Marilyn brought so much happiness and joy to all those who came in contact with her! I always said that she could be a stand-up comedian. Her wit and humor will truly be missed. And I know she truly loved and cherished her family! RIP, sweet Marilyn!

I may not be with you this moment in time as you celebrate Marilyn's life together; but, know that I am with you in spirit.
Am watching the clock and trying to visualize what is being said during Marilyn's memorial.

I too have many special memories of birthdays, picnics, splitting pizza and sharing ice cream together.

We were blessed to have a unique circle of friends throughout high school. We journeyed through our teen years together that made each of us the strong women that we are today. Shall always treasure cruising Woodward in a bright yellow comfortable and listening to Karen Carpenter.

Please accept my condolences as you mourn the loss of Marilyn. You and your family will be in my prayers.

I remember all the great times we had in our youth. I lived down the street from Marilyn when we were in elementary school and spent many days at her home playing, enjoying time with her mother, grandmother and being awed that her father was a milkman with a truck. She had a collie during the time that Lassie was so famous.

I missed her when her family moved to Grosse Pointe but was thrilled that she lived in such a beautiful home. We also spent time together in high school with our large group of girlfriends. We always had a great time.

I spoke with her a few years ago and sadly we never were able to get together.

I will always remember her fondly.
