Marilyn Ann Kerfoot

April 16, 1940 - May 25, 2012


Marilyn Ann Kerfoot
April 16, 1940 – May 25, 2012
Until we meet again….

Marilyn has gone home to be with her Savior, Jesus Christ. She passed suddenly, but peacefully at KLDH with her family and many friends by her side. She had a wonderful day visiting, talking on the phone with her grandchildren and even skyping with her newest great grandchild. It was a good day!
Marilyn was one of 7 children born to Mavis and Bill Douglas. She was the eldest of her siblings; Bart (Nancy) Douglas, Carolea (Bob) Cutler, Judy Douglas, Bev Kirk, Billy (Sally) Douglas, Tom (Janet) Douglas. She lived her younger years in the Lower Mainland and then moved to the Slocan Valley in 1962 with her husband; the love of her life, Charlie Kerfoot, and their young family. Some of you may remember Marilyn from the years her and her sister Carolea ran their parents restaurant, the Maybill Motor Inn, in Winlaw. Marilyn had many interests in her life time. She played and coached softball; bowled; enjoyed bingo; and loved gardening, especially her flower garden in Winlaw. Marilyn’s favorite summertime activity was camping with Charlie and her and family at Silverton and at Wragge Beach. Marilyn raised 6 children and many of their friends along the way. Her door was always open and the coffee was brewing. She had a gift of making people feel welcomed and loved. She enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends. Marilyn’s family was her treasure and she will be deeply missed by her husband of 55 years, Charlie Kerfoot; her 6 children, Deb (Phil) Evdokimoff of Passmore, Ray Kerfoot of Castlegar, Chuck (Deanna) Kerfoot of Robson, Kim (Sheldon) McArthur of Perry Siding, Kevin Kerfoot of Winlaw, Koreen (Todd) Williamson of Blewett, her 15 grandchildren; her 6 great grandchildren (and the one on the way). Marilyn was predeceased by her parents Bill and Mavis, her sister Judy, and her brother Bart.
A special thank you to Dr. Richard Milde and the nursing staff at KLDH; you were very dear to Marilyn. Thank you for taking good care of her.

So many great memories of hanging out with the Kerfoot clan growing up. Such a loving mom and always there for a hug or to talk to. With so many kids of her own, she always welcomed all us extras in and we felt like one of the clan too! Thankfully I got to see her at the clinic when I was working and occasionally in Walmart. Hugs to all of you at this difficult time of loss. She will be missed by us all!! Special hugs and kisses to Charlie! xxoo.
