Obituary for Marilyn Whiteside
WHITESIDE, Marilyn June (nee Wilson) Born March 29, 1939 Peacefully surrounded by her family, Marilyn quietly slipped away to receive her wings on September 2, 2017. Her beautiful personality has been missed for much longer as the increasing embrace of dementia plucked away at Marilyn feather by feather. We were grateful for moments when the fog would lift but ultimately saddened as the disease stole Marilyn's wings. She is now flying and is at peace. We are grateful for the empathy and kindness of the wonderful staff at St. Peter's Hospital who fought along side us every step of the way and helped give Marilyn the love and comfort she deserved. Following Marilyn's wishes, cremation has taken place. The family would like to honour her life and memory. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, at 7 p.m., Trinity United Church Grimsby. Donations to McNally House Hospice would be appreciated by her family.
