Marilyn dedicated her life to her family and friends, always putting others needs before her own. She loved her yard, her pool, her flower gardens and her home. She loved being the oldest of a group of much younger Soccer parents, cheering on her son Todd and his teammates, and her presence at all of the games will be missed. She spent many years enjoying all of her children’s pursuits and talents, as well as supporting Gil in his love of auto racing. Marilyn enjoyed the good things in life – dancing, singing, boating, laughing, cheering and crying. A White Russian will never be drunk without thoughts of Marilyn in the future.
