Marilyn was involved with Chronic pain Society and had a voice through accessibility for all in the Comox Valley, Marilyn was a listening ear to all who called, encouraging, a support person and an advocate. She was involved with fund raising too.
She loved to sing, and to swim and she also loved smiles and hugs, along with dinner parties with family and friends. She held onto traditions like Empire Days in Cumberland, Easter, Canada Day, Christmas, Birthdays, pancake Tuesday.
