Tribute paid to kind-hearted Councillor Marilyn Greenwood



Cllr Marilyn Greenwood was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and daughter. A person who cared so much about her family, a dedicated Councillor to her constituents and a pillar of the community. It is with great sadness that we announce her passing.

She fought hard for what she believed was right and during her time representing Greetland and Stainland Ward for the Liberal Democrats from 2014-2021.

During her term of office she represented resident’s interests on campaigns to improve children’s dentistry, to improve the local plan and adult health issues. Marilyn was passionate about trying to improve the health and lives of others.

During her final months serving as a Councillor during the pandemic Marilyn thought of others first. Working to set up a volunteer network to help vulnerable local residents she represented.

A remarkable woman with many talents, a singer, a marathon running and recently and author of a  book titled The Whistler: A Harrowing True Story. Marilyn will be missed by many but remembered by more.
