Longstanding friend of MPN Voice and dedicated volunteer.
With the permission of her husband Paul, MPN Voice is very sad to share the news that Marilyn passed away May 18th 2023.
Marilyn has been part of the MPN community for many years, volunteering to co-ordinate and lead countless fundraising activities to support the financial needs of MPN Voice. Marilyn also helped in many other ways, as a buddy, helping at in-person forums and offering administration support when required.
Her inspiration, energy and passion for MPN Voice and the fundraising she spent so many years dedicated to will be missed immensely.
Members of the MPN Voice steering committee shared various thoughts about Marilyn remembering her passion to encourage others to support MPN Voice, her wonderful aura, kind, gentle, bubbly, caring personality and her dedication to her family. Marilyn was always smiling, and always positive that as a community, we could work together to find better ways to manage and support MPN patients.
Debbie Street who took over from Marilyn as fundraising co-ordinator said ‘she was an amazing person who brought so much to our team, MPN Voice and the MPN Voice community and will be remembered with love for everything she did’.
The family have set up a website with all the details of the funeral including details for virtual access for anyone who can’t attend and would have wished to or who wants to view it after the service. There is also an opportunity to leave/share any personal comments about Marilyn for the family.

With love and fond memories from us all at MPN Voice.
