Marilyn and I worked together at Fortis Homes for 16 years. She was always gracious and helpful with a positive attitude and a smile. She had a good sense of humor and enjoyed a good laugh.

I had the pleasure of being one of Ms Marilyn’s caregivers for 9 months and I enjoyed every moment with her. A kind and gentle soul who always made sure I knew how much she appreciated everything I did for her. I always felt welcome at her residence and I took pride in all of the care I gave to her. Ms Marilyn will truly be missed. Prayers and blessings to the family and Godspeed to you all!

I am shocked and saddened at the passing of Marilyn. She is one of my few good memories of Fortis. She was a warm, kind and lovely person. She was friendly and accepting and nonjudgmental She was an excellent and faithful private secretary to the President. And I will miss knowing she is no longer with us. My sincere condolences.

Kim gave me a handkerchief that read; "Friends are flowers in the garden of life." How fitting for this family, whose brilliant wonder and beauty touched so many lives along the way. So thankful that God allowed mine and Kim's paths to cross. We were more than friends, we were like sisters and Marilyn and Lee family. I smile in knowing that Marilyn is now reunited with her precious, Kim and her love, Lee. A scripture passage Kim once included in a letter she sent is one I have held on to over the years; Proverbs 20:24 "Since the Lord is directing our steps, why try to understand everything that happens along the way?" Marilyn experienced so much, but was always faithful and shared her love through her endless kindness. My family is better having known her gentle heart.

This was the day that Marilyn stopped by the neighborhood “Thursday Thursday” with her newest addition to her family. She was so happy to show off little Muffin to all of us. She will be missed by all of us on Norseman Loop.

To all Marilyn's Family,

For as much as I can I share your grief with the loss of a niece (Aunt Sally), sister, aunt, and cousin. I was excited when she sought me out here in Southport; we were living a short distance from each other. She became one of the Gulls! I will truly miss a dear friend, memories of her are forever etched in my heart, a true treasure. In addition, she, Lee & Kim meant so much to my Ellender Family in Kernersville at Pisgah UMC.

May the love of God , Family & Friends comfort you through the days ahead. Warmly, BJ Ellender & Jack Royal
