Obituary for Marilyn Brenda Crook

Marilyn  Brenda   Crook
It is with great sadness that the family of Marilyn Brenda Crook, 64 of Maitland, announces her passing on Thursday, February 1, 2018 at Queens General Hospital, Liverpool.

Born in Big Lots, she was the daughter of the late Rodney and Lena (Ernst) Hirtle.

Marilyn worked for over 45 years with Highliner Foods (National Seafoods) Lunenburg where she was Union President with Local CAW 1944 for over 30 years. She was also a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #23, Lunenburg and a former board member for Harbour House. Marilyn always believed in standing up for her convictions and over the years she ran as a candidate for the NDP Party and was awarded the N. S. Women's Lady of the Year award by the Labour Council.

Marilyn loved music and dancing and looked forward to connecting with people at family gatherings and social functions. She enjoyed her home and the simple pleasures it brought, spending many happy hours with her adored grand-daughters, Amber and Fayth, reading a great book and time spent with her feline companions.

Marilyn is survived by her daughter, Tracy (Jamie) Knickle, Blue Rocks, grand-daughters, Amber Knickle (Thomas Rafuse) Middlewood and Fayth Knickle, Blue Rocks; sister, Sharon (Emdon) Wade, Maitland and a brother, Vincent, (Linda) Hirtle, Maitland, and nieces, Nicole, Tanya, Mary and Michelle.

Friends are invited to share their memories of Marilyn with her family during visitation on Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Dana L. Sweeny Funeral home, 11213 Hwy. # 3, Lunenburg and where a memorial service to celebrate Marilyn's life will be held 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, Rev. Chad MacCharles, officiating.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to SHAID Tree Animal Shelter, Christ Church Restoration Fund or to Queen's General Hospital, Liverpool.
