Marie (Walton) Companion, 85, of Ipswich, Massachusetts passed away peacefully on June 24, 2021, surrounded by family.
Marie was born on February 5, 1936, and was raised in Salem, Massachusetts. She eventually moved to Hamilton, Massachusetts, where she spent many years bringing up her own children.
Whether making earrings, decorating boxes, or assembling a 5,000-piece puzzle, Marie loved arts, crafts, and any task that allowed her inherent creativity and perseverant nature to shine. She was happiest spending time with her family and friends at Cable Gardens, where she was always ready to engage in a spirited game of cards, Left Right Center, or Bingo, or to dance to Elvis Presley records. She loved jewelry, glitter, and rhinestones. An animal lover at heart, Marie treasured her beautiful Pomeranian Nikita, who she had for many years.
Marie was predeceased by her husband and best friend of 30 years, Frank Companion. She is survived by her children Peter Walton, of Danvers, Mass, Thomas Walton, of Hamilton, Mass, Linda (Walton) Healey of Plaistow, NH and Cynthia Walton of Atkinson, NH. She is also survived by six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
