Our dear mother and grandmother, Marilyn Maricic, passed away at the age of 85 on November 18th in her home in Kirkland, Washington where she had lived since 1975. She was born September 15, 1927 in Queens, New York City.
Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Matthew Maricic Jr. and her son, Ronald Maricic. She is survived by her children Diana Cronin, Matthew Maricic III and Andrea Maricic; 8 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
Strength personified. Marilyn fought cancer with remarkable resilience and composure. From humble beginnings, she was a role model to her children and grandchildren, teaching them to appreciate their family and the little things in life.
