It is with great sadness that we announce Marilyne’s passing on May 11, 2017 at the age of 76 years. While we struggle with the sudden loss, we are truly comforted in the knowledge she is no longer in pain and is resting peacefully with her beloved sister Gail, mother, Sunia and stepfather David. She is survived by her loving, caring husband, Jim of 55 years and two daughters Raelene (John) and Tyra (Lonnie), her five grandchildren Shaye, Cole, Hailey, Liam and Hanna. As well, her sister, Lorene (Dennis) and a favourite auntie Nora and numerous nieces and nephews.
Marilyne was born in Edmonton, AB but grew up in Vancouver where she met and married the true love of her life, Jim. They moved to Surrey in the 1970s, then finally to Vernon in 1988 where they retired and enjoyed every special occasion with their beloved grandchildren and daughters all of whom will miss her greatly.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 2:00 pm.
