Marilyn Louise (Bristol) McWhinney, age 70 of Middleville, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday January 27, 2021.

She was born to Lyle and Katey (Saunders) Bristol on August 22, 1950 in Hastings, Michigan. Marilyn graduated from Hastings High School in 1968. After high school, she married the love of her life, Bruce. They enjoyed 48 years of marriage.

Throughout the years, Marilyn held several positions at Hastings Manufacturing, Caledonia D&W and Foremost Insurance where she made many lifelong friendships. The job that Marilyn loved the most was being a wife and mother to her two daughters Katie and Janine. Later in life, she was overjoyed to become a grandmother to her five grandchildren.

Marilyn enjoyed spending time with family and friends and always appreciated visitors stopping by. Her hobbies included cooking, baking, stopping at garage sales, coloring books, attending activities & service at the Middleville United Methodist Church. Her most cherished times were the 50 plus years spent at “Heaven on Earth” Horseshoe Lake, where it seemed every Sunday was a family reunion. Marilyn was a lover of all people and always welcomed anyone with open arms, a big smile and a twinkle in her eye.

Marilyn is preceded in death by her parents, her in-laws Gordon and Lois McWhinney, her brothers-in-law Chuck Meier, Frosty Bromley, Sam Shriver and Russell McWhinney and sisters-in-law Jennifer McWhinney, Judy McWhinney & Suzanne Verburg.

Marilyn is survived by her husband Bruce, daughters Katie (Brad) Peter and Janine (Adam) Smith, grandchildren Alex, Blake & Camden Peter and Gabby & Jack Smith, sisters Dee (Erv) Gaskill, Sharon Bromley, Linda Bristol, Barbara (Al) Palmer, brothers-in-law Jerry (Elaine) McWhinney, Marv (Patti) McWhinney, Richard Verburg and sister-in-law Cheryl McWhinney, several special nieces, nephews and close friends.

Caring for others was Marilyn’s passion. Therefore in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Middleville United Methodist Church Food Pantry.

The family would like to thank Dr. Anita Asadorian, care manager Cori Leak and staff at Hastings Internal and Family Medicine for the wonderful care that was provided to Marilyn.

A visitation will be held at the Beeler-Gores Funeral Home in Middleville, MI on Sunday, January 31, 2021 from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Covid restrictions will be in effect. Per Marilyn's wishes, a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Please visit to share a memory or leave a condolence message for Marilyn’s family.
