Ken, we were so saddened to learn of Marilyn's passing, May your many happy & memorable memories of your life together sustain you through this difficult time. Marilyn was such a happy, out-going person and always a smile on her face. We sure had some fun times at the hockey games. She will be missed by many, for her smile was enjoyed by all that knew her.

With love, Keith & Mary Moon

For years Marilyn has been my Wednesday morning McDonalds breakfast partner. It was just last Wednesday that she was telling me all about Thanksgiving plans with her family whom she loved dearly. She was so proud of each and every one! She will be missed by all the lives that she touched and I was honored to be her friend. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of you!
Sincerely, Nancy Drill

Marilyn was always a good friend and new it all. She and Ken always had friends around.She will be sorely missed and long remembered!

Sharon on Nov 17, 2017

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort to family and friends. "He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces." God will remove sickness, old age and death from the human family. Jesus Christ taught us to pray for God's Kingdom to come at Matthew 6:9,10. God's original purpose for the earth being a paradise will be realized. We will be with our dear loved ones once again. May God's loving promises and your pleasant memories comfort you at this difficult time and in the days ahead.
