It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Marilyn Hope Britton on October 8th, 2014. Marilyn will be sadly missed by her husband of forty-two years, Richard, her children William and Tracie, and granddaughter Hannah.
Marilyn will be remembered for her courage, determination and strength of spirit throughout her life and especially in her battle with cancer. She was an avid gardener, a successful business owner and a traveler of the world. She loved to entertain; her family and friendships were important to Marilyn.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital who treated her with loving care and respect.
A Celebration of Marilyn’s Life will be held for family and close friends at a date to be determined.
