Cavedo and Mattie Lienhart, her sisters Jean Gary, Linda O’Berry, and Wilma Fleming, her son Louis Gallmeyer II, and granddaughter Jessica Gallmeyer. Marilyn was a dental assistant in Highland Springs for nearly fifty years. She dedicated her life as the original Matriarch of Gallmeyer Farms, and her spirit will live on through the business founded with her husband Bill. The Berry Patch, The Veggie Stand, The Pumpkin Patch, and Marilyn’s flower gardens are a living legacy to Marilyn’s courage, tenacity, and her desire to share her love of growing things and serving Henrico citizens. Marilyn’s smile, enthusiasm, love, and dedication to the core values of family, farming, and Faith will be missed by all.
