Romick, Marilyn Diana

It is with great sadness and much love that we announce the peaceful passing of Marilyn Romick at age 78 on August 1st, 2021. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.

Marilyn will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Lisa (Emanuel), her son Vince, two grandchildren: Sydney and Vaiden, her sisters Joyce Hughes, Brenda Seerattan, her brothers John Stamp (Helen), Tom Stamp (Sonja), Rob Stamp (Tammy), and many friends. Marilyn was predeceased by her husband Victor, sister Janet Carson, and her parents Janet and Tom Stamp.

Marilyn grew up in Crossfield, Alberta with six siblings (3 girls and 3 boys), whom she loved deeply. Throughout her life, Marilyn had a deep passion for figure skating. She went from training to competing, to ultimately instructing; having taught many throughout her career. In July of 1964, she married her late husband, Victor, later moving to Sherwood Park, Alberta where they settled and raised two children. Marilyn took great pride in working at the Bank of Nova Scotia for 20 years and then at London Drugs for 18 years. Marilyn loved to camp with her friends and family, entertain for others, and go out dancing. In her older years, she loved to scrapbook, spend time with her loved ones, have coffee dates with her friends, and lastly spend a lot of her time going on shopping sprees, which she passed onto to her granddaughter!

Marilyn was a tough woman and showed immense strength as she battled cancer for many years. This strength and endurance will always be remembered and inspire others. She will be deeply missed by all her family and friends, but we will treasure and look back on all the amazing memories we have with her.

A celebration of Marilyn’s life will be held at the Sherwood Park Log Cabin (50 Spruce Ave, Sherwood Park) on August 16th at 1 pm.

The family would like to extend our gratefulness to the doctors, nurses, and staff for their excellent compassion and care at the Rivercrest Care Centre in Fort Saskatchewan.

Dear Vince and Lisa
I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. I don’t know if you remember me but I met your mom and dad through your Aunt Margaret Procter. I remember your attractive mom, always impeccably dressed and perfect hair. We lost touch but I do remember the times Lorne and I visited your mom and dad at their house. Lovely couple. Rest In Peace Marilyn.
Kind regards
Marianne Sorochan

Many years ago I babysat for Marilyn.
I remember her as a very kind and generous person who loved her children Lisa and Vince immensely.
She was a hard working mom who wanted the best for her kids. Years later I ran into her working at London Drugs.it was so nice to see her and hear her talk about her family .
I am very sorry for your loss Lisa and Vince, she was a wonderful lady.

Marilyn was the oldest out of the kids and never let us forget it. In our later years I would let her know that she may be older, but I will always be younger. It wasn’t long after that she stopped bragging about being older..

No matter where she went, she never left the house without looking her best. Even hauling water. It took awhile before I figured out why she wasn’t making me do it and her hauling the water on her own. It was all about the boy, that’s where she met her future husband Vic.

I enjoyed our sisterly talks that were done at night for many years. In fact we were able to talk each other to sleep.

In life, we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.

In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.

With all my love Joyce

Marilyn will be missed by myself and family Despite being so ill, we all had a chance to be with her two years ago at a family anniversary. My last great memory of Marilyn is Ric, who is usually adverse to dancing had such a nice time taking Marilyn for a dance there. We took credit for Victor and Marilyn meeting as Marilyn was our babysitter in Crossfield when we lived there and Vic came to live with us. Oh, Marilyn, I miss you.

There are so many memories about Aunty Marilyn. Going from weekend sleep overs, and family camping trips to family get togethers as the years went by..

Throughout the years she has shown us her humor, naivety and her strength.

I enjoyed the time we spent together and will treasure my memories that I have.

Love you and will miss you dearly.. ♥️
