Although they grew up 850 miles apart, Dick's sister and Marilyn's aunt decided that they would be a perfect match–and they were right. Marilyn excelled in her chosen career as homemaker. She was a superb wife, mother, and grandmother, making each of them feel special.

She was a member of Midvale Baptist Church and a charter member of the Middleton Civic Choir. She loved music, which included singing duets and in choirs with her husband, Dick. In their later years, Marilyn and Dick enjoyed traveling.

Marilyn is survived by her husband, Dick; daughters, Mary (David) Strait, Ruth Cashwell and Sarah (Robert) Stine; and grandchildren, Abigail Strait, Natalie Strait, Rachel Stine, Chance Stine, Andrew Stine and Rebekah Stine. She was preceded in death by her parents; and brother, Russell Andrews.
