MARILYN JEAN REID 3/23/1930-5/6/2016 Marilyn left us on Friday afternoon surrounded by her loving family. Marilyn was born to Harry and Nellie Schuch in Anaconda, MT on March 23, 1930. She graduated from Anaconda High School and joined Delta Gama sorority at University of Montana. She graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration. While at UM, she met and married James Reid and they had a wonderful 45 years together. Marilyn and Jim settled in Pasco, Washington where they raised three children and lots of dogs, cats, cows and horses. Marilyn volunteered at her church, led a Brownie group, volunteered at the Pasco Museum, and participated in her Delta Gamma and PEO groups, while also working at Columbia Basin College for 18 years. She and Jim enjoyed their children as well as spending time together, traveling the US and the world. After Jim died in 1997, Marilyn created a whole new life for herself spending time with her children, grand children, great grand children, friends and continuing her travels. She enjoyed spending time with her friends, shopping and playing bridge. She is survived by her three children, Lorie (Brian) Sullivan, James (Erin) Reid, Julie Reid, eight grand children, Alison (Jarrod) Ogden, Jenny Sullivan, Niki (Jeff) Reading, Caitlin (Eddie) Ringer, James Reid, Gillian Reid, Jamie Kadri and Zackariah Kadri and six great grand children, Grace, Isabelle, Olivia, Brodie Ogden, Vivian and Evan Reading. Marilyn will be greatly missed by all who loved her. She had a great sense of humor, a love of her family, was very creative, and had a passion for education. She not only paid for her three children's college educations, but also funded college tuition for her eight grandchildren. Marilyn did not want a service but instead asked that she be cremated and have her ashes spread with Jim's in one of their favorite places.
