Death took Marilyn by the hand and gently tip toed off with her in her 70th year.
Marilyn died at home in the evening of September 1, 2019, having spent a joyful final day with Meaghan, Anthony, Noah and John.
She leaves behind her loving husband of 23 years, John, daughter Meaghan Candy-Granville (Anthony), sons Eric Wells (Margarita) and Scott Wells (Sarah). Marilyn passes from the lives, but not memories of five grieving grandchildren Noah Granville (2), Eryka Wells (16), Samantha Wells (13), Alexandra Wells (12) and Sawyer Wells (9).
Marilyn spent 28 very productive years in the Faculty of Forestry rising through the administrative ranks to the position of Registrar.
In retirement, she enjoyed travelling, sewing, spending time in Florida and entertaining friends and family.
Marilyn was finally defeated by the brutality of spreading cancer and the confusion of Alzheimer’s.
Marilyn was a kind, gentle soul with a sharp wit. She was universally loved and will be missed by those who knew her.
