Marion Rose Maglio (Vecchio)

October 22, 1918 - May 21, 2014


Marion passed away peacefully at Mountain Lake Seniors' Community  on Wednesday, May 21st after a lengthy illness. She was born in Fernie, B.C. on October 22, 1918 to Rosina and John Vecchio. In 1937 she moved to Nelson with her family. She married Joseph Maglio on October 5, 1938 and together they raised three boys and operated the Hillside Dairy until it closed in the early 60's. Her devotion to family was exemplary. She was a long-standing member of the Catholic Women's League and a charter member of the Mt. St. Francis Ladies' Auxiliary and the Mother Teresa Circle.  She was a talented woman who busied herself in many crafts and activities but her favorites were baking, cooking, crocheting, knitting and sewing. She sold many of her creations at Christmas Craft Fairs. In her spare time, she volunteered  at various charities including the I.O.D.E. Thrift Shop.


Marion is survived by her sons Mel (Judy) and Bob, grandsons, Darin (Meg),  Stephen (Rachelle) and Graham (Tara) as well as four great grandsons, Nicholas, Seth, Quinn and Evan. She is also survived by her sisters, Sue Gelinas and Eleonor (Jack) Chambers and brother Jim (Madge) Vecchio along with numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Joseph in 1996 and son Michael in 2001 as well as her brothers Bat and Joe Vecchio.


Our family would like to thank Dr. Trevor Janz and all the staff at Mountain Lake Seniors' Community especially those in the Alpine and Evergreen Cottages for the wonderful care she received during her stay.
