Our deepest sympathies to family and the wonderful times we had together at Shawano Lake and Sheboygan as we will never forget the fun we had thru the years.

Dear Family of Marilyn.. We would like to express our DEEPEST Sympathy to ALL of you on your loss. Marilyn was a WONDERFUL friend. She was there in the family's 'time of need'. She was a 'Fun-loving' person and one who truly cared for others. Take comfort in the fact that she is now 'at home' with her Lord and Savior in whom she believed.
