My wife and meet Marilyn only a few times at the Bosch Christmas party's, She was a very like able lady. I could tell by the way Reo spoke of her that she was his soul mate. Our prayers go out Reo and his family.

I met Marilyn back when I worked with her husband, Reo. She was always a bight and cheerful lady. Reo always spoke so highly of her and would always bring in her paintings to hang on the wall. when he spoke of her, his eyes would sparkle, from seeing his admiration for his wife, it went without saying, she was an amazing person. My heart is heavy for Reo and the rest of the family. and I pray that God with see them all thru this time of sorrow with loving arms.

Marilyn was the "real deal" when it came to friendship. She reached out regularly and brightened my day with cards (hugs in the mailbox) lunches, evenings out with our hubbys enjoying community theater, and lastly, the St. Joe Symphony. Marilyn and Reo: so gracious, patrons of the arts, keen observers of life, deeply kind spirits and generous soles. Friendship is what keeps us sane in life...what connects us to humanity. I will miss my dear friend Marilyn like the flowers

Dear REO and family. I remember sitting across the table from Marilyn at a church dinner. We had a very pleasant visit. I admire her ability to put up with some of your highjinks. Every night when I go to bed I step on that great step you made for me and I pray for you and the family. I pray she rests in peace and now that the pain is gone she will smile again. May you find comfort in and healing as you lean on Christ. He will support and keep you.

Reo and family,
We only met Marilyn a few times, but they were good times. We had such fun just a short time ago at the Ugly Sweater Event at church in March. Marilyn was a trooper and joined right in. We will miss her kind spirit and are sorry that we will not be able to attend your home-going celebration of her life well lived.
In Christ, Geo and Lin Mangold

Our hearts go out to you as we feel with you in the passing of dear Marilyn - we remember her who (with you) received us so graciously in her Middletown NY home. Robert's artistic memento is still with us.

Dear Bob, Robin, Johnny and Ruth,
So very sorry to hear of the loss of Marilyn; we will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers, in the days to come. God will give you strength for each day, and we will be especially in prayer for Bob and Robin, and the upcoming wedding. God's ways, are certainly not 'our ways' and we all stuggle to understand His timing......but we continue to believe, that "His plan is Perfect".
God Bless and Keep you all, Jack and Sue
