It is with deep sadness that the family announce the passing of Marilyn in hospice house on December 24, 2014 at the age of 78 years.
Marilyn who made each day seem like Christmas. Former Miss Maple-Leaf Canada of 1958 lost her battle with cancer. She is survived by her loving husband of 40 years Larry; two brothers Ted and Bruce; two children Ronlynne and Roark; four grandchildren Sophie, Olivia, Matt and Ashleigh. The family would like to pass along special thanks to the many friends in Vernon for their prayers and well wishes and support during this time of year. Special thanks to Dr. Ken Perrier, the staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and North Okanagan Hospice Society for the exceptional care extended to Marilyn. Through this illness we have found that the residents of Vernon are warm hearted people, we are truly blessed to live here.
