  • I met Marlyn in 1982, showing up at her house with Val, a very dear friend of mine from college. Marlyn was always so kind and hospitable and had a truly fabulous sense of humour. She certainly enjoyed life and made me feel very welcome in her home. My deepest condolences to Valerie, Patti and Rick and to her extended family. - Posted by: Roberta Sveinson RTR (Friend of Val) on: Dec 31, 2022

  • Marlyn was congenial, intelligent and had a keen sense of humour. Doug and Marlyn were proud and loving parents and their home was a welcoming place for friends. Doug and I spent a lot of years as cruiser car partners and detectives, and I always looked forward to his company on and off the job. As my father and mother aged, Marlyn was always so kind and helpful to them when she worked for Safeway and my folks adored her. Marlyn's grace and friendliness is unforgettable and we honor her memory. Dick and Mary Hickling - Posted by: Dick and Mary Hickling (friends) on: Dec 31, 2022
