Obituary Announcement


March 25, 2017, at St. Joseph’s Hospice

“Her spirit chaungѐd house”

Marilyn was a native of Lincoln, Nebraska.  She met her husband, Charles, in 1949 at Indiana University, where they were graduate students. They married in 1950 and lived in Sarnia for 57 years.  In addition to her husband, Marilyn is survived by their three children, Ralph (Cheryl), Mark (Elizabeth) Jean (Dale Miner); grandchildren Erin (Jeffrey Hackett), Kate, Andrew, Cameron; great grandson Emerson Hackett. Marilyn was always curious and enjoyed learning.  She was an early member of Lambton Wildlife, attended numerous bible study sessions, and liked to participate in many a political discussion.  She was also a natural teacher.  For several years, Marilyn was active in Brownies and Girl Guides, as leader and commissioner, and she taught piano to many students, both young and old.  She herself was a skilled pianist, with a pleasing touch on the keys and through her              piano-playing, she instilled a love of music in her children.  Her family remembers how much fun we all had at our gatherings, with Mom always adding laughter and adventure to the times we were together. Marilyn once said that her most valuable attribute was her smile, and the vibrancy that came with it, will always be remembered by her family and friends.

Charles - my sincere condolences to you and your family. Marilyn's picture brought back so many memories of the mornings we shared in the exercise room at Holiday Inn. She always had such a brilliant smile and interesting things to say as we walked the treadmill or rode the bikes. I remember seeing the two of you enjoying a coffee after your swim and how you would take one home to her on the days she was not up to coming with you. You were a lovely couple.

I'm so sorry to hear of Marilyn's passing. It marks the of an era and a wonderful life. She was my only first cousin on the Mayo side. I remember vividly the pink satin bridesmaid dress I wore in her wedding. I felt so grown up. To have her and Chud at our 50th wedding anniversary in California in 2004 was so special and the last time she and the three Mayo sisters were together. It is with many loving memories that I send you condolences, we will all miss her. My love to you all...Donna

Dear Chud, Ralph, Mark, Jean and family......sad to hear about Marilyn's passing. Spending time with Marilyn was always a special treat. She was so positive and interested in life and always helping others. In recent years I enjoyed her visits to Mom. Marilyn actually got both Mom and I knitting squares that she was combining for knee blankets for the wheel chair bound. I am sure she was a wonderful mother and spouse. May your mourning thoughts soon be great memories of your fun times with Marilyn. Fondly, MEW

Mary Ellen Walker and Jim Omland (husband)

It was with a heavy heart that I learned of Marilyn's passing. I remember her cheerful smile and, especially, the compassion that flowed from her and Chud when Dick passed away. There is no question she will be missed by our entire family and, I am sure, her many friends! Love, Rhonda
