Sister-in-law Anne predeceased. Will always be remembered by many nieces, nephews and friends. Marilyn had a big heart, she became like a mom to the people in her building. The coffee gang at the Espresso Bar will greatly miss her morning visits. She was always helping, or driving someone to an appointment, the grocery store, or whereever they needed to go. She enjoyed euchre and always had a car full of passengers when going to a euchre party. Marilyn was a Christian, and an active member in her church. She loved sharing Jesus with everyone. Marilyn’s confidence in her faith, gave her peace knowing she would be reunited with her parents and son Brian again. We will miss you. Family and friends gathered at Spring Bay Pentecostal Church from 7 pm to 9 pm on Sunday, April 5, 2015. Funeral Service was held at 11 am on Monday, April 6, 2015 at Spring Bay Pentecostal Church with Rev. Dan Thompson officiating. Cremation with burial of ashes in Burpee-Mills Cemetery.
