Marilyn was born in the Fraser Valley and grew up in Vancouver, BC. After marrying her high school sweetheart, she moved back to Abbotsford where they raised their family of 5, enjoying the space and inner calm of living on a small acreage. At-home support for the family electrical business, and secretarial work at a local Christian High School added to her days as a busy Mom.
Now an empty-nester navigating life as a widow, Marilyn has relocated to Alberta to be more directly involved in the lives of 2 of her children (along with precious grandchildren) who "defected" to the mountain-less prairies. She discovered the awesome beauty of the big-sky, stunning sunrises and sunsets, PST-free shopping, and what it's like to be part of the amazing grain farming community of Alberta!
