All of Marilyns children are a reflection of the woman she was. She is honored in all she has done, and all that she is given during her lifetime. She was loved so much and will be deeply missed but her memories will last forever.
God bless.

Al and I loved Marilyn. She was sweet and loving. We felt honored to visit them after church some Sundays. Prior to that, I was fortunate enough to get to frequently sit with her at our Thursday morning breakfasts with the ladies of Danville Christian Church. What a story she had about her life and family! She will be missed. We send love to her family and prayers for their comfort.

Where do you start the Carew family lived across the street from us when we all grew up together Marilynn was a dear friend of the family. Lot of laughs a lot of fun times together. Had a lot of laughs with Marilyn . I'll never forget Marilyn one time she thought the neighbor's house was on fire and it turned out to be the dryer vent. The Thomas family sends their prayers and support to the Carew family.
