It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marilynn Jenness Kofluk on June 10, 2021 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. She was 78 years of age.
Marilynn was born in Edmonton, AB on June 18, 1942. She was raised to cherish family and with a strong faith in her Lord, Jesus Christ. Throughout her entire life, she never wavered in her dedication to either. On May 18, 1963, Marilynn married the love of life, Paul Kofluk. The happy couple went on to be blessed with a beautiful family and countless wonderful memories over their fifty-eight-year marriage. In 2009, Marilynn and Paul relocated from Golden, BC to the Crowsnest Pass, AB where they soon became integral members of their community.
Marilynn was an active person who had many interest and hobbies. She enjoyed reading, bird watching, dancing and playing golf. Her commitment to serving others was well demonstrated by her involvement with The Rebekahs (Independent Order of Odd Fellows). The only thing that compared to Marilynn’s devotion to Jesus Christ was her devotion to her family. She never missed an opportunity to spend time with them and she treasured every moment. May we take comfort in precious memories and in the knowledge that she is now home with the Lord.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths” (Proverbs 3: 5-6).
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life is her husband, Paul Kofluk of Coleman, AB; her sons, Mark (Jen) Kofluk and Matthew Kofluk; her daughter, Jenness (Dave) Shortreed; her grandchildren, Teslan, Derek, Connor, Aden, Tianna, Kloe, Cierra, Kennedy (Jeff), David (Maddison) and Trenan; her great-grandchildren, Beau, Saylor and Jude; her brother, Bud (Penny) Cartwright; her sister, Anne Alfano; as well as her extended family and many friends.
