I was a lucky person when I started working at SVMH, I met Marilyn always a smile and nothing negative was ever said. She is a special lady in my life. To the family I am sending prayers to all of you.

Marilyn was my student at THS and also often saw her when she worked at the hospital. She was such a sweet, caring and gentle soul. May you be comforted by faith and good memories. My very sincere sympathy to all of her family.
