1946 - 2018

72, Spryfield, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Wednesday, December 5th, 2018. Born May 20, 1946 in Halifax, she was the daughter of the late Nellie Blanchard.

Marilyn was loved by all the people whose hearts she touched and showed compassion to. She lived a life of standing up and speaking for the people who did not have a voice. Pouring her unending love and offering her endless wisdom to all her dear friends and family, who could always count on her shoulder of strength and an ear of understanding.

Marilyn will be missed by so many but will be deeply missed by her husband, Kirk Costello and children, Bernadette (Andrew) and Wayne; many cousins locally and back In Newfoundland. Nanny’s memory will be treasured by her grand children, Jacob, Allison, Meghan and Mason (Mother Anna Jean). Sadly, she leaves behind her extended family of children who she cherished like her own, niece, Shelia who tirelessly sat by her side in the hospital; nephews, Patrick and Joseph; great nephew, Kyle and great niece, Stephanie.

The family would like to thank all of the Doctors and nurses on 8.2 at the QEII Halifax Infirmary for the compassion given to Marilyn while in their care.
