Marilyn was my Aunt whom I loved like a mother. She was like a grandma to my children and my grand children all of which she adored. And they loved her so much. Her spirited political debates will be missed as well as her wonderful cooking. May she Rest In Peace and watch over us until we meet again . My love to Minor , Ray and Cecile , we were blessed to have her in our lives.

Marilyn was by far one of the loveliest ladies I have ever known. I already miss her so much! It was such an honor to call her my friend. Marilyn was so positive and fun to be around! I will cherish the many memories of our talks, pool exercise time, shopping trips, and luncheons. I regret that I never learned to play Bridge so I could play with her. Marilyn loved and cherished her Minor, and loved and was so proud of her children, Cecile and Ray. May our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences. Camille Street, Austin, Texas
