They married in December 19, 1969 and welcomed 2 children, Sharmaine and Danah. Arnold passed in 2009 and during then Marilyn was living back in Calgary. Life was simple Marilyn was considered by all a social butterfly. Those who encountered her never forgot her beautiful smile and conversations. Her favourite pass time would be going for breakfast at Nellies in Calgary and meeting people.
