Marilyn E. Case
February 13, 2020
I just recently met Marilyn. I am in the Congregational Care ministry at her church, College Hill United Methodist Church in Wichita KS. I only met with Marilyn three times, but I was struck by her resolve to make the best of whatever situation she was in. I heard about her growing up years, that were pretty tough, and about how she loved having her children and raising them. Decisions were made to move her from her larger apartment to a smaller one. Her resolve was that the new place was a "cracker box", but it was her "cracker box". She had the things she needed, some things that were important to her. We prayed together always when I was with her, gving thanks that she was safe and well cared for. She had an inquisitive mind, and liked hearing about the church. She enjoyed our newsletter and kept informed of the church. She did not forget about us and just because she could no longer get to services, we never forgot her. So, it was my privilege to visit with her and listen to a woman of her faith and determination.
