Marcel Fillion

Peacefully, on January 24, 2024, Marcel Fillion, age 95 of St. Joseph, MB passed away at the Altona Hospital

Marcel was born on October 1, 1928 in St. Jean Baptiste, MB. He was the second eldest of 15 children born to Leona (Delorme) and Adonias Fillion. 

After his marriage to Adéline Gregoire, they began their lives as farmers in St. Joseph, MB.

Family was very important to Marcel. He was an honest, hardworking, bright and kind man. 

He was involved in numerous committees and organizations, one being a councillor in the Montcalm Municipality. Marcel was always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. 

His hearty laughter and the mischievous look in his eyes will be missed. 

He is survived by his children Denis (Réjane) Fillion, Gisèle (Donald) Sabourin, Janine (Gilbert) Durand, Michel (Rick) Fillion, and Adéline (Rick) Sellwood, as well as 11 direct grandchildren and many great grandchildren.  He was predeceased by his wife Adéline, two of their son’s Jacques and Gérard, as well as their son-in-law Neil, finally being reunited with them in God’s home.

We would like to thank Gardens on Tenth for the excellent care given in Dad‘s last years. We also thank the staff at the Altona Hospital.
