EIDENS- GARCÍA, Marlies
Passed away this May 5th 2008 at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto, after a long illness, surrounded by her beloved family: Fernando, Gisela and Rudi. Marlies retired in the year 2000 after 26 years involvement in the Toronto District School Board: first volunteering, then as a part-time Teacher of English as a Second Language, later followed by ten years of intensive full-time engagement at the Mimico Adult Centre. She was very proud of her commitment and achievements in teaching English to new Canadians and assisting them with counseling and guidance towards employment. She arrived from Chile with her husband and children in 1974 after living there for ten years. Marlies belonged to a generation of European youth who, in the sixties, heard the call of John XXIII to become involved helping developing countries. She joined a team of Belgian community workers who travelled to Chile. With her gift for languages, Marlies spoke French, Spanish and English fluently, in addition to her native German. Always a natural leader, she enjoyed life and socializing with people. She loved her family and Friends. She will be missed by many -- from Canada, Chile and Germany. Marlies was 72 years old. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor St. W., at Windermere Ave., east of Jane subway, from 2-4 and 7-9 on Friday.
