Marilyn was a devoted mother, to her loving children, a fully committed grandmother, sister, Family jewel, and dear friend. Her motherly love extended beyond the four walls of her Family, which cascaded to various entities outside the immediate Family. Her love, dedication and devotion touched many hearts, and her compassion impacted every child, in her life! Marilyn’s God-given talents will be a long-lasting legacy, she embraced the world with her unique sense of humor and candid comments.

Marilyn will leave us but, she will never be forgotten! To those who knew her, continue to cherish the heart-felt memories and her beautiful smile; to those who did not, you missed a jewel!
