Marilyn joined Genes about 8 years ago and she spent a lot of time on these boards…… until she started being ill about a year ago.

After being in and out of hospital with various problems she found out that cancer was at the root of all the problems.

The last 6 months have been very hard for her as she bravely suffered a lot of pain. Operations and chemo seemed to help at first but she just couldn’t fight any longer. Our lovely Marilyn lost her battle for life yesterday morning with all her family around her bed. Her husband said it was a peaceful passing.

My heart goes out to her devoted husband, Pete, and all of their family.

Rest in Peace, Marilyn, you’ll be greatly missed by all of us who loved you.

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

If I should go tomorrow
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don't you ever cry.
The love that's deep within me,
Shall reach you from the stars,
You'll feel it from the heavens,
And it will heal the scars.

Marilyn and I used to say we were the Linen Queens, as we both used to buy our Summer Linens each year, and we discussed them, saying what we were going to buy. We did laugh over the amount of clothes we both bought!

I shall miss Marily very much, we spoke on the Friendly Thread, and we also wrote a number of PM's to each other.

She was a lovely, warm, friendly lady, with a great sense of humour.

She will be greatly missed by Pete and her boys. My condolences to them.

God Bless, Marilyn. RIP
