I a deeply sad to learn of Marilyn's passing in the NC ADVERTISER.
Marilyn was my Administrative Assistant at Raveis Real Estate
in New Canaan in the late 90's. We were very close friends and I
cried at dinner as she and Ed and Jack and I said goodby. They moved to North Carolina and were closer to Jay and Jon, both
of whom I know through our many conversations about family.I always knew about Ed's girls and was around when everyone flew
to "Bali"??? for a very special wedding. I lost touch with her some time after Ed passed away. She was thinking of moving nearer to Jay and his family. The Christmas cards stopped and I think I tried to call her - too long ago to remember exactly how we stopped communicating. She has been a significant part of a period of my life
and I regret to learn she suffered from Dementia at the end. (My
assumption regarding Alzheimers - which I will send in her memory)
Her photo I remember - that's the suit she wore at Roger Sherman Inn party after she and Ed were married. Lovely memories,

My birthday is October 7th - we were under the same LIBRA sign.

Marilyn was the mother in law of my best friend Julie & her son Jay. I remember her as being a classy, lovely lady. She will be missed by all who knew her.
