Marilyn was so many things to so many people, but her favourite things were family, travel, country concerts and of course Tim Horton’s. Her sister and best friend Debbie was there by her side for it all and they were an unstoppable team. She was always on the go, whether it was off to appointments, flying out to Ontario or BC, jumping into the car with Myron for a weekend visit to Saskatchewan to see their kids, a play, a blues festival, or a Garth Brooks concert, whatever the reason it was always done with a  Timmies in her hand.

Marilyn and Myron rarely missed a family Reunion. Marilyn thrived on large family gatherings, always making sure to include everyone and always making enough food to feed an army. She had the    amazing ability of remembering everyone, their histories, and a great story to go with it. She had unyielding patience and understanding and would sit and listen on the phone for hours, day or night, if someone needed to talk.

Marilyn was an avid country concert goer and also loved the casino, playing cards, camping, fishing and just being out in her yard with her flowers and Myron. But above all Family was everything to her.
