will be held April 8 at the Sugarbush Vineyard 1-4pm. . In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Prince Edward County Arts Council, the Belleville Art Association or the Quinte Arts Council.  The best way to remember Marion is to make good art and to share it.
