Obituary of Marilyn Louise Zold

June 8, 1938 - Calgary, Alberta

February 4, 2024 - Calgary, Alberta


Marilyn Zold (nee Holmes), passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 4, 2024, in Calgary, AB.


Marilyn was born at the Holy Cross Hospital on June 8, 1938, to George and Edna (nee Bowen) Holmes, in Calgary, AB. She married Stanley Zold in 1965 and together they had two children, Debbie and Karen.


Marilyn followed in her father’s footsteps and began working at the Bank of Montreal up until she stepped away to start a family, returning to the bank in 1983 until her retirement in 1993.


Marilyn had many interests, including softball in her younger years, and was also an accomplished bowler, winning many trophies as a single, doubles, and team bowler. She loved to cross stitch and knit, share in a game of cards, or quietly work on her word search books.


Marilyn is survived by her daughter Debbie and son-in-law Greg Ecker of Calgary, AB; daughter Karen Zold of New Westminster, BC; her three grandsons; Brendan, Spencer, and Tyler Ecker, all of Calgary, AB.


Marilyn is also survived by her brother Brian (Rosalie) Holmes of Calgary, AB, sister-in-law Jean Gaede of Drumheller, AB, special cousin Lois Zedde of Calgary, AB, and numerous nieces and nephews.


She was predeceased by her husband of 49 years, Stanley Zold, parents George and Edna Holmes, sisters-in-law, Daisy, Dorothy, Della, Josie, and Gloria; and brother-in-law, Joe Zold.


The family would like to express thanks to mom’s longtime friend Barb Cadman for being there for mom, especially when her health started to decline.


We would also like to thank Dr. Leonard for being such a kind and thoughtful voice when we needed it the most. We’d also like to thank the staff at Scenic Acres Retirement for all the service and care they provided to mom over her short stay.


At Marilyn’s request, no funeral service is to be held.
