With sadness we announce the passing of Marilynn Blackmore in Vernon BC on August 19, 2021 at the age of 71. Marilynn is survived by her sons, Shane (Krista) of Beaverlodge, Alberta and Shawn (Renee) of Vernon, BC; Grandchildren Ethan, Andrew and Dylan. She was predeceased by Parents John and Marjorie (Smith) Martin; Brother Ken and Sister Donna.
Marilynn was born in Shilo, Manitoba on November 5, 1949 and moved to Vernon at the age of seven. She lived in Alberta briefly then returned to live in Vernon the rest of her life, working initially for Vernon Real Estate and then many years at the Vernon Health Unit.
The family would like to thank friends Krista, Lee, and Tracy for their companionship and care of Marilynn as well as Angie, her “Sister of the heart”.
Marilynn’s ashes will be placed with her parents in the Vernon Cemetery. A memorial gathering will be held at a time to be determined next spring.
Donations to the British Columbia Lung Association in memory of Marilynn would be appreciated.Obituary
