Marilyn Francis Grant

September 13, 1930 – October 1, 2015

Marilyn was born in Hamilton, Ontario, to John M. and Mabel (Francis) Ferguson. After graduating from McMaster U. as a teacher, she made her way to Princeton, B.C., where she met her husband, the late Douglas R. Grant (2007). They resided in Coquitlam, Pender Island and Maple Ridge, B.C., raising four children; Anne, John (Shauna), Karen and Barbara. Marilyn was a devoted wife and mother who also tirelessly worked for the benefit of others as a member of the United Church. As well as her children, she is survived by seven grandchildren; Joshua, Kayla, Jordan, Gloria, Emilie, Dennis and Jason.

A celebration of Marilyn’s life will be held on Saturday, October 10 at 2:00 pm at Queens Ave. United Church in New Westminster.
In lieu of flowers donations to the Golden Ears United Church fund to sponsor a refugee family would be greatly appreciated.
