July 27, 1975 – Calgary, AB
February 7, 2014 – Calgary, AB
On Friday, February 7, 2014, the Lord welcomed a special Angel. Marlis Adel McLeod passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at Rockyview General Hospital at the age of 38 years.
Born in Calgary on July 27, 1975, Marlis attended Braeside Elementary, John Ware Junior High and graduated from Henry Wisewood High School. She will be remembered for her infectious smile, inner strength, free spirit, courage and compassion. Marlis loved people and was loved by all who knew her. Confined to a wheelchair for the last twenty years never swayed her love for being around people, enjoying the outdoors and being close to animals, especially horses and her dog Pepper.
Marlis will be deeply missed by her parents Doug and Carol McLeod, her brother Justin (Katherine); nieces Kameron and Liveah; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
