Will certainly be missed here but now she is in her eternal home. The free gift of God is Eternal life thru Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God which Marilyn had received!

The few times we spent with Marilyn, she was always a gracious woman. I felt that my daughter was lucky to have her as her mother-in-law.
