It is with a sad heart that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Mother; Marilyn Grace Long. She passed away peacefully on November 11th, 2011 surrounded by her loving family. Marilyn was born in Rockglen Saskatchewan on July 12th, 1940. She moved to Nelson in her late teens where she met her husband Donald Long and they started their family. They moved around B.C. and Alberta due to Don’s line of work. After his passing, Marilyn returned to Nelson in 1981 where her heart had always been.
Marilyn’s first loves were her four children and the ten grandchildren that followed. She opened her home and heart freely, and will be remembered as Mom Long to many. Marilyn enjoyed walking with friends, going out for lunch, playing bridge and spending time with her family. She will be deeply missed.
At Marilyn’s request there will be no service, and in lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Heart and Stoke Foundation.
We will be having an open house celebrating Marilyn’s life on Wednesday November 16th at her home at 1303 Selby Street between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 pm. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Thompson Funeral Service Ltd.
