Marilyn enjoyed her many flower gardens and was a former member of the Yarmouth Garden Club. She was an avid bird watcher, but most of all loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed making crafts and was an accomplished artist. The hand painted tole Christmas stockings she made will be cherished by all of her children and grandchildren.
She enjoyed boating and travelling with her husband in their motorhome to the Midwest, Florida, Myrtle Beach and Canada. Her grandchildren will always remember their getaways with Nana to the "Cape House", picking pumpkins in Sandwich, collecting shells from the beach, and decorating their own unique birthday cakes. Nana, we love you big, big!
