September 12, 1931- August 31, 2017
Marie Hume passed away peacefully at home on August 31st. Marie was looking forward to a 10 day holiday with family in Rexford, Montana. The night before, her suitcase was packed, ready to go. But, she didn’t make it through the night. Born Florence Marie McFarlane, Marie entered the world in Gainsborough, Saskatchewan on September 12, 1931.. The family moved to the Drumheller area when she was five years old, and later ended up in East Coulee. That’s where Marie met Calvin Hume. They fell in love, and were married in Drumheller in 1950. Cal and Marie were together for nearly 65 years, until his passing in 2015. Marie is survived by two sons, two daughters, and one sister. Pat and Diana Hume are in Creelman, Saskatchewan. Penny Jarina and her husband Joe live in Sparwood, B.C. Terry Hume and his wife Shelly are also in Sparwood, and the youngest, Lynn Green, lives with her husband Mike in Orangeville, Ontario. Marie’s sister, Maxine Popovich and her husband, Barney, live in Drumheller. She is also survived by nine grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren. Marie is predeceased by her parents, Cecil and Marie McFarlane, and her sister, Doryce Repas. A memorial service will be held at the Badlands Community Facility (BCF) on Tuesday, September 12th, at 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alberta Parkinson’s Society.
