  1. Gayle and Dave Ross :

    Gayle and I would like to extend our sincere sympathy to all of Marilyn’s family . Marilyn and her good friend , Sharon Hawkins took Gayle under their wings over 25 years ago at the Aquafit class at the ‘” Y ” and they became good friends. Marilyn was one of the “ringleaders ” and always helped and plan the coffee, theme events , birthday’s, x-mas party and anything else that had to be organized at the class. Marilyn’s sense of humour, her laugh, her caring and most of all — her friendship — will be sorely missed.

    Marilyn – R.I.P.

    Gayle and Dave
