Marilyn Farnworth

Retired teacher proud of Lancer heritage

Marilyn Farnworth (née Morris) counts a meeting with then-Detroit Piston—now Detroit mayor—Dave Bing and an on-campus concert by Ike and Tina Turner among some of her fondest memories of her time at the University of Windsor, but it was the camaraderie among students and faculty support she says best marked her student experience.

Farnworth, who attended UWindsor from 1972 to 1976 as a kinesiology and math student and later a teacher candidate, came home to Windsor following a year at the University of Western Ontario, seeking smaller class sizes and a “personalized atmosphere.”
