Obituary for Marian Grace Eno (Pooler)

It is with immense sadness that our family announces the passing of our mother, Marian Grace Eno (nee Pooler) at Ottawa Civic Hospital on Sunday May 23, 2021. Marian follows her husband Michael who passed away in January and we know they loved each other so much that they will be reunited once again forever. Marian raised her family to know how selfless, intelligent, wise and supportive a Mother can be. Marian is survived by her beloved sister, Linda Grace (nee Sloman), brother in law Rev. Barney Grace and sister in law Catherine MacMaster; and predeceased by her dearly remembered brothers Ralph, Ken, younger brother Don and her sister Lorna. She will always be Mom to Susan, Laurie, Michael, James and Mary-Jane; Grandmother to Alexandra, Leanna, Jacqueline, Jennifer, Rebecca, Dylan and Anna; Great Grandmother to Santino; and Aunt Marian to several nieces and nephews.
Marian was raised in Highland Creek, seamstress for Cole of California, later married and worked for GM in Oshawa, blazing a trail for working women in the 60s and 70s, even chosen to drive the 8 millionth car off the GM line. She raised her family and retired with her husband of over 66 years in Round Lake. Mom enjoyed traveling, reading extensively, finishing crossword puzzles in pen and completing complex jigsaw puzzles as well as sewing, baking and taking concern in her gardens. She was marvelously intelligent in many subjects, yet was extremely modest. Marian was surrounded by love to the end and she will be remembered in our hearts forever.
A Celebration of Life for Marian will be held together with her husband Michael at a future date following a lifting of restrictions due to the pandemic. Marian’s ashes will be interred along with Michael’s in St. Mathew’s Cemetery, Madawaska. In lieu of flowers, donations might be considered on Marian’s behalf, to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Condolences, tributes and donations can be made online at

When I was a little girl, Aunt Marian was our fun Auntie who made the best lemon pies, sewed outfits for our Barbie dolls, gave us grownup glasses of pop and made no-end of koolaid freezies. She was an integral part of the summer road trips to Killaloe, Madawaska, Pembroke and the yearly pilgrimages to St. Ann's at Cormac. With as many kids as could fit into a car, often it was her or Uncle Mick who brought us for a double-header ice cream cone before heading back to the lake. She  planned the best beach and boat picnics and it seemed downright magical that she always appeared to be the sole source of an endless supply of marshmallows at the bonfires. She made time to listen to the childhood ramblings of her nieces and nephews and somehow remained fully-engaged for every word. We liked being around her.
        As I grew older, I came to realize that my Auntie 'Em' was a woman of great depth, intelligence and experience. Life never failed to interest her. Entirely self-possessed, she always managed to keep her own council despite all of the plans, ongoing projects and general shenanigans that would inevitably take flight within this loving, clanny family of ours. I think that she took it all in stride because Marian, like Uncle Mickey, showed a rare generosity of spirit to most all that she met... just ask anyone who knocked at their door.
        Her family was the crystal clear focus of her life and we have often been told by them that she was their rock - a deeply grounding force. Auntie Em was warmth and compassion. She was fun and laughter. She was love and kindness.
        With the loss of your Dad still so fresh, and now your Mom, my deepest condolences go out to you Susan, Laurie, Mary Jane, Micheal and James and to all of your families. Your Mother really was a most extraordinary woman and she was a good person. I loved her very much and will miss her deeply...  especially her laugh and her hugs and her lemon pie. I am grateful for all the memories. Thank you for sharing her with all of us. Sans souci...

Dear Jamie, Michael and Family,
I was saddened to have recently learned of the loss of your Dad and now I have just found out that your Mom also has passed away. I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to all of you. I have so many wonderful memories of the times I spent with you and your parents. Your parents always made me feel so welcome at their home on Ridgeway as well as at the cottage on Round Lake. Your parents were very special people and their passing will leave a huge hole in your lives. My thoughts are with you as you go through this difficult time.
With all my Heart,
Scott Kimmerly

Mom, I love you so much. A million times I could have said those words but you deserved to hear them a million more. I'll miss your smiles and hugs and scent; your advice to not worry about things one can't control; reading the books you recommended; and your calming voice. I'll miss calling you and just chatting about anything. You were wonderful. You are irreplaceable. A big hole has been left in our lives where you and Dad stood but we can fill it with the love you taught us to have for each other. I read the messages of sympathy written for you and feel pride because you positively affected so many friends and family. I know that I can overcome life's obstacles because you survived troubles without complaint and equipped me with that strength. You gave me the adventure of travel, acceptance of culture and a learning curiosity. I appreciate that you gave up part of yourself to raise our family and leave us with happy, cherished memories. I'll live my life supported by your enduring love, soft teaching and personal examples to try and make you proud of me. Be at peace and give my love to Dad. I love you Mom.

Marian, Thanks for many happy memories, for being a great neighbor on Ridgeway, for being a Champion at the CHOO CHILI COOKOUTS, for being a generous and welcoming hostess whenever we visited you at your home on Round Lake, and most of all for being a true friend to Belle and I for some 35 + years.

Dear Susan and family. It was hard to believe when you sent me the message of your Mom’s passing. I have very fond memories of seeing her at your place and up north. Always a smile on her face. Such a kind and giving woman. The relationship with your Dad was truly heart warming to witness. He would have greeted her with that twinkle in his eye. My thoughts and prayers are with you. You will not be over the loss of your dad and now your mom. Hold those memories close and keep her in same pocket with your dad. They were a force together and they loved their family. Sincerely Linda Schwartz
