Marilyn, life-long friend to my mother, Carol. What I will hold in my memory is a woman who was genuinely kind and always a pleasure to be near. What I will carry forward and hopefully outward, in her memory, is the habit of leaning into my faith. Marilyn modeled joy in Christ and faith in His strength. She helped me look up, more than once in my lifetime. Lord, I know she is now fully in your care, in perfect peace, forevermore. Amen.

Marilyn was one of gentlest and kindest people I have ever known. She was a beloved member of Georgia Avenue Christian Church for many years before moving. I treasured her friendship and example. My prayers for her beautiful family. Dr. Bob Chance, former pastor and life long friend.

I met sweet dear Marilyn about 20 years ago when we lived in Frederick Maryland. I always enjoyed chatting with her.
She thought the world of all her family and was always talking about you all. I met her when her hubby was still alive.
We moved away, but her and I always kept in touch with email and as recent as FB. A lovely lady. God bless you all. She is in good hands.
