It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, devoted wife, and family matriarch. She passed away peacefully at the Battlefords Union Hospital, surrounded by her loved ones on Sunday, March 19, 2023, at the age of 74. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and the countless people whose lives she touched with her kindness and generosity.
Marilyn is lovingly remembered by her family: her husband of 57 years, Dennis Remeshylo; son, Dean (Krista) Remeshylo; daughter, Dyan (Jann) Zdunick; grandsons: Jordan (Christina) Remeshylo, Jared Remeshylo, Luke (Jordan) Remeshylo; granddaughter, Raegan (Andy) Zdunick; great-granddaughters: Hailey Remeshylo, Bridget Remeshylo; brother, Jim (Cindy) Kanz; sisters-in-law: Rosemarie (Kerry) Tollefson, Lynn (Doug) Remeshylo; numerous nieces and a nephew.
Marilyn was predeceased by her parents: William and Helen Kanz (nee Hirschfeld), Luke and Katherine Remeshylo (nee Vinnick) and her brothers-in-law: Nick Remeshylo and Terry Tollefson.
Marilyn had a zest for life and a passion for everything she did. She had a love for cooking, baking, gardening, fishing, camping, playing cards, and spending time with her loved ones. Her creative talents extended beyond the kitchen and the great outdoors, as she was also an expert at quilting, sewing, and various crafts.
Marilyn was a successful business owner, having owned a bridal store, a craft store, and a catering business. She also hosted numerous hunters from Canada and the USA, who enjoyed her warm hospitality and delicious meals. Prior to her retirement, she worked at Statistics Canada and was highly respected for her professionalism and work ethic.
Marilyn was a devoted grandmother who loved her grandchildren with all her heart. She was always there for them, ready to offer a listening ear or a comforting hug. She loved hosting family gatherings to celebrate Christmas, birthday parties and other events, always making sure that everyone felt loved and included.
Marilyn’s passing has left a void in our lives, but her legacy will live on through her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and all those who were fortunate enough to have known her. We take comfort in knowing that she is now at peace and reunited with her loved ones who have passed on before her.
At Marilyn’s request a celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Battlefords Union Hospital Foundation Po Box 1358 North Battleford, SK S9A 3L8. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who have offered their condolences and support during this difficult time.
