Obituary for Marilyn Ellen Mihalcin

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Marilyn (Sally) Ellen Mihalcin on September 1, 2019, at the age of 75 years. Marilyn was born in Frankslake, Saskatchewan on May 9, 1944, to Henry and Melba Silzer, and shortly thereafter moved to Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan where her family set down roots on their new farm.

After high school, Marilyn came to Thunder Bay to visit a family friend. It is here where she met her future husband, Frank and raised her two sons, Allan and Tod.

During their early years together, Marilyn helped her husband with the family business known as “Twin City Refreshments”. She brought a prettier, softer side to the company throughout the years until her husband’s retirement. Marilyn was also the neighborhood “Mom”, always taking her sons and their friends to different events and activities. She had a zest for life and learning. She taught herself to play piano and enjoyed playing whenever the opportunity arose. She loved to read and garden. She could be seen quite often planting and pruning her flower gardens.

Marilyn was a gracious host and excellent cook. She loved to entertain and spent many a time entertaining family and friends at her home and camp at Eldorado Beach. She was very close to her family and friends out West and made sure her Thunder Bay family knew her Saskatchewan family. Marilyn’s Thunder Bay family grew when she welcomed her two-lovely daughter-in-laws, and four beautiful grandchildren into her life. Her family was everything to her.

Marilyn will be sadly missed by her sons Allan (Lisa) and Tod (Jen), her grandchildren Emily, Keenan, Addison and Logan, her sisters Lorraine Priddell and Janice Dickie, her sister-in-law Mary Sopuch, her sister-in-law Margret Mihalcin, her nieces and nephews, her great nieces and nephews and her lifelong friends that meant so much to her. Marilyn was predeceased by her husband Frank, her parents Henry and Melba Silzer, her brother David Silzer, her sister-in-law Helen Silzer, her brother-in-law Ken Priddell, her nephew Glen Priddell, her brother-in-law John Sopuch and her brother-in-law Michal Mihalcin.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to all the staff at Roseview Manor for their outstanding care and compassion for Marilyn over the years. The family would also like to thank the many friends that visited and supported Marilyn during her time at Roseview.

Sally was my friend.
She liked to tell a story that, when I was a little boy and moved in across the street with my family, on the first day we meet she taught me a few english words and created space for me to play with her boys. She made a lot of space for all the kids on the block, she opened her doors and became a community Mom. She drove us in her T-Bird, supervised us on the beach and feed us before we knew we were hungry. Eventually she served me tea at her kitchen table when I was a young man in university.
Sally was my friend.
