Obituary Condolences

Marilynn Zito Lifelong teacher and longtime resident of El Cerrito, passed away peacefully on November 22, 2010, at the age of 83. She had a truly spectacular life that touched many hearts, and she will be greatly missed. Marilynn was an actress, dancer, enthusiastic supporter of the arts, labor union activist, and world traveler. She had a quick wit and loved a good laugh or a good argument, and she lived and loved in grand fashion. Marilynn leaves behind a daughter, Melinda Thomas, and two sons, Lanny and Jordan Thomas; sisters Alma Menn, Sheila Wood, and Laurel Davies; niece Leslie Pape; nephews Glenn, Steven, and A.G. Wood; grandchildren Darby Fritsche, Aidan Hale, and Devon, Jared, and Hayden Thomas; great-grandchildren Samantha and Connor Fritsche and Jaxson and Ethyn Thomas; along with many beloved cousins, countless friends, students and mentors, and her treasured colleagues from the Berkeley Broadway Singers, who truly brightened her life. Memorial contributions may be made in Marilynn's name to the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts (www.eastbaycenter.org) or the Berkeley Broadway Singers (www.berkeleybroadwaysingers.org). A celebration of Marilynn's life will take place on a date yet to be determined.
