Dearly loved and missed by her Cranbrook family, Judy, Erin, Michael and Shauna (Sarah and Taylor), Patrick and Angela (Natalia and Tyson) and Jeremy Vaughan. She will also be missed by Charlsie Wilson, Joan Edwards, her many friends and Kian.

Marilee taught for many years, starting and ending her career at Muriel Baxter School. She taught all of the primary grades (Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2). She so loved teaching at Muriel Baxter School that she really couldn’t see herself teaching anywhere else and as a result, retired in 2002 when the school was closed.

On January 3, 2014, her mansion was finished, and the Lord took her home to be with Him.

Funeral service will be held at First Baptist Church on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 3:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Friends of Children, Cranbrook, B.C. The link to their website is
