HARVEY – Marlene Carol Anne (nee Gallagher)

December 24, 1958 – April 16, 2011

Marlene (Marly) Harvey passed away peacefully, with her family beside her, after suffering a massive heart attack, on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the age of 52 years.

Marly will be missed terribly by her beloved husband Jerry; her sister Sandra; her sisters-in-law, Ruth, Sue, Janie, and Penny; her brothers-in-law, Jake, Dennis and Doug. Marly was a devoted aunt and will be lovingly remembered by her many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Thomas (1974) and Jean (2008); her brothers, Danny (2005) and Jack (2008).

Marly’s greatest passion in life was her dogs. She was deeply devoted to her “fur kids” and the depths of her love for them knew no bounds. Her passing has left a huge void in the lives of Token, Promise, Callie, Dana, and Dex. Marly moved to Calgary from Toronto in the fall of 1981. She quickly fell in love with the majestic beauty of the province, embracing her new home.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. You may forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    Gerry, Sandra and family,

    Jane and I share deeply in your grief. You have lost a wonderful wife and partner. We have all lost a great friend, comforter and mentor. Marly’s passion for her interests was admired and respected by all who knew her. It was a priviledge to have been involved in her life and we will forever miss our Marly.

    My deepest condolences to the family. Marley will be missed by many.

    Though I have only known Marley for a few years of her life, we talked for many hours about our love of the Poodle and dogs in general. I will miss our many chats, her tireless help and her enthusiasm.

    We trailed together in veterans this last summer with our old girlzzz at the National Specialty and the picture I have always brings a smile.

    Though I cannot be at the service, please know my heart is with you in saying prayers for Marley and she will have a spot in my heart forever.

    I am shocked as I am sure all of Marly’s family is. I knew Marly through Poodles and got to her better last year during through the Poodle Club of Canada National Specialty in July. She was a hard worker, a bright light and a lover of Poodles. She will be missed.

    Please accept my sympathy on Marly’s tragic death. She left us much too soon. I have corresponded with her for many years and we were finally able to meet two years ago at a show in Ontario. We planned to get together at PCA. She was such a happy, open hearted and loving person. Hugs to Token, Promise, Callie, Shimmer, Cricket, Dana and Dex.

    How do you make sense out of something so senseless? I am in shock, as I’m sure are the family members closest to Marly. Jerry, you were so lucky to have had her in your life these past 25 years. I remember fondly our days at Esso Resources and the hospitality you and Marly showed me many times over the years. God bless and comfort you in this difficult time. I can’t be there on Thursday but will be in touch soon.

    Marly…a truly amazing woman…a wonderful friend; kind, thoughtful, generous, and still vital in my mind. Her way with animals… a very special calm connection and understanding that few people possess. I regret that I’m selfish and I’m not quite ready to speak of Marly in the past tense. We were so looking forward to being neighbors and getting together next month in Arizona. A gaping hole will be felt in the hearts of everyone fortunate enough to know Marly in this world, but heaven will surely be blessed by her presence. We send our love and prayers to Marly’s family.

    I am shocked and deeply saddened by the news of Marly’s passing. Marly was a true friend of mine. We met on the internet through our mutual love of poodles, and vacationed together once when we both went to the Poodle Club of America National Specialty for the first time. It was a trip to remember and we vowed to do it again some day. I will never forget Marly’s beautiful eyes, her warmth, sincerity, kindness, and her beautiful soul. I am so blessed to have known Marly and to call her my friend and role model – she will be in my heart always.

    My heartfelt condolences to Jerry and all of Marly’s family at this sad and difficult time.

  27. My most sincere condolences to Marly’s family, Ruth, Rebecca and John. I had the most wonderful fortune to speak with Marlene a few years ago when she generously sponsored me for my Cops for Cancer event in honor of her Brother Jack. We had a lovely conversation and although I understood her reason for supporting my cause, I was overwhelmed by her generosity and her sweetness. I am so very sorry for all whose lives she touched and of course for her furry babes, who may miss her most of all. Love Susan Mundy
