Grammy was a wonderful cook! Even in the later years she carried on her traditions with help from her Grandchildren. Wether it be helping her stir the gravy continuously or filling the deviled eggs and many more! Her specific ways of cleaning and gardening has trickled down through the family. Grammy gave the best hugs and it was always a sweet sound to hear her laugh at our shenanigans!

We love and miss our Grammy!

Marilyn was always willing to help with the annual Easter play. Even when she had some medical challenges she was there helping me with whatever she was able to do and this was so encouraging to me. She always had kind and encouraging words. She was a great example of a prayer warrior. I will miss her.
