With broken hearts we announce the passing of Marilyn Ann Roberton ‘Granny’ on September 05, 2016. With humble prayers we rejoice that Marilyn has gone home to her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Marilyn was born and raised in her family’s Calgary home. With Christ as her Saviour her calling was such a blessing to others as she traveled to Haiti and Indonesia to help rebuild after hurricanes and tsunamis and she also traveled to Uganda to help install solar panels and well pumps in Watoto Children Homes. Marilyn honoured and loved her precious grandchildren and she shone like the North Star when they called to her, Granny! She continued to travel throughout North America sharing in the Lords grace. She is dearly remembered by her friends Bob and Lena Arkell. Marilyn was also nanny to their daughter Meghan where their special bond will always be held in her heart and their memories. Marilyn went (home) living her truth and for this we are grateful. Being with Marilyn was always reassuring as (she said what she meant and meant what she said)! As a childhood friend said just last night (and she could always back it up)! I always felt safe with her. And ever if there were amends to made, given or received, she did so graciously with unconditional love, and received in kind. Marilyn, like all her siblings, were guided in truth by our Mother. We had our family dynamics, but as guests would arrive, the coffee would perk, dinner would be cooking but there were always good manners when a guest would enter. Marilyn is survived by her loving daughter Charlotte Ann (Manser) Mitchell and son-in-law Lawrence; her grandchildren Samuel and Dakota-Leigh, her loving mother, Marlene Lillian (Shank) Roberton; brother David; sisters Linda and Gail; sister-in-law Karen Brow and family; nephews Glenn Kelly (Angela) and Jonathan Robert; nieces Michelle Lynn (Dallas) and Jamie Anne (Warren), nieces (great) Jade, Courtney, Katelyn, and Zyxa Rose; nephews (great) Trevor, Brandon, Xavier and John. Her constant friend and companion while visiting Mom was her little (Teddy Roo). Teddy would not leave Marilyn’s side while she visited and they liked it that way. Marilyn grooming Teddy and Teddy snuggling Marilyn. Marilyn was predeceased by her father John Robert (Robbie) Roberton; brothers Robbie Jr. and Leighton John; sister, Laura Jean. Family dynamics as we know can be challenging at best, but there was always one constant and cause for excitement when announced, Miss Marilyn is on her way home! By motorbike, truck or some other fascinating mode of transportation in she would roll and then she would be off again, guided by the Lord and loving every moment. Today Marilyn Ann boarded the most profound mode of transportation for today as Jesus gathered her in his arms he said “my little Authentic Angel it is time to come home!” One more Authentic Angel who would, like her brothers and sisters, turn her tiny little back to you and say, here scratch my wings wouldcha! With an ohh and an ahh, and a thanks off she went with her wings on her back. A celebration of life will be held at Pierson’s Funeral Home 4121 17 Avenue SE, Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 1:00pm with reception to follow in Pierson’s Reception Room.
