July 4, 1935 - December 19, 2023

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our Mom, Nanny, Great Nanny, and Great Great Nanny Marlene Stranaghan.

She will be lovingly missed by her daughter Cheryl (Gary) Chilliwack, daughter Colleen (Bruce) Cawston, son Darrell (Jacquie) Campbell River, and her many grandchildren, Tiffany, Alexander, Jordan, Chad, Alan, Melanie, Lisa, Shane, plus her many great grandchildren and a great, great grandchild.

She left us December 19, 2023 to be with her husband Len and son Wayne, and all the family and friends that have gone before her, who were waiting to receive her with open arms.

Marlene was born in Winnipeg July 4, 1935 and moved to Victoria as a young girl where she grew up with her parents and three brothers. She started her married life in Bella Coola, which was one of many locations we lived in for Dad's work, including many remote logging camps in the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii). They settled in Chilliwack in 1977.

She enjoyed their travels to many horse shows and motor homing to the states to be "snow birds". She enjoyed her job at Purdy's Chocolates for many years.

You will be greatly missed by all, till we meet again.

Love you Mom X0
