She crocheted and was an excellent seamstress, sewing drapes for three houses and making clothes for herself, her boys and grandchildren. Marilyn took classes at MATC in landscaping, upholstery, cake decorating, sewing, and flower arranging. She made many crafts for sale at St. Frederick (Nativity of the Lord) Catholic Church.

Marilyn was an expert gardener, growing vegetables and flowers from seed in her basement in the early spring, and then transplanting them into her yard. She enjoyed playing with her grandchildren
She will be missed by all who knew her. Her family would like to thank her personal caregivers for their help the last couple of years of her life. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to “Project Concern”.
