Anita Susan Marsden of Thedford passed away at London Health Science Centre, Victoria Hospital on Thursday, March 4, 2021, at the age of 72.
The wife and best friend of Mark Marsden, together Anita and Mark raised their family of Carey (Kevin) Wright, Adam (Sherry Walterhouse) Marsden, and is predeceased by her son David (1991). Anita leaves a beautiful legacy in her grandchildren Sarah, Nicholas, and Jacob, and will be missed by Charlie, Anita's obedient four-legged buddy.
Loved by her siblings, Peggy Martin and Danny Hamilton, Anita will be missed by her extended family, friends, and church family.
After a grade school crush, Anita and Mark found their way back to each other in their early 20's, celebrating their wedding on Christmas Eve in Las Vegas, returning home with $1 to their name to live on love for the next number of years.
Anita brought music into the home, making every effort to teach her husband and children to sing and play guitar to no avail. A woman with an incredible alto voice, Anita's voice was cherished almost as much as the caring and kind woman that she was. Family trips, roller coaster rides, camping trips with the Volkswagon van are all very special memories for the family.
Anita's family would like to thank the incredible staff at London Health Science Centre and the Princess Margaret hospital for their genuine compassion and care.
A service will take place at the Church of God, Gill Road, Grand Bend on Sunday, March 7, 2021, at 11am with Pastor Frank Struth officiating. Donations are appreciated to the Cancer Clinics at London Health Science Centre or the Princess Margaret Hospital.
Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest. 519-786-4964. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
