Brother Joe, and family ... I would loved to have thanked her for her military service but didn't know Marilyn was a veteran. It was a pleasure knowing her. A delightful lady who could be as serious as an occurrence may require and cause an outburst of laughter a moment later. My sympathy, thoughts and prayers to all family and friends who knew and loved her. Wayland
DEAR JOE, I am sad to learn of Marilyn's passing. I empathize with your grief and sorrow. Marilyn was such a
fun, full-of-life kind of person who made everyone enjoy her company. For you and all her family, I pray for strength, comfort, and God's peace. In love, Dell Ford
Dear Joe...we are so sorry to hear of Marilyn’s passing! Thinking of her brings back lotsa memories of tearful laughter, creative idea sharing and a little beer drinking.! She was an important factor in my life in those good ‘ole days at Global.
So I send you a hug and a smile. I can’t make the service on Monday but will keep you in my thoughts...

What fun it was to know her. She was a force, a tornado and a hurricane rolled up in one dynamic bundle. She was kind, mostly, unless you managed to get on her bad side. Then, woe be unto you. Always fair and just, her attitude and presence is already greatly missed.
My condolences to Marilyn's family and friends.
Thanks to Marilyb for serving our Country in our US Military, in the United States Air Force !!
