Mom loved to tell us stories of her siblings as they grew up. Marilyn spent many years working in a grocery store as a deli manager and checker. She loved all the years she spent living in Mohave Valley, Arizona. She loved camping and was a member of the Happy Campers camping group from 1985 to 2011.
Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband, Leslie Laskey; and step-daughter, Pamela.
She is survived by her three children, Yvonne Hoffman of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, Radonna Doughty of Post Falls, Idaho and Stephen (Jamie) Eidson of Sagle, Idaho; two step-daughters, Debi Strunk of Fresno, Calif. and Barbara Slaby of Denver, N.C. Marilyn has eight grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren all of whom she adored. She is also survived by three siblings and their families.
There will not be a service at this time. Family and friends will be celebrating her life together at a later date. In lieu of flowers or gifts please donate to your local humane society. Thank you to all who loved our mom.
