She loved to do crafts and made many things for her home. Her home was beautiful, and a great testament of that. She volunteered at the local crisis center. She was involved in many groups within the community.
Even through the struggles of raising visually impaired children, while also visually impaired, she dedicated her life to her children loving them unconditionally. Marilyn was the cornerstone of the family. She loved being a mother and providing for her children to the best of her abilities.

Marilyn had great love for everyone and became a born again Christian in 1985.
She loved crosses, butterflies, angels, wind chimes, music boxes, and bells.
Marilyn was a breast cancer survivor along with other health struggles throughout her life.Β Even though she struggled, she was still able to accomplish many amazing things.
