Marilyn McGuire

MCGUIRE (née HUNNISETT), Marilyn Gail – Marilyn passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, December 7, 2023, in her 74th year. She will be greatly missed by her children Erin (Jason) and Geoffrey (Allison), grandchildren Cameron, Patrick and Ewan, siblings Barbara, Paul and Carol (Jim), and friend and past husband Lawrence. A lifelong member of the United Church of Canada, she had an enduring love for sacred music and sang in church choirs for much of her life. In recent years, she took pleasure in rekindling her passion for playing the piano. Though she struggled at times with depression, she retained her sweetness and good humour. She loved receiving visits from family, and her children and grandchildren will always remember the warmth with which she embraced them all. A memorial service will be held at the Ward Funeral Home, 2035 Weston Road (North of Lawrence Ave.), Weston, on Friday, December 22, in the Chapel at 3 p.m. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
