She was a perfect lady, may she rest in peace. My prayers are with you and your whole family. Her friend, Kate Smith.
Marilyn was one sweet lady that was a joy to see tending to the yard during the years she and Ray were at Fawn Lake. She was a very first-class person. LouAnn and John prayers are with you at this time.
LouAnn and John,
Marilyn was one sweet and classy lady. She, along with Ray, were great neighbors and giving to the neighborhood around Fawn Lake, during the many years they were there. Marilyn never had a hair out of place even when working in the yard. I enjoy many visits with her and Ray during my walks. Prayers are with you at this time.
Erin, Kristen and Sharon, we are so sorry to hear of Marilyn’s passing but know that she is at peace. We always enjoyed when she and Ray visited you. She was a sweetheart ❤️
