McFARLANE, Marilyn M. – Doaktown, NB

Marilyn Margaret McFarlane, age 77, resident of Doaktown, NB, passed away on December 27, 2019. Marilyn was born on November 1, 1942, in Halifax, NS to Elsie Milton and Robert McFarlane. On November 21, 1959 at the young age of 17, she married Alexander (Alistair) Jack with whom she raised six children.

She loved swimming and enjoyed building a life at Kervin’s Hollow with Basil in Cains River. Yellow was her favourite colour.

She will be greatly missed.
