Marilyn will be missed by many, Marilyn was like a mother I didn't have( mine passed away at the age of 51 with cancer). She came to the Salisbury Church and was loved right away by all the kids, she stepped up and became a Sunday school teacher, a teacher @ VBS, ( two younger girls loved her like there Grandmother they didn't have, Marilyn gave me a scrap book she made of the Church and all the kids afew months back, and I can say ,it brought tears to my eyes. There was pictures of my Mother and Marilyn @ Church camp, my younger brother, and cousins, my two girls (all grown up now). I will always hold the scrap book close to my heart. Marilyn loved Quilting and @ one visit she got out ALL of her Mothers Quilts to show me, Being a quilters also ,I was in Heaven, we shared stories of her Mother and all her sewing, crafts. I could not be leave all the wonderful pictures that were in the rooms of her home that her Mother had sewn, and her Father's work with wood, was right up there also, Marilyn loved each and every one of them. Even though Marilyn was sick she wanted nothing more to sit at the dinning room and work on her Quilts.( if you would find it in your heart I would cherish one of those Quilts very much ).I will be having a Quilt show @ the Church this fall and it would be an honor to be able to show Marilyn's Quilts. I fore one will miss Marilyn more than works can tell, Deanna Buckley, Springfield,ILL

To all of Marilyn's family, I want to send my condolences to you and let you know that I valued the friendship I had with Marilyn over many years and will surely miss her now. She was a dear heart and fun to be with. I will hold fond memories of our times spent together. Marilyn loved life and held to Godly standards of loyalty, honor, integrity, and virtue. She spoke freely when it came to her relationship with Jesus and how she was putting her trust in Him throughout the duration of the illness she suffered, yet never with any complaints. Marilyn was a remarkable woman! I will always remember Marilyn, and I will certainly miss her a lot.

Marilyn was my Sunday School teacher back in the 80's at Salisbury Christian Church in Salisbury Illinois. I have many memories of her & our time together in church back then. As I grew up I lost contact with her but my mom managed to keep in touch & 30 years later she still asked about me & when the chance arose a few years ago I was excited to get to see her again. The memories of her will stay with me forever & the many Christmas ornaments & other things she helped me make as a child. I wish my children could have spent the time with her that I did & learned even just a few things from her. The amount of compassion she had was out of this world, she guided & loved us Sunday School kids as if we were her own & brought us all closer to God with her caring heart! My deepest sympathy & condolences to her family & loved ones. Rest peacefully with our maker Marilyn & I will see you again one day.

Marilyn was a loving and devoted person, that was a wonderful daughter and a good member of East Petersburg Home Extension.
She had many talents in needlework. A
faithful Christian and friend who endured much pain and suffering in her
declining health but very optimistic
with no complaints.
