Marilyn Agnes Morrissey
August 1, 1929 – June 25, 2018
Marilyn Doyle Morrissey, beloved mother and grandmother, died June 25, 2018 with family by her side. She was 88.
Marilyn was born August 1, 1929 in Bennington, VT to the late Daniel and Anne Sharkey Doyle and lived in Greenwich, CT for the first 30+ years of her life. It's the place she always considered home. She was also predeceased by her brother Daniel Doyle and her sisters Dorothy Gavan and Kathryn Benham.
Marilyn was a graduate of Greenwich High School (CT) and the College of New Rochelle (NY). She received her master's from SUNY New Paltz and went on to a long teaching career before retiring from St. John's School (Binghamton, NY) in the mid-1990's. She moved to Charlotte in 1996 to be closer to her children and to escape the New York winters. She was a member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Charlotte.
Survivors include her four children: Katie Morrissey of Charlotte, William Morrissey of Charlotte, Michael Morrissey and wife Leah of Charlotte, and Mary Bart and husband John of Madison, WI; three grandchildren Brody, Charly, and Burke; and several nieces and nephews.
A private viewing is planned for June 27. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation of school supplies to a school of your choice in Marilyn's name.
