It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Marilyn Joan McNeil, age 80, of Stouffville, Ontario.  Marilyn passed away on Saturday, December 10, 2022 at the Mon Sheong Long Term Care Facility.

Born in New Glasgow, NS, she was a daughter of the late Percy and Beulah (Mattinson) Smith.

Marilyn was a devoted Christian who fervently believed in the power of prayer. She prayed constantly for the salvation of everyone and instantly broke into prayer when aware of anyone's apparent needs.

Marilyn was a hard worker, was generous to a fault, loved to care for others, but her greatest love was her children. She was a fearless PSW who bravely drove through terrible middle of the night blizzards to reach needy patients.

Marilyn fought a good fight, she finished her course, she kept the faith. She now enjoys her crown of righteousness and the peace that passes all understanding which she looked forward to most of her life.

She is survived by her daughters Beverly Beaucage of Ajax, On and Anna (Andy Bower) Woodrow of Hudson, PQ; 2 granddaughters, Alexa and Ayla; sister in law Rosalind (Perrone) Smith, New Glasgow, NS.

In addition to her parents she was predeceased by her son Mark Woodrow and her brother Garey Smith.

Arrangements have been entrusted to W. Allen Funeral Home, 60 Water St., Oxford, NS (902-447-2167).  A private committal service will be held at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

Donations in memory of Marilyn may be made to the charity of your choice.
