She will forever be remembered as a proud Grandmother to Cole, William, Anna and Clark Yablonsky (Jada Marsh), Richard Rayne Marsh, Rowan & ElzBeth Highgate (Kandace Marsh) and spunky, loving Aunt to her many Nephews and Nieces.
Marilyn was a light in so many lives. Born in Toronto, Ontario and raised in Regent Park, she spent many years in Alcona Beach, Innisfil, Ontario and surrounding area, spending her final years with family in Sarnia. She will be fondly remembered by her friends, as the jokester, "take no bull", adventurous, proud & stubborn soul who loved her family. She was often seen riding her Harley Davidson/Triumph motorcycle or driving her Mustang, wherever her soul took her. Unique and full of creativity, Marilyn was known for her genuine personality, impeccable style and ability to coordinate her beautiful outfits, from Jewelry & purse to matching footwear.
She was a shooting star; Irreplaceable, unforgettable, extremely loved and full of comebacks that would have you laughing until you cried. For a little lady, she was full of life. A "Jack of all trades", Marilyn loved refurbishing & building furniture, reupholstering projects and creating new designs and outfits. She was a woman who LOVED poetry, music, making children happy, gardening and flowers. She would often be found outside enjoying nature's beauty, singing along to songs or making up her own and giving the neighbourhood kids a place to go, no matter the situation.
Marilyn's intellect combined with her sense of humour and kind heart gave her the ability to make anything and everything extra special. From writing heartfelt letters and poems in cards and books, to making every occasion as magical and meaningful as she could.
Marilyn lived her life to the fullest of her ability. She was a survivor. Strong, independent, fierce, intelligent, resourceful, genuine, loving and true spirited. An old soul. Her strength and determination were unmatched and admired. She once wrote:
"I did the thing I feared the most,
forgive me if I cheer!
For here I stand a stronger soul and all I lost was fear"
A brave and strong woman who gained peace as she slipped into the great beyonds of forever.
Marilyn Antionette Marsh
June 24, 1961 - March 18, 2022
As said to her children as she tucked them in for slumber, we now say to her:

God bless you & I love you"
May she Rest in Peace.
