She retired from Sears as a Customer Service Representative after 30 years. Marilyn was a very upbeat person, who was always smiling and ready with a joke. Her motto was “Why wait for a reason to laugh?” Her family nickname was Leprechaun due to her Irish heritage and her love of St. Patrick’s Day. She cherished her family and friends who meant the world to her.
