Please accept my deepest sympathies to all of you at this time of loss. Marilyn worked for my parents and I always thought that she was the most amazing woman. She always spoke so kindly of her family. If I recall correctly your Dad worked for my parents as well. Both of them were so hard working. She was always so kind. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Keep all the memories close to give you comfort. Susan VanMoerkerke-Pettit

Lorrie phoned today, Monday, to share the news of Aunt Marilyn's passing. I am so sorry for your loss of a wonderful lady. Aunt Marilyn always had a smile for us and was so loving. I will keep all of you in my prayers as you mourn the loss of a precious soul. I did not know how to contact any of you personally so have reached out in this forum. I have wonderful memories of all of you -
Chris, Dixie and Mickie. Sincerely, Bonnie (Jones) Heyblom.

We want to express our sympathy to Marilyn's family at this sad time. We have many memories of time spent with Bill and Marilyn. There are too many to recall all of them here but we will just mention a few. We shared many "coffees" with them, -- we snowmobiled together (and yes Marilyn even handled some small hills) at Port Sydney and on the Bruce, as well as other northern places, and locally, -- we had parties together (some of them in their house on Goshen Road ) , -- we attended many dances and many New Year's Eve celebrations together along with other friends. We remember both of them fondly.
Blessings, Bill and Maida Chanyi.
