Marilyn Bailey Hagen

June 17, 1946September 25, 2019

Marilyn Bailey Hagen, 73, was born June 17, 1946 and passed away peacefully to be with Jesus on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

Marilyn is survived by her husband, Don; sons, Brian and James; daughter-in-law, Kim; grandchildren, Nathan, Kyle, Casey, Kristen, and Cody; great grandchildren, Karina, Carter, Ruslan, Anna, and Easton; sisters, Anita, Joanne and Mary; brothers, Ron and Tom.

Marilyn was a faithful and loving wife; an amazing mom; a wonderful second mom; a nana who was always there with a hug and kind, encouraging words; a loving daughter; a sister who was loved very much; a friend who was true; she was the person to go to for talking things through and to give guidance; she was an example for all to follow.

Mom and nana always made her home a welcoming and comfortable place to go. She always dressed nicely, with her hair fixed just right and finished with a spray of Chantilly perfume.

Marilyn; our mom; our nana; was kind and generous to all those she met. Always looking to help others around her. She gave of herself and she gave to help others that had a material need. She put others above herself always. Her sensitive nature and her love for her Savior Jesus steered her words and actions toward others. Marilyn was one you do not meet everyday- she was a beautiful precious pearl that we will miss so much.

Marilyn was 7 years older then I was. I remember sitting on the couch , Mom was testing me with flash cards (math) and Marilyn was across the room standing on the stairs giving me the answers ,until Mom noticed me looking over each time I answered. That Was The End Of That!!

I met Marilyn at the front desk of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Minot, ND. I worked evenings and nights in the lab and would visit the front desk on slow nights. As our friendship grew, Marilyn taught me about faith, family and the Word of God. She was my mentor, my sister in Christ Jesus and my best friend. Her family was and is my family. I will never be able to thank her for all she gave to me, the difference she made in our lives and the love of God she shared. Rest in the arms of Jesus. You have have fought the good fight, you have finished the race and kept the faith. Now you have been awarded the crown of Righteousness from Christ Jesus our Lord. I will love you forever Marilyn.

Marilyn was a close family friend for my entire life. Having known her since birth, Marilyn was a close spiritual warrior and friend who created numerous timeless memories with my family.

I remember one instance specifically where as a young teenager, I was speaking with her on the phone. She told me that Jesus was looking out for me and that she saw him there with me. This was amazing to me as she was almost a thousand miles away.

Marilyn's gift of spiritual strength, and timeless friendship has made lasting impacts not only with my parents but with myself and my close friends.

We will always remember Marilyn as a one of the most wholesome, loving individuals a person could know.
