Marilyn loved everyone and was very devoted to family and friends including keeping up with all their lives. She loved to bake including Pineapple Upside Down cakes with Maraschino Cherries and her irresistible Monkey Bread. She loved to garden, clean her house, crossword puzzles, visiting with friends and chatting on the phone. She also loved to be silly, was a great hostess, enjoyed singing, music with a good beat, was the 1st one up and the last to go to sleep. But most important, she was a very loving, caring and gracious person.

In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made to:
