Marilyn was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, who always cherished time with her family. Her family gave her the greatest joy. She also enjoyed playing poker with her close group of friends, and she truly loved traveling, especially her annual "sister trips." She will always be remembered for her love of family, her kindness, and her generosity. Her absence in the lives of her family will be deeply felt. We, as a family, hope our lives always reflect the honesty and decency she lived her life by. She truly blessed each of out lives.
