Marilyn was such a special and giving person. I had the opportunity to get to know her while she was at home and I was her nurse. We shared many laughs together and she was one of my favorite patients. She will be sadly missed by many, rest in peace!!!

So sorry boys for the loss of you mother. I had the privilege of being a co-worker with your mom in the O-E school district for several years. The kids loved her and she was wonderful with them. I'll always remember her as a strong and loving person. God Bless
