WINTER, Marilyn Ruth (nee Mason) - It is with sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of Marilyn, in her 90th year.
Marilyn was a loving mother to Doug and his wife Diane, Ted and his wife Jenny.
Cherished grandmother to Jessica and Evan. Marilyn is pre-deceased by her sister Barbara Braid and her brother Robert Mason. Family was everything to Marilyn and her true joy was time spent with her family sharing stories and researching her family history.
Marilyn graduated as a Registered Nurse from Wellesley Hospital in 1950 and was a proud member of the “Nifty Fifties” alumni group forming lifelong friendships with her classmates. After working for several years in New Jersey, Marilyn returned to school at University of Western Ontario to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Marilyn had a long, successful career at Wellesley Hospital in Toronto with over 20 years in the Rehabilitation Clinic.

Marilyn will be sadly missed by her friends and family.
