Marilyn Elizabeth White has been given the opportunity to embark on her final traveling adventure.
Marilyn lived her life to the fullest. She was strong-willed and knew how to get her way. She never wanted to burden anyone with her own problems but was always available to help her friends in any way she could. Marilyn’s pastimes evolved around the next time she could travel the world. She worked to travel and she loved helping others dreams of exploring come true. In fact, she won an award to being the longest working travel agent in the business at over 40 years!
Marilyn passed away peacefully in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, July 25th after her battle with cancer. She is survived by her mother, Helen Foster; son, Austin White; siblings, Greg White, Marlene White, Brenda Peters, Moyra White and Wade Foster; and countless nieces and nephews.
A short graveside service will be held on Friday, July 29th at 1:00pm at Woodlawn Cemetery, 1502 2nd Avenue N. Please meet at the main gates at 12:45 to proceed to the site.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to local cancer research.

My deepest sympathy to the family.
So sorry to hear of Marilyn’s passing, many fond memories of our trips and all the fun we had! We will all miss her so much, she was always so kind and helpful! My heart is heavy!
Auntie Lynn was there for me all through my life whenever I needed her. I would stop by the travel agency to say hi whenever I was near there. I remember when I was around 9 years old she told me to call her whenever I needed her. Although, there are no phones in heaven. I will always love you and cherish all the memories that we shared. 💕
Marilyn was such a giving lady. She was an amazing travel agent and a faithful coworker. I hold many fond memories of our time together at Watrous Travel. Our heartfelt condolences to Austin and Marilyn’s family.
So very sorry to hear of Marilyn’s passing, my deepest sympathy to all the family
Marilyn was a wonderful and caring person. Her knowledge of travel was truly a blessing for us in our travel business. The minute she walked in the door we knew we had a winner! Our deepest sympathy to Austin, Helen and to all of her family. Sincerely, Allan and Diane
