Marilyn lived with her parents and worked as a secretary. She and her husband have five children. Marilyn, was a loving wife and devoted mother. She stayed home and cared for her children until they entered school. At that time, she went to work at TSTC for 14 years serving in various positions including that of Admission Officer. Her husband was employed with the Chevrolet Motor Division, which required their family to frequently relocate. Marilyn, never complained about having to move their family across the country. She never complained about her husband having to travel during the week and having the added responsibility of managing their home affairs and caring for their five children. She was a special lady who always put the needs of her family before her own. She is remembered by her family as a person of quiet strength and unlimited devotion to her family. Marilyn, treasured the visits and time spent with her grandchildren, she enjoyed her quiet times too, which were reserved for reading novels written by her favorite authors and working crossword puzzles. Her family who loved her and shared in her life will miss her dearly but find comfort she is rejoicing with her God in Heaven. Our family wishes to thank the professional people of Scott and White Hospice, for always being there when Marilyn needed them.
