LAURSEN, Marilyn 1955-2011 was taken from us suddenly on Wednesday, May 18th in White Rock. Predeceased by her father, Victor Cecil, in 2006. Survived by her mother, Mildred, daughter, Angela (Arthur), brother, Don (Laverne), sisters, Lynné (Neale) and Cheryl (Gordon) and brother Christian (Irma); nieces and nephews, Richard (Karen), Stuart (Kelli), Patrick, Adam (Marsha), Travis (Mary), Derek, and their children. She is also survived by Ron (Janet) Halicki and family. And of course her cat-roommates Ebony and Velvet. It is impossible to put into words how vibrant and full of life Marilyn is. Her energy is electric, as everyone who knows her is fortunate to have experienced. No one lights up a room quite like Marilyn. She has an immense passion for her work and is mourned not just by her employer MHL Transport but by the entire transportation/logistics industry. Her love for shoes – on her feet or ornamental – is evident the moment she walks into your life. Her hobbies are endless and everchanging. She’s a gardener, a golfer, a fisher, a quilter, a knitter, a bird watcher, and even a painter. Recently she had even become a gourmet cook. Marilyn is an avid beachcomber, collecting beach glass from as close to home as the Pacific Ocean, and as far away as the point where the Indian and Southern Oceans meet. We will remember her as more than just Marilyn. She is our “Bee-bop”, our “Sprout” and our beautiful “Marigold”. Forever in our hearts Marilyn, daughter, sister, Mom, friend. A Celebration Of Life will be held Monday, May 30th, 2011 at 2:00pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey. Please make a donation in Marilyn’s name to Riefel Bird Sanctuary, 5191 Robertson Rd, Delta, BC V4K 3N2 or charity of your choice.
