OBITUARY

Marlyn King

July 26, 1936June 11, 2020

With heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Marlyn Anne King July 26, 1936 - June 11, 2020.

She is survived by sister Beverley Iverson (Sonny) and brother Harold King (Gloria) sisters-in-laws Bonnie King and Flora King. She will be missed by many many...nieces and nephews.

Marlyn worked at the Log Cabin Tavern for 50 years and retired in 2001. She loved when people would drop in for coffee and a visit. Mar moved to Parkview Apartments in 2010 where she made many new friendships. You would often see the ladies out walking downtown going for coffee or lunch.

Her passion was reading and watching movies, later on she liked to go for car rides and shopping trips to Winnipeg. She might of been small but she was mighty and loved to eat, especially fries. Auntie Mar was a very kind and generous soul she will be missed (but not forgotten) especially at every holiday and family gathering with her sense of humour and witty comebacks.

Thanks to the 2nd floor nurses for taking excellent care of our little auntie.

There will be no service for Auntie Mar per her wishes.

Online condolences may be made at www.brownfuneralhomekenora.com.

Donations to the Alzheimer’s Society in Auntie Mar’s memory would be greatly appreciated by the family.

My condolences to the family. I worked at the Log with Marlyn in the seventies. She started there in 1952 and just kept going!
She was very kind and generous with her cooking hints!

I am so sad to hear of Mar’s passing. She was a beloved neighbour of my Mom’s when she lived at Parkview. Such a generous and kind person. Always enjoyed chatting with Mar. Will miss her.

I remember Marlyn when she worked for my Aunt Marion many years ago at the Log Cabin. She was a very hard worker and a very good co-worker. Always a smile and hello for everyone she met. Rest in Peace.
