Sympathy is extended to the family of Marilyn Boehlke who passed away on Oct. 13 in Hanna at the age of 80 years. Marilyn was a long-time resident of the Endiang community and was the eldest of two daughters born to Alec and Anne Smith. Marilyn married Gordon Boehlke and they raised a family of four children – Dave, Mike, Lorri and Rob. Marilyn was artistically talented and especially enjoyed sewing and quilting. Marilyn worked in sewing shops in Stettler and Hanna and also owned her own sewing shop in Hanna. Following Gordon’s death in 2004, Marilyn remained at Endiang for five years before retiring to Hanna.

Our thoughts are with Marilyn’s family in their sad loss — her sister Linda Connors, children – Dave (Sheila) Boehlke, Mike (Sharie) Boehlke, Lorri (Don) McLeod and Rob (Rainey) Boeklke and their families.

A Come and Go Memorial luncheon for Marilyn will be held on Saturday, Oct. 21 at 2 p.m. at the Endiang Community Hall.
