  1. Marilyn was a big presence in our growing up years Condolences to “the twins” and Margo. Barbara Seiler

  2. Thank you Margo for the call of your Mother’s passing! What a beautiful photo of Marilyn! We have many memories of your family in our younger years and we cherish them. The holidays were sure fun when we all got together. Your Mom always took Steve and I along with her to the Priory when we were younger, at first, quite scary, until she gave us a little education! Thanks for the memories and please greet your family.
