Mom, Gram, Friend to all,

Marilyn was loved and will be missed by all who knew her. Her warm smile and infinite wisdom will be a cherished memory to hold until we meet again in Heaven. In lieu of flowers, please donate a bag of food or funds to your local animal shelter. This will allow others the opportunity to find a furever friend as Max and Marilyn had found in Addie.


I thought that I would miss you so, and never find my way. And then I heard the angel say ‘She’s with you every day.’ The sun, the moon, the wind, the stars, will forever be around, reminding you of the love you shared, and the peace she’s finally found.  - Author Unknown
