Awesome Grandma/Granny/nanny to Charmain, Kaitlyn (Marc), Joshua (Laura), Amanda, Vanessa, Phillipe (Stephanie) and Christine. Loving great grandmother to Liam and Sabrina. Dear sister of Donald (Beth). Marlyn was an avid baseball player, having played in the 60+ RA league for many years.

Friends are invited to visit the family at the Cooperative Funeraire de l’Outaouais, 1369 boul.

My sincerest condolences at this very difficult time. It is truly the mark of a life well lived to be surrounded by such a large, loving family.

I was greatly saddened to read of Marlyn's passing. The two of you were icons for many years on the ball diamonds at the RA Centre. Together you made a great team. The 60+ league will miss her smile, dedication and energy. My sincerest sympathies to you and your family.

Mervyn et famille

I'd like to extend our sincerely condolences to Marlyn's family on behalf of our (her) 60+ softball league in Ottawa. The grands and great grands are lucky to have known such a vibrant spirit. Along with Mervyn, Marlyn was the first to be officially recognized for long-time contribution to the League. Although she won't be back on the field with us in 2018 as she planned, her memory will remain with us.

"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget"

Allo Richard,

Christine et moi voulons offrir nos sincères sympathies. Nous ne pourrons malheureusement pas assister au service funéraire mais nous sommes avec vous en pensées dans cette épreuve.

Our deepest and sincerest condolences on this terrible loss. My wife and I are shocked and so incredibly saddened by this unexpected and terrible news. Marlyn was a much-loved player and team captain of the 60+ Slo-Pitch league. We loved her strong, take-charge, no guff, personality, and her sense of humour. We were just assuming that we would be on the diamond with again next year. But dam, that won’t happen. We will be thinking of her though next spring, at that first ball game.

Merv - we are so so sorry for your loss.

Merv, so very sad to hear of Marlyn's passing. Loved that woman, so very nice and a really
giving person. i'm sure you will miss her terribly, but will have so many wonderful memories
which in time as we know will bring you great comfort as will your family.
haven't seen you in a while but hope you are doing well, at least as well as we can at our advancing age.
Thinking about you,
My best wishes, Mark

Mervin and the Montroy Family

So sad to hear about Marlyn's passing. I had the privilege of playing the last few games of the 2017 season under her captaincy and had a great time. A very competitive lady but stressed having fun no matter the score. She will be missed by all.

God bless you.

I will always remember Marlyn for her passion for softball and how welcoming she was to me when I first played in the 60+ league. She was a real people person & we enjoyed many laughs over the years. Her passing really shocked me as it was so recent that we were on the field together. The sadness I feel will be shared by many others. My deep condolences to you and your family,Merv. Bob Hansis

To Our Loving Mother in Heaven

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for us,
Place them in our mother's arms,
And Tell her they are from us.
Tell her We Love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a Kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
We do it every day,
But there's an ache within our hearts
that will never go away.
