November 11, 1931 – February 13, 2009
It is with deep sadness that we announce Marlys quietly passed away February 13, 2009 with Louis her devoted husband of 51 years by her side. She was a wonderful wife and mother to a family who loved her deeply. She leaves to mourn her passing, husband Louis, daughters Louise Lorentz (Ernie), Barbara Bowbrick (Art), Janice Robinson (Joe) and grandchildren Aaron Lorentz (Lisa), Arthur Bowbrick (Kristin), Gordon Bowbrick, Maryah Chisholm and very special friends Lil and Diane.
A special thank you goes to the paramedics, nurses (who she came to know on a first name basis) and doctors, who over the years took such good care of her. Thank you as well to the homecare workers who helped us care for her these past two months allowing her to remain at home as long as possible.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation 375–2nd Avenue or Sybil Andrews Heritage Society c/o 835-2nd Avenue.
A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, February 22, 2009 at the Maritime Heritage Centre 1–4pm.
