    To Marilyn’s family, I have known her most of her life, mostly from St. Mary’s craft show. I always enjoyed my visits with her, we both loved talking about our children, an grandchildren. She will be missed, but also deserves to be with JESUS. Loved her, she was a great person.

    Angie, Judy, Jennifer and Carol – my heartfelt condolences to you all with the loss of your Mom. I’ve known her for a long time and will always remember her sweet and gentle nature. She was one of my Mom’s first friends all those many years ago, when we lived just around the corner from you all on Armstrong. Wonderful cherished memories. She is now whole and looking over all of you as your guardian angel.

    Angie, Judy, Jennifer and Carol and families,
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers. She was so kind, generous and funny. My memories of her will always be strong. I remember as a kid she always made you feel special. The door was always open. She was the neighborhood Mom. She was always a good friend to my mother as well as my family. In this life we all hope to make a difference while we are here. She made a big difference that know one will ever fill. God Bless you all through this time. Love Connie

    Memories of our fun times together have flooded through my mind. When Lewis text me that your mom had died, my first response was, “Oh! So sad. She was one of the nicest people I ever knew!” I mean that. Having grown up as a “Kyger Kat” I was honored to be around your mom a lot. She was always so gentle and kind. My father went to Heaven 1 year ago today! I understand your pain. My prayers are with you. You and I can rejoice that they are happy and with Jesus while we try to live life without their strong loving influence. Heaven’s getting sweeter.
