Marilyn Louise (Miller) Rhoads, 84, of Clive, Iowa passed away on March 29, 2019 at Madrid Home in Madrid, Iowa after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Marilyn was born on September 19, 1934 in Marshalltown, Iowa. She was the only child of Alvin and Ethel (Brockman) Miller. She was raised in Marshalltown and later moved to Des Moines where she graduated from East High School in 1951. Marilyn married Frank Teske on September 13, 1952 and they were blessed with three children Steve, Teri and Lisa.

She married Wilbur Neil Rhoads on February 14, 1970, and gained three wonderful step-children, Perry, Neil and Cindy. Together, Wilbur and Marilyn lived in Tempe, Arizona for six years and the Des Moines area for thirty years. While living in Des Moines, Marilyn was a receptionist for Bob Allen Companies. Marilyn had a love for all kinds of animals, but was especially fond of her many dachshunds through the years. Marilyn will be remembered by those who knew her for her smile, spunky personality and her love for shopping.

Marilyn is survived by her son, Steve (Stephanie) Teske of Winterset, Iowa, and his son Matthew (Shannon) Teske, her daughter, Teri (Charlie) Riggs of Atlanta, Georgia, and their children Adam Riggs and Holly (Evan) Kaine, her daughter Lisa Olk of Ankeny, Iowa, and her children Josh Olk, Cassie (Nick) Cooling, and Justin Olk, her step-grandchildren Stephanie Rhoads and Dustin Rhoads, her stepson Neil (Nan) Rhoads of Maui, Hawaii, and his children Melia and Ariann, and her stepdaughter Cindy McIntosh of Hastings, Minnesota, and her children Keegan, Gillian and Cally McIntosh, and ten great-grandchildren.

I am sending you love and hugs while you say your "goodbyes" to Aunt Marilyn. She was a wonderful woman and I really enjoyed getting to know her over the years. She and Uncle Willie visited me in California years ago and they were staying with me. My dog got out of his crate and disappeared. Guess where I found him? In bed with Marilyn and Willie. They had no idea that he was a crate sleeper so he pulled a fast one on them.
