The passing of Marian Constance Nevett occurred on Mon., Dec. 1, 2014 at the Lucky Lake Health Centre at the age of 97 years.
Marian Constance (Bath) Nevett was born in Toronto, Ontario on Nov. 18, 1917 to Charles Whitney Bath and Constance Linda (Goddard) Bath. The family later moved to Weston, Ontario where her father was employed as a payroll clerk. The economic depression brought unemployment and instead of accepting relief, her parents sold their house and bought a farm at Caledon, Ontario across the road from the Nevett farm. Marian enjoyed and excelled in school, but in Grade 10 had to drop out for health reasons.
Marian married Dennis Nevett on Sept. 1, 1939 in the Caledon United Church. Dennis worked for a short time as a handyman near Caledon and then they rented a farm near Camilla, Ontario. In 1943, they bought a farm in the Cardwell District near Orangeville, Ontario. Dennis and Marian farmed until retirement in 1985, then sold the farm and rented a condo in Orangeville temporarily until they moved to Maple Creek 11 years later.
Dennis died on Dec. 18, 2000 and Marian continued to live in Maple Creek until her move to the Beechy Community Care Home in 2009. It was the perfect place for her and she was very happy there. Failing health necessitated Marian’s move to the Lucky Lake Health Centre last summer, where she died on Dec. 1, 2014.
Marian was predeceased by her husband Dennis, daughter-in-law Elizabeth, her brothers Cooper, James, and George, and her sister Marjorie Meyer.
Marian is survived by her five children: Dennis (June), David, James (Bonny), Donald (Connie) and Gwendolyn (Scott Montgomery); eight grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, her brother Richard (Kathleen) Bath, sister-in-law Kathleen Bath, and many nieces and nephews.
We were all blessed to have Marian in our lives and she will be greatly missed.
The funeral service was held on Mon., Dec. 8, 2014 at St. Michael & All Angels Anglican Church in Beechy, Sask with Rev. David Nevett officiating. Interment took place in the Maple Creek cemetery. Arrangements were in care of the Outlook Funeral Chapel.
