As a teenager, Marilyn loved to dance. As an adult, she was very excited to be the volunteer fire chief for the Evansville Fire Department. Throughout much of her later adult life, she struggled with weight loss, but by 1976 she had lost enough weight to be the TOPS Wyoming State Chapter Queen. Marilyn was very active in her church, the Epilepsy Support Group and the Brain Injury Support Group. Memorials can be sent to either of these groups, Central Wyoming Hospice or Boyd Avenue Baptist Church.
Marilyn worked hard to get her GED in her later years and her family was very proud of her accomplishment.
