- This makes us so sad. We would take Marilyn to mass on Thursdays. Often she would tell me no, but I’d send my husband into her and a few minutes later here they’d come! She could be cantankerous... but he could always get a smile out of her. She was a very special lady and we liked her a lot. We will miss her!
