Marilyn passed away peacefully on March 13th, 2019 in her home at Berwick By the Sea in Campbell River.
She is survived by her three children – Sharon Laird (Scott), David Bowman (Shirley), (Donna), and Garth Bowman (Wendy). She is dearly missed by her grandchildren Josiah Sean, Zoe (Justin), Allison (Vasco), and Laura (Ashkan), as well as her five great grandchildren – Quinn, Rylee, Nathan, Liam and Arman.
Marilyn was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba – and met the love of her life, Gordon, at the age of fourteen! They married at a young age, and she became a nurturing mother to Sharon, David and Garth in the years that followed.
After Gordon’s retirement in 1994, Marilyn and Gordon moved to Campbell River, BC to be close to their children and grandchildren.
The years spent in Campbell River were immensely gratifying for Marilyn, as she was able to be involved in her grandchildren’s development and family life.
In recent years, Marilyn and Gordon have enjoyed the comforts and amenities of the local Berwick By the Sea Community. Marilyn’s family is deeply appreciative of the exceptional support provided by the Berwick management and staff.
Marilyn was an amazing wife to Gordon, and a loving and supportive mother and grandmother. She is greatly missed by her family and friends.
