She was a bookkeeper in high school and became a tax accountant as her boys grew. The family was active in the Episcopal Church. She played in the bell choir and was also treasurer. As a family they enjoyed many adventures camping, fishing, and traveling in the RV. Marilyn had a fondness for music and playing the piano. Her interest in music and entertainment was eclectic and lifelong. She was on bowling leagues wherever she lived. She was a treasurer for her HOA up until a few years ago. Her greatest and most profound attribute were the relationships she nurtured and engendered with family and friends. She blossomed in others company.
