Marilyn M. Gardner 1923-2017
94, who entered eternal life “Together Again”
July 15, 2017, at the Canton Regency Retirement Center. Marilyn was born in New York City Feb. 24, 1923, to John King and Mary A. (Kraemer) FitzGerald. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Robert V. Gardner, Sr., to whom she was married for 65 years; daughter Jill Gardner Weaver; daughter-in-law, Janie Foltz Gardner; sons-in-law, Joseph Plottner, J. R. Sandy and Gene Yost.
She is survived by her children: Sr. Joanne Gardner, HM, Bob (Bev) Gardner, Judy Gardner, Nancy Yost, Mimi (Joe) Beighley, Janet Plottner and Jack (Susie) Gardner, 14 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Claire McKellogg; and brothers, Don (Flo Ann) FitzGerald and Bob FitzGerald; sister-in-law, Carol McConnell; and brother-in-law Dave Gardner; and many nieces and nephews and their families. After her children were in school Marilyn worked in her husband's dental office as office manager for 21 years until their retirement in 1992. She then volunteered at Mercy Medical Center. She was an avid bridge player and also enjoyed euchre and poker, but her family was most important to her. The family is most grateful to everyone at the Canton Regency Independent and Assisted Living where Marilyn was a resident for 13 years and to Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care for their very special TLC.
