  1. My sincere condolences to the family. Mrs. Dollard was at Zellers when I first started working there. I remember her as being a person to whom you could talk to about your concerns.

  3. Camden Park Tower friends of Marie wish to express their sincere condolences to her family. Marie was a wonderful friend and neighbor to many of us at 2nd floor Camden. She was a great participant at many of our music evenings. She loved the evenings when we did quizzes on Canadian events. Her presence will be missed but her memory will stay with us.Rest in peace dear friend

  4. I had the utmost pleasure of working with Marie when I was the manager of Zellers Store 158.
    Boy, she knew her stuff and made my task so much easier. We never shared in any conflict, because she was right. I wanted so badly to see her and attended a 158 staff reunion a few years ago but unfortunately Marie did not attend. Thank you Marie, I’ve remembered you all these years since I believe 1978 and will always have fond memories of our time together. Rest in Peace, you earned it.
    Fred Bell formerly 158 Moncton Manager and District Manager, District 12
