We met as neighbors in Genesee Village apts. God knew I would need your love, wisdom and joy in my life many times over the years. Yours and Gary’s prayers have held Bruce and I in front of God when we needed Him most. I knew I could always count on you when I needed help. You also brought humor and fun to any occasion. We loved running into you at restaurants, and having you up at the cabin. You are missed! But picturing you with our Lord makes it a little bit easier to accept. God will be keeping watch over your beloved family. We will see you again!

Gary & beloveds,

Perhaps what I loved most about Marilyn was how she smiled with her eyes and with her heart. She wrapped everyone in her love and compassion and we were simply never the same. Marilyn's gentleness created the very Presence of our Lord, and when she said, "I'm going to pray," you knew that her words would be filled with tenderness, grace, and mercy. Sweet, dear Marilyn, an incredible, caring, woman of God who had the heart of a servant, who loved her children and Gary devotedly, who impacted the lives and futures of the children she taught, and who was a beloved friend to every person she met - a woman who lived Christ.

With love and my sympathy to each of you,

Gary and Family,
Keith and I are so sad to hear of Marilyn's passing. She was such a wonderful friend and neighbor to my Dad and Mom (James & Rosemary Messler) as were you Gary. She was never short on smiles, humor and love for all of us that were blessed knowing her. May God bring all of you comfort during these difficult times. Love, Keith & Suzanne Lanctot

Marilyn and I broke in as teachers in Genesee in 1970. We loved teaching and shared some special memories that year. It was a year of the giant snow storm and Mr. Haas who hired us was forced to close school. We called him Mr. Scrooge. Then there was the time that Eric Putnam and I kidnapped her on Friday and took her up north. We had a wonderful time in Traverse City. She took the whole trip as a real trooper. Marilyn had a way of laughing and making the best of life . Her smile and laugh we're contagious . She will be missed. Marilyn touched the lives of so many children both in school and life. Beth and I will miss her. Our condolences to her family.

Dear Gary and Family,

My sincere condolences on the passing of beautiful Marilyn. I remember her spunky, gregarious, kind, caring, and inclusive personality--an earthly angel of Our Lord. She made everyone feel welcome! It is apparent that her faith was very strong; she lived her convictions daily. Marilyn has earned, as they say, her "ANGEL" wings.

Praying that God will give you and your family strength during this difficult and painful chapter of your lives and peace in the ensuing days/months/years, knowing that she is, indeed, at home and at peace in Heaven, reunited with her deceased relatives and friends, waiting for you!

May Marilyn's soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace~

You are all in my daily prayers~
