I loved my visits with Marilyn and Bill. Her love for the Lord and her quick wit made for very interesting conversations and much needed laughter! I know she is dancing in heaven with the angels now. God bless you Bill and your family with His peace and comfort knowing she is finally home. Love you all, Kristy

Bill and family, I’m so sorry to hear this. Marilyn was always such a sweet lady and a pleasure to be around. I’m so grateful for the chance of knowing her. She and Bill would brighten up my days when working at the antique store in high school (Traderbakers). She could always make you laugh or put a smile on your face.

Sending many thoughts and prayers to the family at this difficult time.

Sending my condolences to the family at the loss of sweet Marilyn. I have such great memories of her as she was a good friend to my mother Jessie Harris. Marilyn could light up a room with her smile and her sense of humor. She had a quick wit and she would always make you laugh. She was one of a kind. My family loved her. I know she will be greatly missed by all of you. Praying God gives you comfort during this difficult time.
