Lawrence MarinaLAWRENCE, Marina   -  It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of a loving wife, mother, daughter, and friend.

On Saturday, January 23, 2021, surrounded by her family, Marina Lawrence peacefully passed away at her home, at the age of 65.

Dear wife of Dave Darwent. Proud mother of Emily (Marsden) and Katherine (Dillon) and stepmother of Craig, Courtney (Nick), Tristan, and Christopher.

Cherished daughter of Blazenka Tennier (Keith). Best friend since childhood to Janice DiMillo (Ed).

Marina was preceded in death by her father Phillip and brothers Darko (Vickie) and Kresimir. Marina valued family, friendship, and fun.

The door of Marina's home was eternally open, whether it be to long-term guests or runaways – but her favourite way to host was through dinner parties: wine and laughter overflowed, and she cooked enough to feed an army.

In keeping with Marina's wishes, cremation has taken place and a private Memorial Service will be held. Arrangements with Denning's of Strathroy. Registration is required as we have limited capacity at the funeral home due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to Metavivor ( in Marina's memory.
