Marilyn enjoyed a successful career in Real Estate and eventually retired to spend her golden years in Burlington, Ontario. She lived an active life and was proud of the fact she was the oldest member at her gym. Marilyn loved to travel and was always heading off somewhere, she especially loved her annual visits to Florida over the last 25 yrs. She enjoyed a couple of European Cruises with all her children, and a couple of Carribbean Cruises with her siblings. Her travels were all about family. Marilyn will be remembered for her love of life, her quick wit and contagious laughter. She was at her best surrounded by her family and grand kids especially around a card table playing Euchre. Marilyn cherished her summers with her children, family and friends at Lake Huron on Point Clarke beach and were some of the fondest memories we all reminisced about in later years.
