We are so saddened to hear of this. Many thoughts and prayers to the family. Marilyn was a kind and caring soul of both people and animals. She was strength to me when I needed it when my Mom passed. Her diligence and care helped me though a very difficult time. She was a light in a dark place and I will forever be grateful. I can only think my Mom is there with her now. I pray for you all now. Love, thoughts and Prayers. Dusk Sumpter and family

Marty and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I have fun memories of Marilyn from our days in the Bellevue All Staff Bowling League. She also was one of the first people to greet me at the BWHS Retirees monthly luncheons. I will miss our conversations.
