Marilyn Mersereau Duggan went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, just three days shy of her 82nd birthday.
Born and raised in Jersey City, NJ, she was a graduate of Snyder High School and held administrative assistant positions at the Jersey Journal and the Colgate Company. After marrying, she lovingly devoted herself to homemaking and to raising her two children, moving with the family to Melbourne, Seattle, WA and finally back to Florida, living for many years in Palm Bay and later in Indialantic. She did various kinds of clerical, administrative and volunteer work, and was an active member of St. Joseph Church and Holy Name of Jesus Church. During her last 2 ½ years she was a well-loved resident of Buena Vida Estates in West Melbourne.
Marilyn was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 56 years, Gerald Duggan. She is survived by a son, Rev. Sean Brett Duggan of St. Benedict, LA, a daughter, Jennifer L. Duggan of Roanoke, VA, three grandchildren, Christopher, Shawna and Jonathan Foley, her three sisters and two brothers, and numerous nephews and nieces.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 25 at 10 a.m. at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Indialantic, followed by Mass at 11 a.m. Burial will take place at St. Joseph Cemetery in Palm Bay. Donations may be made in Marilyn's honor to the Holy Name of Jesus Endowment Fund.
