She is survived by her loving husband Ron and their daughters Laura, Janine, and Janice as well as their many beloved grandchildren. Having spent decades as a foster, found and chosen parent to so many others, the list of those who are survived and grieving is innumerable. Marilyn's devotion to her family of every kind was unwavering, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

Marilyn had a deep appreciation for nature and all its beauty. She enjoyed gardening, traveling, writing, painting, and expression through art. She was in innate teacher who shared the value and magnificence of all of God’s creations with those around her.
