To all the Jones, McCauley, and Reid families our deepest sympathy saddest condolences.
~A life time of memories will live on forever through everyone who had the honour to know Marilyn~
Sam Senior once said "give Marilyn 30 minutes with someone and she'll know their life story ". That's our friend!
Marilyn was more than a friend. She was a daughter, sister, wife, proud mother, even prouder grandmother, aunt, and so much more to so many. We are all going to miss her sweet nature, gentle manor and her infectious smile. Thank you for giving us so many wonderful memories.

From the Ursulak's ~ Sylvia, Darlene, Glenn (Jacob), and Gail (Shawn and Lauren)

Ron, Jerry, Sam, Bob and family, please except my condolences on the loss of your Mom. Marilyn was a larger than life personality in many way's who had a heart of gold and a kindness for all. And don't forget her great sense of humor. Thinking of you all at this time and may God Bless you all.

It has been an honour to be named after my Aunt Marilyn. To avoid confusion many of my family call me Lynn or Lynne. My Aunt Marilyn always called me Marilyn. She was a very special Aunt to me and I loved her very much.
What I will always remember about her is how much she loved her family, her desire to please them by cooking wonderful meals for them. Her laughter and her generous heart.
Auntie was a very spiritual person and her faith gave her the strength she needed to live out her final years.
I will miss her more than words can express.🙏🏽❤️
