    I got to know Marilyn at Heritage Woods while I was the hairdresser there. She was always so appreciative of whatever anyone did for her and her love and pride for her family was the topic of conversation often. My sympathy and prayers go out to you all.

    Oh Grandma where do I begin. Growing up u were my hero. I thought you were so cool. U pretty much raised me. Swinging on the front porch, going to the beauty shop across the St are some of my favorite memories. My heart is heavy of the later in life family separations. But know in my Heart I will always love you.. And I always knew as a kid I could always call 422-5973 and you would always make everything not seem so bad.. I Love you always and forever 💛 Love Missy Dawn
