March 30, 1934 - March 26, 2023
In Loving Memory ~
The family of Merilyn Coney is saddened to announce her passing on Sunday, March 26, 2023, just 4 days short of her 89th birthday.
Predeceased by her husband Dale in 2002, she leaves behind her 3 children Kathleen Hamel (Willie), Diane Young (Dennis), and John Coney (Tracy).
She also leaves 6 grandchildren: Claire, Brant, Alexandra, Matthew, Taryn, and Brett, plus great-grandson Hayes Coney. She loved spending time with her family, and we will all miss her greatly.
Born and raised in Alberni to Charles & Norah Galliford, she spent her formative years living at Great Central Lake where a vibrant community thrived and lived most of her life with Dale raising her family in Cherry Creek in a house that Dale built.
She also leaves her sisters Barbara Durante of Meridian, Idaho, and Wendy Galliford of Victoria.
Sadly, predeceased by her sister Carol Pennington of Victoria in 1997. Also survived by brother-in-law Ted Coney & his wife Iris of Port Alberni, plus 6 nieces & 3 nephews.
Many thanks for the kindness & care provided to Mom by the staff at Echo Village.
