Joyce Marilyn Addy

August 18, 1930September 7, 2020

J. Marilyn Addy (Marshall) passed away on September 7, 2020.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 66 years, Fred, her three children, Deborah Daniels, her husband Brad and their three children, her son Bill, his wife Lydia and their four children, and her son Brian, his wife Jean and their three children.

Marilyn was born on August 18, 1930 in Detroit, Michigan and graduated in 1953 with a degree in public school music from Michigan State University.

Marilyn met her future husband when both were freshmen at MSU. They were married in 1954 immediately prior to his reporting for active duty as a Second Lieutenant in the Air Force. She worked several years as a public school music teacher in Dearborn, MI and Park Forest, II, and then settled into what she considered was her finest role, that of loving wife, mother and homemaker. She brought joy and happiness to her family and the many lives she touched during her life. Fred always credited her with being a major factor in his business success due to her outgoing personality and personal charm.

Marilyn was such a cheerful supporter of the opera and catching her enthusiasm was a big part of her friendship with so many of us. We will always remember her kindness and generosity, and her musical talent!

The photo of her is exactly the way I remember Aunt Marilyn. She was always so much fun to be with, and that smile went on forever! Wishing you all peace and sending our love.

Marilyn was a dear friend of mine. The Sharratt's and the Addy's played bridge together as couples and Marilyn and I were in several women's bridge groups. We socialized as couples at Austin Country Club and at parties in our homes. I visited Marilyn in the Memory Care section of Querencia a few years ago on her birthday and was welcomed by her incredible smile. I often remarked to our mutual friends that Marilyn was ALWAYS UPBEAT. She loved her "Daddy Addy" and her children. I would often call her J. Marilyn and she would call me Marilyn J. (for Jeanne). I'll remember her with love. She will be a new brilliant star in the heavens. Marilyn Sharratt
