It was great fun living in the same neighborhood and being high school classmates. You were always a good friend, and we had much in common. I'm sorry we lost touch over the decades, but you'll always be remembered as a talented, kind person. Rest in peace Marilyn.

I am so sorry to hear about Marilyn's passing. I meant Marilyn and Oliver a few years ago when I went with my sister (Joan) to her art class in Waddington. Marilyn was so nice and very artistic. I loved her paintings and design. She was very talented. Thoughts and prayers are with her family and my sister Joan and I are going to miss her very much.

Marilyn was a hard working spitfire with a kind heart and soul. I will remember her work at the Waddington Library, her smile, and her laughter. Thank you, Marilyn, for all you have shared with us. We will miss you.
