So sorry to hear about Marilyn’s passing. My Mom always thought of her as more than a sister-in-law and more like a close friend. I hope Marilyn’s passing was a peaceful one.

No one could arrange flowers like Marilyn! I loved being in Comal Garden Club with her – she was a great mentor and wonderful friend. I loved her warm smile and her willingness to be of service to her community.

Bob and Barbara,
I am so lucky to have known Marillyn. I always looked forward to your family get togethers, Marillyn had so many stories to share. It was nice having a sparring partner with such a sharp Texas wit. may she rest in peace.

Marilyn was such a special person. The Comal Garden Club was blessed to have had her in our membership. I felt privileged to have known her even though it was just for a few years. We will miss her very much.
