On Sunday October 21, 2012 Marilyn Burrows, retired teacher, friend, volunteer and neighbour passed away peacefully at the Prince George University Hospital. Friends were at her side.
In the spirit of independence and adventure, Marilyn left her Vancouver home in the early 1970s to begin her teaching career. She made friends and memories while encouraging students at Topley Elementary School, Grassy Plains Elementary School, and Muriel Mould Primary School for more than thirty years. As well as being a devoted teacher, Marilyn supported numerous local organizations as a patron and a volunteer.
Marilyn always made time for friends as evidenced in the outpouring of support through visits, phone calls, e-mails, cards and letters during her illness.
Marilyn was predeceased by her parents and many friends. She leaves behind her many more friends from around the world. Marilyn will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Life Tea is planned for Friday November 30th from 3:30 to 5:30 PM at the Muriel Mould Primary School gym.
