Meet Marny Williams:
In 2002, after a short six week battle with cancer, Marny’s husband Keith died. She became a widow at the age of 30 and the only parent to two children, a son 3 years and a daughter 3 months old. In the years that passed Marny aspired to support others in their grief and has achieved education in this topic. She is a Certified Thanatologist, holds a certificate in Grief & Bereavement from Western University and a Certificate in Children’s grief. She has been supporting grieving people for 18 years through a variety of organizations.
In 2011, Marny co-founded a new, non-profit organization – The Hummingbird Centre for Hope. Their mission is to provide continuing support to bereaved spouses who are caring for their young families. Marny has a passion for hope and nurturing hope in others.
