Marilyn Armitage Memorial Fund

Marilyn Armitage passed away in 1996, but her memory lives on through the Marilyn Armitage Memorial Fund, which was recently placed with Saskatoon Community Foundation.  Raised in Saskatoon, Marilyn lived in Ontario and Texas before returning to the city with husband George and son Bret in 1968; daughter Joelle was born here n 1970.  She worked as a medical records librarian, publications editor and news director at several places before becoming director of public relations at Saskatoon City Hospital and then communications co-ordinator with Saskatoon District Health.  Despite living with scleroderma for many years, Marilyn was dedicated and tireless in her service to the community.  She sat on the boards of the YWCA, Big Sisters and 25th Street Theatre and on the marketing committees of the Jazz Festival and Saskatoon United Way.  She was instrumental in helping establish Saskatoon City Hospital’s Festival of Trees as a major fundraising event, and in the successful campaign to fund the Cameco MS Neuroscience Research Center.  The Marilyn Armitage Memorial Fund honours her humanitarian spirit by supporting programs and services in the fields of communications and health care.
