DICK, Marion Ann
(nee Armstrong)
February 23, 1950 – Perth, Ontario
December 31, 2021 – Calgary, Alberta

With great sadness, the family announces that on December 31, 2021 Marion passed away peacefully at the age of 71. Marion was the sixth and youngest child born to Yorke and Edna Armstrong near Perth, ON. At the age of three, her family moved to Calgary where Marion started school and grew her love of education. She earned her science and education degrees at both the U of C and U of A and taught until her retirement. Marion enjoyed many activities in her younger years including equestrian dressage at Spruce Meadows. She met the love of her life, Ron Dick and they married on August 21, 1995. They loved to travel together, go to live Theatre shows, play golf and care for their beloved dogs. More recently, they traveled yearly to their second home in Chandler, AZ. They joined a local Bocce club there and looked forward to playing with friends weekly. Marion was an avid Red Hat Society member in Calgary and Phoenix and she enjoyed the many social events. Marion had a great sense of humor, bright outlook on life, and laughed easily and often. Marion is survived by her adoring husband Ron Dick; his children Lisa Welsh, Mike (Amanda) Dick; grandchildren (Daniel, Nicholas, Kaitlyn and Braydon); and great-grandchildren (Hayden, Mason, Maria, Matteo); her brothers Arthur (Linde) Armstrong, and Gordon Armstrong; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared and viewed at If friends so desire, memorial tributes can be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society and the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Special thank you to all staff at both the South Health Campus and the Rockyview hospital for their compassionate care.
