WILDSMITH, Marian - Peacefully with her family by her side at Miramichi Lodge on Jan 05, 2020 in her 86th year. Marian Wildsmith nee Watling of Pembroke, beloved wife of the late Donald Paul Wildsmith, both originally from Yorkshire, England. Loving mother of Deborah Marie Wildsmith-Chappell and her husband Simon, David Paul, Bridgette Mary and Jacqueline Michelle Denis and her husband Robert. Sadly missed by grandchildren Jasmine Dahlke-Wildsmith, Brian James Vicente Wildsmith, Nathaniel David Paul and Rebecca Mari Anne Wildsmith-Chappell, and their loving pets Boo Boo, Daisy, Coya, Tigger and Bootsy. Beloved daughter of the late James Henry Watling and Lily Watling nee Turner. Loving sister of Maureen, Betty, Freda, Henry, Doreen, and the late Jimmy, Beattie, Millie, Joan & Raymond. Marian was an amazing woman, who had the gift of projecting all of her loving energies into everything she touched ~ especially her loving husband Don, her children and grandchildren, and her dear friends. She also directed her inspirations into everything she created, painted and sprung into life. Her vibrant imagination and outstanding creativity led her to so many passions. This resulted in the opening of her own craft boutique "WILDCRAFTS" in the Pembroke Mews, where she displayed her amazing wall hangings, designer clothing, and paintings. It was there that she met many local artists and customers, many of whom became such dear friends. Her whole life was dedicated to brightening the day for all to appreciate, and help alleviate their pain. She has touched the souls of so many, and will continue to do so up above... as an ~Angel~

I was sad to hear the passing for your mother. She was the last of the 6 friends that had an amazing bond that had lasted for years. My heart is with all her children and grandchildren. I wish i could be there in person to pay my respects but it wasnt possible. I adored your mom and dad and feel that i was bless to say they were friends.

Marian was a ...non stop creating and thinking woman. I know all her family will miss her greatly, but have wonderful memories. Marion and Don were soul mates, and raised lovely children.
