I’m sorry for your loss. Marilyn was a classmate of mine. Some Christmas’s ago she made a nacho dip for me to share with family. It was delicious. She would not let me pay her. I have been thinking of her; did not know she was ill

A nice lady. She will be missed by many people

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I worked with Marilyn for 10 years at Kroger. I remember introducing her one time as my boss, she told me later she was my friend not my boss.

She was a wonderful lady, one of the best.

Marilyn was such a sweet lady. I got to know her when we both worked at Four Seasons. She was always friendly and willing to help others. Marilyn always had a smile on her face. She will greatly be missed.
