It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Marilyn Hall; wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, daughter in law, aunt and friend. Marilyn passed peacefully in her sleep at Shuswap Lake General Hospital after a courageous four year battle with cancer. She will be dearly missed by her loving husband of 40 years, Larry Hall, her daughter Kristine Hall of Cranbrook, her son Ryan Hall (Sherry) of Salmon Arm, her granddaughters Cory – Lynn and Shayna, her mother Dorothy Child of Chilliwack, her sister Carol O’Connor of Chilliwack, her brother Barry Child (Linda) of Surrey and so many nieces, nephews and friends. She was pre deceased by her father (Bill), who passed on December 26, 2012.
Marilyn was born in Vancouver, B.C. on January 23, 1953 and was the youngest of 3 children born to Bill and Dorothy Child. The family eventually settled in Maple Ridge, B.C. where Marilyn finished her schooling and graduated from Maple Ridge High School.
She married Larry Hall on June 30, 1973 and their careers with RBC, took them all over the Province of B.C. Their combined years of service with RBC, numbered 68 years and involved transfers to Coquitlam, Victoria, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Westbank, Salmon Arm and Cranbrook. Retirement came on September 30, 2008 and with it, a return to the Shuswap, resettling in Blind Bay.
Following retirement, Marilyn became an avid quilter, she so loved spending time with her quilting friends and visiting with family/friends. Winters were spent in Palm Springs.
Marilyn lived a full and active life; working, being a truly wonderful wife and mother, travelling, visiting, golfing occasionally, gardening and quilting. She will be forever remembered as a friend to whomever she met. Rest in peace Marilyn, in the safety of Gods hands.
