Nothing would light up Marilyn’s face more than the smiles of her grandbabies. She had a great appreciation of music, and her beautiful soprano voice will be greatly missed. Marilyn tried kayaking for the first time in her seventies and at the age of 80 she out-danced everyone else at her granddaughter’s wedding. Those closest to Marilyn will remember her delicious homemade pies and Thanksgiving dressing. Marilyn was a fervent believer in the power of prayer and could be counted on to pray for any family member or friend in need.
