Marilyn Losik, nee Smithson, passed away peacefully in her home on March 21, losing her battle with sarcoma cancer, at age 69.

She is survived by Dennis, her loving husband of 38 years, her son Rob and his wife BreAnne, and their two beautiful children Edie and Eli, her brother Bill Smithson and his wife Jeri, as well as a number of nieces, nephews and cousins.

She loved to travel abroad, but also enjoyed long drives to small hamlets across the country. She was also a voracious reader, and enjoyed playing the piano. And she was also a dear friend of many who appreciated her quick wit, her sense of humor, her willingness to listen and sometimes advise.
