WILMINGTON - Only 27 days after the passing of her one, true love, Marian Brenda Parsons Theriault joined her partner, Jack Theriault, to begin their next adventure together.

When recently asked by an old friend how she was faring, Marian said that every day at six o’clock, she would look towards the door expecting the arrival of Jack. On Friday evening, May 4, 2007 at precisely six p.m., her heart and breath ceased as her soul mate took her home. She, like he, peacefully left this world surrounded by her family.

Resulting from their 58 year union, Marian and Jack are survived by four children, Alison T. Becker of Charlotte, Pamela T. Hardee (and Jon) of Apex, Jay C. Theriault (and Ruth Hjelmgren) of St. Paul, Minnesota, and Jeffrey P. Theriault of Wilmington.

Mum Mum and Pa Pa will also be sorely missed by eight “perfect” grandchildren, Jocelin (and Paul), Jedidiah, Jeremy, Jennifer, Victoria (and Brian), Drew, Oskar and Joanna, and, by three “greatest” grandchildren, Dylan, Lillian and Lucas.

Marian’s body is being donated to science and she has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Lower Cape Fear Hospice of Wilmington and to the Fallen Heroes of America in Arizona.

On Line condolences may be made to

Wilmington Burial and Cremation Service, 1535 41st Street, Wilmington, North Carolina 28403, 910.791.9099.
