Marilyn was born in the Bronx, and grew up there with her beloved sister Selma, surrounded by a loving extended family.

Marilyn has been a very special friend for many years. We shared many happy times in Port Hueneme raising our children. Cub Scouts, school events and sharing milestones in our families lives. We both enjoyed many outings with Marilyn and Ralph. Never forget going to seeing Fiddler on the Roof, it was opening in Los Angeles at the Wilshire. A great evening. It was just one of our many adventures. Just a few days before we got word Marilyn passed away we enjoyed seeing the movie on TV after all these years. After the movie we both enjoyed talking about the time we saw it the first time. And sharing it with Marilyn and Ralph. Wish she could been here to share our memories of that day. Marilyn was a wonderful friend and we shared lots of "Mom talks " about our boys.
We send our sympathy to all her family. May she rest in Peace with her dear Ralph.

Aunt Marilyn was such a warm and friendly part of our extended family. I have so many wonderful childhood memories of gatherings at her and my Uncle Ralph’s home, of Father’s Day steak BBQ’s, of watching the 4th of July parades, and celebrating Purim under the sukkot with Marilyn and Ralph, my parents, siblings, grandparents and cousins, and spending time in temple together, listening to my uncle’s golden voice. I truly cherish these memories and feel blessed that I was fortunate to be one of Marilyn’s nieces. To my cousins, I send warm hugs, comfort and peace. Linda
