Anna Marie Doupe-Pepin January 30, 1932-April 30, 2007 It is with great sadness our family announces the peaceful passing of Anna Marie Pepin at the age of 75 at Niagara General Hospital with her family by her side after a long battle with cancer. Daughter of the late Mary Agnes Cameron Doupe and Sidney Alton Doupe, beloved wife of the late Emin Joseph Pepin, loving mother of Marianne Pepin, Tony Kelly (Dee), Diane Pepin, and Jason Pepin. Cherished Grandmother of Krystina, Chelsea, Anthony, Brittany, Tasha, and RJ. Marie was employed for 35 years by the Kirkland Lake Separate School Board as an elementary school teacher. She was a lifelong member of the Community of Christ Church and served in many capacities including many years with the Native Camp, Youth Camps and Family Reunions where she spent her summers volunteering as camp cook. After her retirement she moved to Niagara Falls where Marie Pepin’s name became synonymous in Canada with service to the homeless and dispossessed. She was honoured over the years for her selfless service to others that came from her heart. In 1996 she was honoured with the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award, in March 1998 for Native American Bridge Building from the Native American Ministries, Community of Christ Church, and she was awarded The Eagle Feather by the First Nations of Canada for her work with native Children. In April 2001 she was made A Paul Harris Fellow of the Foundation of the Rotary International, in May 2000 she received a Certificate of Recognition from the Mayor of Niagara Falls for dedication to residents of the city, in 2000 she received The Good Canadian Citizens Award from the Mayor of Niagara Falls and in the same year St. Paul High School conferred on her The Jubilee Award, given only once every 25 years and at the same time created a Marie Pepin Award to be given annually to a faculty member who lives the Gospel of St. Matthew. Marie has volunteered all of her life to assist those less fortunate and in more recent years worked tirelessly with and for Niagara’s homeless with Out of the Cold. Marie dedicated her life to helping people. All will remember Marie for her selflessness, her generosity and her genuine love for the all people and her determination to help others. Marie will also be remembered for her unconditional love and open arms. Rest well good and faithful servant, you will be missed. In memory of Marie, donations to the Out of the Cold Program or the Cancer Society would be appreciated by her family. On-line condolences at www.pattersonfuneralhome.com.
