Chisholm, Marilyn Patricia

January 21, 1951 to June 11, 2021

It is with sadness that we announce Marilyn Chisholm passed away at Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson, British Columbia, at the age of 70. She grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick, and lived there until she moved to British Columbia in 2003. Marilyn had a long career as an accountant, working in Nelson for Ratcliffe & Bateson, Comishin & Astle, Maglio Building Supplies, and most recently Berg Lehmann (now Grant Thornton) until her recent retirement.

She is survived by her son, Matthew Cunningham; her daughter, Tara Cunningham (Mike Moor) of Nelson, BC; her granddaughter, Nieva Cunningham; and her sisters, Joan Neal of Toronto and Jacquie Trask (Mark Trask) of Saint John, NB. Interment and a celebration of life will take place in Saint John at a later date.

Donations in memory of Marilyn may be made to Freedom’s Gate Equine Rescue Society (freedomsgateequinerescue.com/donate).
