Born September 13, 1953, Marilyn passed peacefully at her residence in Grand Bend, with family, Russ, the love of her life, and dear friends at her side, on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, following a courageous battle with cancer. Beloved companion of Russ Campeau of Windsor. Dear sister of Paul, Cheryl, Barbara, Lisa (Dr. Geoff Anderson) and survived by many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her parents the late Arthur and Barbara (Hems) Priest.
She will be missed by lifelong friends whom she supported and was supported by, throughout her years growing up in Windsor and during her many years in Grand Bend after her love of nature and water prompted her to move there, when the opportunity presented itself. Marilyn was respected and admired by her loyal clients at Accents Hair & Gift Studio for 23 years and appreciated by the Grand Bend Community for her commitment in supporting local business, charitable and cultural events. Her vibrant personality, positive attitude and genuine kindness always made a significant contribution. She was also an avid member of the Runners Club and enjoyed marathons. Marilyn will be fondly remembered by Russ’s extended family.
