We have missed seeing Marilyn the last few years. She was always so nice and friendly at the bank. Prayers for the family during this time. We will see you Monday.
I always enjoyed visiting with Marilyn when she worked at the bank and when she moved down the street from us on Madison Street. She was such a sweet lady and I know she will be missed by all who knew her.
Many good memories of sharing visits and stories with Marilyn and her mother, Vida, in their home out in the country. Marilyn loved sharing funny incidents which would always be accompanied by much laughter.
I’ll always remember the good visits with Grandma Vida and Aunt Marilyn. She always had a good story to pass along and some good dessert recipes for me to take home and make.
I will always remember visiting with Aunt Marylin and Grandma Vida at the farm. They would share story after story and there was always a sweet treat involved. She will be missed by many.
So sorry for your loss.
Our thoughts & prayers are with the family.
