Marilyn was a most valued and dedicated member of the UEL Association and the Grand River Branch.  She served as the Branch Treasurer for several terms and was instrumental, along with others, in the plaquing of the cemeteries in the Grand River area in which Loyalists are buried.  Her UE ancestor was Daniel Servos of Niagara.


She will be missed by all who knew her.
