With great sadness the family of Marlynne Smiley announces her passing at Bluewater Health, Sarnia at the age of 71. Loving and cherished mother of Donny (Shelly) Plumb of Lucan and Tammy (Chris) Vince of Bothwell. Proud nana of Matt, Nicholas, Matthew and Emma. Survived by her siblings Nancy (Everett) Lyons, Pat (Lorne) Parkin, Darrell Smiley and Kim (the late Jim) Hawley. Predeceased by her parents George and Madge Smiley. Marlynne was a school bus driver for over 30 years in Lambton and Middlesex counties and enjoyed the many children that boarded her school bus daily. She was also an avid member of Living Hope Fellowship and loved providing a helping hand where needed. The family would like to thank Dr. Buma, Dr. Kim, Joanne and the palliative care nurses at Bluewater Health and Pastor John for their exceptional care and support. In keeping with Marlynne’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a graveside service will be held at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association or St. Joseph’s Hospice, Sarnia would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to DENNING’S OF WATFORD.
