Marylin had an angel’s voice and even had the opportunity to sing on the radio as a young lady. She also had amazing skills on the guitar and loved to play and sing for family and friends. Marylin truly was blessed to be a mother and to devote all her time to raising her family. To her family’s gratitude, she was an awesome cook, some of her specialties included ham and beans and fried potatoes. Marylin’s crowning achievement was being a grandma and great-grandma as she loved her grandchildren with all her heart. Nothing made her smile wider than hearing her grandchildren call out Grandma MeMaw and Quinton to call her Great-Granny 8. Her love and generosity will carry on in all the ones she knew and loved.
