Predeceased by her first husband Rae Shobbrook, second husband Allan Bridge, brother Russell Fear, parents Samuel & Margaret Fear, daughter-in-law Cathy Bridge and son-in-law Marvin Fulmek.

Marilyn’s greatest accomplishment was her family who meant the world to her. She took great pride in her grandchildren. She was so proud of each and every one of them and everything they had accomplished and loved hearing about their lives. She loved when they would come to visit her or call, especially in the last few years while she was on her own. Marilyn was a social butterfly and would drop everything in an instance if an opportunity came to spend time with her family or her friends.
