Marilyn was born in Tacoma, Washington on June 14, 1938. She was raised on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle and graduated from Queen Anne High School. She lived in Tacoma until the family relocated to the Gig Harbor Peninsula. Marilyn was active in many community groups and was a tireless volunteer for many charitable causes throughout her life.

The family would like to thank the kind staff at Brookdale Harbor Bay in Gig Harbor for taking such wonderful care of Marilyn during the past year.
Marilyn was laid to rest in a private inurnment at Haven of Rest in Gig Harbor.
