Marilyn, was a very special young girl to her honey, and uncle Joe. How they loved her so, and our families seen her love for them too. We felt blessed to met Marilyn, 32 years ago when she came to our first Christmas party . She was beautiful inside and out, with a classy and friendly manner that brought a smile to all. I remember the beautiful bottle of perfume she gave me for hosting. Also, her two very dear children Kurt and April made it a wonderful Christmas with their loving gracious manners, a compliment to how their mom raised them. May God’s love give your family the strength your family needs during this time. Love and friendship, Cindy and family 🙏♥️🙏

In 2012, I visited Buffalo and had the good fortune to meet up with Marilyn, April and Storm for a lovely Autumn walk where we shared a few hours enjoying the colorful trees and the beautiful light glistening from a nearby pond.
Mother and daughter captured for a moment, reminding us of the love they shared.

Marilyn loved the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and on a rare and very special occasion, she offered to be my personal docent to view the Martin House which is situated on lovely corner across the street where she had her "northern" mid-century home.
Her enthusiasm for this unique treasure was obvious and the knowledge that she shared of it's every detail was quite impressive.
I will always associate Marilyn with the Martin house and all of the other spectacular buildings he created and think of that tour she gave me as though I were a VIP architect!
