Arthur; Marilyn Ann

May 28, 1948 – September 10, 2014

The family of Marilyn Ann Arthur, age 66, are sad to announce her death, on September 10, 2014, in Chilliwack, BC. She was predeceased by her parents Melvin and Mae Grottenberg. Marilyn is survived by the loves of her life, her husband Paddy, son Devin, daughter-in-law Nova, brother Bert (Darlene) Grottenberg and sister Ila (Perry) Dagsvik as well as numerous other family. Marilyn was born in Port Arthur, attended Hillcrest High School and received a Masters degree in Education with a Gerontology Specialty from Lakehead University. Her career path included teaching for the Lakehead Board of Education and Confederation College. She also worked at Port Arthur General Hospital, Bethammi Seniors’ Housing and Lakehead University. Thunder Bay summers were spent at “camp”, where her family and friends would gather. In 2001, Marilyn and her family moved to the Fraser Valley to pursue a career in health administration with the Fraser Health Authority. She enjoyed every opportunity to learn and grow. She made many wonderful friends along the way. Marilyn was an avid golfer and has many fond memories of sharing stories with friends while on the golf course.

Special thanks to Fraser Health Home Support, Chilliwack Home Health and Cascade Hospice. A heartfelt thank you to her friends and family for their loving support. In lieu of a service and flowers, a donation the ALS Society of BC or the charity of your choice would be appreciated. Online condolences may be offered at www.woodlawn-mtcheam.ca.
