Marilyn had a deep love of knowledge, history, genealogy, knitting and music. Each day was filled with song and a sense of humor that ran deep in her soul. Marilyn is remembered for her wit and always bringing a smile and laughs to everyone in her path.
She was a true original and will be sorely missed!
