Bill and I were members of Grace Lutheran until we moved to Florida in 2015. We have many wonderful memories of Marilyn (and Harry) who were very supportive of my work as a staff member of Grace for 16 years. We were blessed to know them as members and friends in Christ. We offer our heartfelt sympathy and prayers to you.

I am sad to hear of Marilyn's passing. What a sweet and delightful person she was. Larry and Harry served Grace together as treasurer and financial secretary. After Harry's passing, Marilyn would often sit with Larry and me. I have such fond memories of your mom. Sincere sympathy, Marge

I always remember aunt Marilyn's smile. She was always happy; my Dad called her Perk. I'm sure she is in heaven dancing with Harry and having a wonderful time. Please accept our condolences from the Hadaway family.
