Passed peacefully on February 1, 2019 at the Sault Area Hospital at the age of 86.
Born on November 4, 1932, the daughter of the late Fred and Isabel “Toots” Miller, she was a long-time resident of Sault Ste. Marie. She will be deeply longed for by her stalwart husband, Joe Ryan – being married for over sixty-six years. Daughter Anna Lee and son-in-law Grant Buck will miss her caring support, love, and telephone calls. Andrew, Jordan and Melissa Buck will miss their grandmother’s conversations and her concern over their welfare. Marilyn is predeceased by son Fred, sister Diane Bates and survived by her sister, Sandra Giddings and brother-in-law Hank Bates. In addition, Marilyn and Joe shared their lives with so many close-knit friends who stayed connected all their adult lives. Everyone’s support over the years has been immeasurable and much appreciated.
