We offer our heartfelt sympathy to Marilyn’s family. Marilyn will be remembered by friends and neighbors at Towne Square of Skokie Condominiums for her smiling “hello”, kind and joyful spirit. In early years, she actively participated on the Welcoming Committee with her friend Dilys Warning - helping new neighbors feel at home. She and Dilys were the first to welcome and invite us to join at board meetings. An avid reader, she often shared her paperback books. One would know Marilyn had been around when we saw one of her little bags with books or goodies hanging at a neighbor’s door. She remains in our hearts bringing a smile from a moment we shared and now recall. May her memory be eternal. Fondly, Kathi Heller, Angie Heller, and Bobbie Kramer

I will miss Marilyn so much, especially playing Phase 10 and Yatzee, eating pizza, and watching her drink watered down wine. Love you forever Marilyn!

So many wonderful memories... many a card and or dice game, to many meals to count, and laughter abound discussing childhood memories. Aunt Marilyn was so full of joy and laughter she was a magnet for family and friends. Her welcoming heart and soul encouraged everyone to STOP IN for a visit. I Thought Of You With Love Today Author Unknown I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new I thought about you yesterday and days before that too, I think of you in silence I often speak your name All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart.
