Marilyn and Tom were members of the Christian Church of Jacksonville, where Marilyn served as treasurer for many years.

While raising her four sons, Marilyn also worked at McKimmey Associates, Realtors. Her family and friends held dear her warmth and wisdom, her devotion to those in need, her beautiful quilts, and her soft chuckle.

If there was ever an "angel on earth" it was "Mom Marilyn". She was not only a perfect Life partner for Tom, but also such a wonderful mother to her children. Thankfully for many of us, she shared her motherly love & caring with many more. I was so very blessed to be one of her "extra" children (Keith you probably remember how I´d call her "our mom" & you my brother!). She was, without a doubt, the very best example of how we should all strive to live our lives. Her patience, compassion, honesty, integrity, & sense of humor (just watching her laugh & shake always made me laugh; I couldn´t tell sometimes if she was crying cuz´ she would shake so hard!) were just a few of her many attributes. You always knew she loved you, no matter what. Life here on earth has been so, so blessed for those whose lives she touched, and she touched so many. How proud you kids, grandkids & great grandkids must be of how she lived her life & how much she loved you all. I know how very, very proud she was of her precious family. May God hold you all close & wrap his arms around you to comfort you. We all celebrate her well lived, victorious life and rejoice she is where there is no longer any pain or sickness. God bless you all. Prayers for you Susie & Joe Peceny & Shannon & Shelly
