Sorry I learned of this so late, Marilyn was a wonderful wife, mother and friend. She was also a very supportive parent for her children Patty, Mike and Kevin and all their endeavors at New Canaan High School. In particular she loved watching Mike and Kevin play on some of NCHS’ historically best basketball teams while Patty was cheerleading from the sideline. Marilyn also didn’t mind pointing out that she played some hoop in her day !! Condolences to her children and their families. 2-5-0
