Marion Buik (née Ogilvy) 1939 – 2017

Class of 1956

Following in the footsteps of her old sister, Marion joined the High School of Dundee in 1944 where she made many lifelong friends. Whilst at the School, she actively participated in a range
of activities and always spoke very fondly of her classes with her drama teacher Miss Wright.

With her compassionate and caring nature, Marion was well suited to a career in nursing and completed her training at the Dundee Royal Infirmary. She later relocated to Carnoustie along with her husband, where they became parents to a daughter and two sons. Here she formed many strong friendships and always ensured to involve herself in the life of the town.

After her children had gotten a little older, Marion returned to nursing where she was a popular, friendly and well-valued member of staff who enjoyed a variety of work in theatre, casualty and the general wards.

Enduring years of surgery and discomfort from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Marion was never heard to complain. With a bright smile and a good word, she remained stoical and was always ready to lend a hand to others.

Having inspected her beloved garden, Marion passed away peacefully, but suddenly, whilst relaxing in her sunroom on a sunny September afternoon.

Marion is survived by her dearly loved husband Fred, her children Suzanne, David and Charles, granddaughter Lauren and sister Ismay. She is, and will continue to be, very much missed by all who knew her.
