Marilyn V. Morton "Honey" Whiteman Obituary
Marilyn V. Morton Whiteman, "Honey," age 86, who resided at Manchester Commons, Erie, Pa., passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, after a brief illness, at UPMC Hamot, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born in Erie, Pa., on May 8, 1932, to the late Virginia and Herbert Morton.

Marilyn lived in Erie her entire life. She worked as a Legal Assistant for many years and as an Administrative Assistant at the local FBI Office for 25 years.

She was a longtime member of Cascade United Methodist Church and its Choir and, most recently, an organist and soloist at the Church of Christian Science.

Marilyn was a classically trained operatic soloist and performed in many local operas with the Erie Concert Singers for many years. Her passion was her love of music, which she passed down to all her children and grandchildren, reading and shopping at QVC, but, above and foremost, was spending time with her family. Her family was the most important thing in her life.

Marilyn is survived by her daughter Wendy Leonardos (John), Erie, Pa., her two sons: Jeffrey Whiteman, Phoenix, Arizona, and James Morrison (Marilyn), Richmond, Virginia, one sister Barbara Alexander, Erie, Pa., and one brother James Morton, Anaheim, California.

She is also survived by nine grandchildren: Jennifer Smerker (Larry), Mark Stevens (Stephanie) Abby McDonnell (Jeremy), David Whiteman, Cindy Whiteman, Alexander Whiteman, Megan Goodwin (Corey), Brian Morrison (Jennifer), and Brett Morrison (Rutt). She was blessed with eleven great-grandchildren: Ava, Jack, John, Rose, Jacob, Caroline, Andrew, Evelyn, Miriam, Marissa, Kinder and Wyatt.
