I have such precious lifelong memories of Marilyn. My Mom counted her as one of her dearest friends. I remember right before my first ever day of school, Marilyn and Mom took me and Bobby up to the school to get our vaccinations. Being with friends made it better. She was my Sunday School teacher, neighbor and friend.
I was so thankful the service was put on Facebook. Other than hugging all of you, I felt like I was there. She loved the Lord. I will see her again. Hugs to all of you

Buddy, Roger, Bobby & Sharon, we are so very sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a special lady. We wish we could have come today, but with the circumstances, feel it is best that we stay home. May she Rest In Peace. Love, Steve & Mardee Skiver.

Whenever I walked in the door at Aunt Marilyns house I immediately felt at home. I loved coming to Ohio for visits as I was growing up and being with family. The connection we shared was so special. One of my favorite memories was playing Pig. We used the cards from the trading game, Pit and you had to put your finger on your nose instead of saying corner. It was such a fun game that all the family enjoyed over the years. Im so glad you were my moms sister! Love you so much!

What precious memories I have of your wonderful mother. She loved the Lord and was beautiful inside and out. She was always kind and considerate. I remember her beautiful smile. She always made me feel welcome in her home. May you all find comfort and peace in the Lord in your loss. She is now in her heavenly home with Jesus. My thoughts and prayers for you all.

I can still see your mom & mine standing out by our garden. Marilyn was pointing & they were talking about planting vegies. Marilyn walked away with a bag full of stuff "for the boys" & she had such a smile on her face. I will always remember Marilyn with her smile. She was a sweet lady. Am so sorry for your loss.
