    My husband and I worked with Marilynn while she was with Sabre. It wasn’t for a very long time (less than a year in each case), but that was more than enough to show her joy, grace and generosity of spirit. Even thousands of kilometres away, and only by voice, her steadfastness and helpfulness were obvious. Marilynn and I used to snatch time here and there to catch up on personal news, in between business, and I will sorely miss her humour and support.
    Our prayers are with her and her family. She will always be remembered.

  2. Rosita Legan and Family

    Marilynn was one of the first people I worked with at Sabre. From the first day to the last, she was always kind to me and others, showing that kindness always with the sweetest voice. Her friendship stood the test of time whenever I saw her in the office – always kind, always caring.

    Our prayers are with her daughter and family that the God of all comfort will be with you today and in the days to come.
