Peacefully, on December 5, 2017, with her loving family at her side. Marilyn loved her children, Luanne (Keith) and Stan. She was cherished by her grandchildren Adam (Jen), Candace, and Chris. She will be missed by her sister and best friend Marylou. Mer always cherished their time together, especially near the sand and surf. She will be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews. Mer lived a full and exciting life (many joked that she was like a cat with nine lives). She endured much pain but always rose above it as champions do. Marilyn's life was enriched by so many loving loyal friends, Betty, Manu, Darlene, Shirley, Phyllis, and Maria. As Mer's beloved Sun sets on her life, we honour her with "A Celebration of Life", at the Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W. (between Kipling and Islington Aves.), on Friday December 8, 2017, at 11 am, preceded by visitation beginning at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. On-line condolences may be made using this website.
