Marilyn started her career in 1974 at the CIBC Pangman Branch as Administrator and Branch Manager. In 1994 the CIBC left the community of Pangman.

Marilyn plans on spending each day with family and friends in the Pangman and surrounding area.

After 37 combined years in the workforce, the Board and Staff of the Radius Credit Union want to wish Marilyn the best in all her future endeavours.
