Marilyn Grace Long (nee: Moir)

July 12, 1940 - November 11, 2011


It is with a sad heart that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Mother; Marilyn Grace Long. She passed away peacefully on November 11th, 2011 surrounded by her loving family. Marilyn was born in Rockglen Saskatchewan on July 12th, 1940. She moved to Nelson in her late teens where she met her husband Donald Long and they started their family. They moved around B.C. and Alberta due to Don’s line of work. After his passing, Marilyn returned to Nelson in 1981 where her heart had always been.
Marilyn’s first loves were her four children and the ten grandchildren that followed. She opened her home and heart freely, and will be remembered as Mom Long to many. Marilyn enjoyed walking with friends, going out for lunch, playing bridge and spending time with her family. She will be deeply missed.

We are so sorry we cannot be there with you and the family tomorrow, but when the nicer weather returns – we will have our own little service with you . You will always be in our hearts and we shall remember the good times we shared together – way back to when you lived with Mom and Dad.

Rest in peace dear cousin – we shall never forget you.
Love always,

To the Long family,

Steve, Anna and I would like to express our love for you all and our deep sorrow for your loss. I will always remember how wonderful it was to visit Marilyn’s – she was truly a mother to all (and of course provider of those famous latkes!). We love you all and are thinking of you in this most difficult of times. With love and prayers, Tanja, Steve and Anna Hoffmann-Horvath

From: Blair Borgerson
Relation: Cousin

I wanted to extend my condolences to the children and grandchildren of my cousin Marilyn. The last time I met many of you would have been at the home of your Moir grandparents. The children then would probably be younger than the grandchildren are now! If one of you were to provide a contact address I would be glad to forward photos of your Mom and family that I find as I edit my own parents collection.
