I always enjoyed talking with Marlys when she would come in for gas at 76 in Visalia. What a Wonderful Lady!

What a wonderful woman! She had a way of encouraging you no matter what was going on. The last conversation we had together I thought she was physically hurting but she was totally focused on me. So typical. Her smile was contagious. We will miss her but her spirit lives on in her amazing kids. Thank you and well done, Marlys. See you when we catch up.

I was also sad to hear of Marlys' passing. It has been many years since I have lived in Visalia but she was always a part of my church family and I have many ford memories of her. We shared the same birthday which as a young girl I thought was neat. Big hugs to John and the rest of the family.

I will be forever indebted to Marlys who pointed me to the surgeon who rebuilt my back and put me on the path to a pain-free life again. It's been over 21 years since I met this precious woman and I am thankful for her loving concern and direction every day of my life. She will always have a very special place in my heart and we will meet again in Heaven to live forever with Christ Jesus, our Saviour.

Marlys was a ray of sunshine each time our paths crossed. During our Celebrant Singers days, she was another mom to many of us on staff. A precious treasure has left us... and it is Heaven's gain. We are praying for each of you during this painful time of loss, and I will miss her deeply.

Marlys was very much a second mom to me in the 80s. She will always be remembered laughing, smiling, talking and cooking. Steamed Veggie night was always a good night to be at the Grimmius' house for dinner. John, Henry, Jeannie & Nancy, my thoughts will be with you. I hope you find comfort in all the wonderful ways Marlys touched so many lives.

My beloved Marlys!! I am so sorry, and especially sorry I did not stop to see her and you, John, the many times I drove right past your home to see my cousin Dale in the complex. My love to all of you.

Very sad to see Marlys' obituary in today's newspaper. The entire Grimmius family has always been such a comfort to me. It has been many years since I have seen any of the family, but I still remember her/their love. Thoughts and prayers sent.
