Aunt Marilyn was so awesome! One of the warmest people I have ever known. There are so many fond memories of her growing up. She was such a caring and compassionate soul. She was always kind to my mom and I will forever be grateful to her for that. She was funny! She could take a joke and had a great laugh. Just a beautiful human being. She was well-loved and will be sorely missed.

Marilyn taught me the real meaning of prayer around her wonderful old dining room table, along with her Prayer Group. And through that experience a son was prayed home. Forever grateful---Mary Dangler--mother of Blake

As a young boy attending the Pleasant Lake Baptist church, I remember Marilyn always sitting behind us. She was a constant in my religious values and Jim and myself became good friends. My mother and Marilyn also became friends. She will be missed, my deep sympathy to Jim and Bill and the rest of the kids

Aunt Marilyn, every time I think of her I smile. She had a way of making everyone feel welcomed, loved, comfortable and worthy. She never judged and was always glad to see you. I have some of my fondest memories from being at the farm during our family reunions. She did not know it but I would walk out to where she was sitting, around a beautiful tree, with all the family around, and wait for a seat to be free right beside her. I loved our talks. She was my mothers best friend and, she may not have known it, but also her savior. I love ,respect and admire you Aunt Marilyn. I will miss you always.
