ENS, MarilynPosted: January 30th, 2021
November 27, 1932 – January 20, 2021
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Marilyn Ens in Edmonton after a short hospital stay. Marilyn will be deeply missed and cherished in memory by her loving husband Jacob Ens; daughters Barbara (Glen) Buchner and Christine Ens (Marvin Severson); grandchildren Andrew, Amanda, Ben (Shellie) and Emily; dear sister Janet Maryam Fisher, and brother Brian Holland. She was predeceased by her parents, Dean and Hazel Holland, and brothers Robert and Gordon Holland. Born and raised in southern Alberta, Marilyn was a proud graduate of the Galt School of Nursing, Lethbridge. She married Jake in 1956 and apart from a decade in Calgary, they raised their family in Edmonton. Marilyn enjoyed family gatherings, bridge parties with friends, sewing, volunteering at the Cross Cancer Institute, attending Edmonton Symphony concerts, and cheering on the Oilers. She and Jake loved taking cruises and escaping in the winter to Maui or Palm Springs. In summer, Waterton Lakes held a special place in her heart. In keeping with Marilyn’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no service is planned at this time. If desired, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and NWT. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at MacTaggart Place for their care and compassion over the last two years.
