It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Marilyn Hall;  wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, daughter in law, aunt and friend. Marilyn passed peacefully in her sleep at Shuswap Lake General Hospital after a courageous four year battle with cancer. She will be dearly missed by her loving husband of 40 years, Larry Hall, her daughter Kristine Hall of Cranbrook, her son Ryan Hall (Sherry) of Salmon Arm, her granddaughters Cory – Lynn and Shayna, her mother Dorothy Child of Chilliwack, her sister Carol O’Connor of Chilliwack, her brother Barry Child (Linda) of Surrey and so many nieces, nephews and friends. She was pre deceased by her father (Bill), who passed on December 26, 2012.

Marilyn was born in Vancouver, B.C. on January 23, 1953 and was the youngest of 3 children born to Bill and Dorothy Child. The family eventually settled in Maple Ridge, B.C. where Marilyn finished her schooling and graduated from Maple Ridge High School.

She married Larry Hall on June 30, 1973 and their careers with RBC, took them all over the Province of B.C. Their combined years of service with RBC, numbered 68 years and involved transfers to Coquitlam, Victoria, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Westbank, Salmon Arm and Cranbrook. Retirement came on September 30, 2008 and with it, a return to the Shuswap, resettling in Blind Bay.

Following retirement, Marilyn became an avid quilter, she so loved spending time with her quilting friends and visiting with family/friends. Winters were spent in Palm Springs.

Marilyn lived a full and active life; working, being a truly wonderful wife and mother, travelling, visiting, golfing occasionally, gardening and quilting. She will be forever remembered as a friend to whomever she met. Rest in peace Marilyn, in the safety of Gods hands.

A celebration of Marilyn’s life will be held in the spring, date and time to be announced.

We especially wish to thank the nursing staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, for their superb care of Marilyn. For those that may wish to make a donation in Marilyn’s memory, please donate to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation at PO Box 265, Salmon Arm, B.C. V1E 4N3. Telephone #(250) 803-4565.

  1. As we depart for Salmon Arm tomorrow, I am filled with so many emotions. Marilyn was a relative by marriage, but a friend by choice. I am honored to be in audience remembering her, and know that as I struggle with her passing, I will have many smiles as I think back of fun times and good conversations. Rest peacefully Marilyn – we will chat again.

  2. Our deepest sympathies to Larry and family. Marilyn was a wonderful lady.

  3. We will always hold dear to our heart our memories of Marilyn. To have shared so many wonderful times with you has been our privilege. Your courage and smiling face is an inspiration to us forever! Rest in Peace Marilyn.

  6. Dear Larry

    This is a hard note to write, but I want you to know I am thinking of you even though I don’t know what to say.

    Marilyn always made me feel welcome, at work and in her home. I was in awe of her as a Mother and Wife.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and I wish you peace.

  7. We will miss Marilyn very much.
    She was an inspiration to anyone who had the privledge of knowing her.
    Our recent memories are of her battling cancer with a smile on her face … ALWAYS!!!
    She seemed determined to make certain she her conditon would not interfere with the daily routine and she was not going to bring anyone down.
    We spent time with Marilyn & Larry about 11 months ago in Palm Desert and she was a trooper everytime and everywhere we went.
    We can think of no one we are more proud of to call our FRIEND.
    We’ll miss you, Babe !!

    Love Wendy & Grant
