Obituary for Marilyn Ann Middlemass (Forbes)

Middlemass, Marilyn Ann

August 25, 1937 – September 17, 2022

Marilyn passed away peacefully on September 17, 2022 at 85 years of age after a lengthy battle with cancer. She is predeceased by her mother, Evelyn Forbes, and her father, Allan Forbes. She is survived by her husband, Bob, three children, Dean, Mike (Jill), and Keesha, two granddaughters, Lauren and Ally, brother Robert Forbes, and cousin Beverley Adams.

Marilyn and Bob married in 1958 and moved to West Vancouver in 1964 where they raised their family. Marilyn was a dedicated and proud mother and spent many years on the side lines of the soccer and track fields. She returned to school to obtain her double degree in Sociology and Anthropology from SFU in 1985, and shortly after enjoyed working in the West Vancouver Planning Department. Marilyn was an enthusiastic traveler visiting over fifty countries in her lifetime. This included a 15-month European trip in 1969 in a Volkswagen camper with her young family, including 2-year-old Mike and 6-year-old Dean. She taught Dean grade 1 during their many adventures. Later, during retirement, with Bob by her side, they went on numerous trips to Europe, Australia, Africa, Asia, USA, and across Canada.

She will be deeply missed by her family and friends. In lieu of flowers donations to your choice of charity will be appreciated.
