After fighting a courageous battle with cancer, Marylyn Service-Peters passed peacefully on the 13th October in the early hours under the beautiful skies of a new morning sunrise. She has gone to join those she loved who left before her; her mother, Margaret Service, father, Jack Service, sister, Valerie Ethier, and husband, Robert Peters.
Marylyn was a kind soul and could often be found helping others. She was a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an aunt and a friend, and will be missed by many. She loved living and fought her battle with strength till her last breath
She leaves behind her daughters Chantal (Mike) and Rachelle (Randal), her Granchildren, Riley, Emily, Chloe & Nicholas. As well has her 3 remaining siblings Rob (Kathy), Jane (Cochrane) and Mike (Pat). She was also a Step-Mother to Corey (Sue) & Kyle (Erin) and a Step-Grandmother to Emma, Hailey and Gracie.
Marilyn has lived Coast to coast in Canada and had many friends throughout the Provinces. Her most favourite spot was the East Coast of Canada where she spent 3 years in the Armed Forces, an endeavour she held with great pride.
She passed away in the community of Souris/Elgin Manitoba which she called home for over 2 decades, with her loving sister by her side.
She is home with her Lord. Good night, sleep tight, you’re loved. Till next till. May you find love, peaceful rest and eternal calm.
A Celebration of Life was held at St. Luke’s Anglican Church, Souris, on Thursday, October 19, 2023.
