She is one of the kindest people I have ever met and had the great pleasure of spending time with. Always so giving of her time and herself...and always with a smile. With my deepest condolences, strength and peace to all.

I want to extend my personal condolences to Steven, Margaret and Christian on the loss of their mother and grandmother. Working with Steven at Theatre Aquarius was always a pleasure. When Albert and Marilyn started volunteering at Theatre, you never knew what to expect each night. Albert was always there with a joke, comeback to any remark, or even life advice for the bar staff, and always had a smile on his face, and a candy in his pocket for those who wanted, or maybe needed one. Marilyn would just smile when Albert would be doing his routine each night, enjoying their time together. You will be missed Marilyn

Marilyn and Albert were long-time volunteers at Theatre Aquarius. Alberta was always quite a character and Marilyn would enjoy his antics and teasing as much as the rest of us.

I don't think I ever saw Marilyn without a smile on her face. She must be beaming now to be reunited with her Albert. They were both missed when Albert left us and then when Marilyn had to cut back her volunteering. They will always be in the hearts of those they shared their evenings with as they volunteered.
