So sorry for the loss of this great woman. Marilyn was my friend through working at Job Corps. We traveled so much together and had so much fun. She could get you anywhere and we always had a ball. She was so smart and if I had a problem, she was always my go to, to get help. She will be missed by so many. She was so proud of her family and those grand babies. Prayers for comfort and peace.
