All the memories I have of Marilyn bring a big smile to my face.  She was such a fun and caring girl.  We did some crazy and outragious things over our high school years.  Back then they seemed so radical but by today's standards they were nothing. 


May your memory be for a blessing.

So terribly sorry to hear about Marilyn. Besides for being a kind hearted person she was unique and someone unforgettable.  I remember her parties and how much fun she was. It is so sad to hear that she is gone, but her memory will never leave anyone who knew her.

Marilyn always moved to her own drummer. I too am so sorry to hear she is no longer with us.

My most vivid memory of her is when I went with her and her family to Beverly Hills to see Abby Lane and Xavier Cougart perform. I felt like an overgrown lummox next to Marilyn, who was so petite, and just feet away from Abby Lane, who was exquisite. Talk about adolescent angst!

I lived across the street from Marilyn on Egan Hills Dr & have many happy memories of her friendship.  Most of those years, I was still @ Walnut Hills; yet, we saw each other frequently in the evenings, when back then, everyone seemed to go outside on their patios after dinner.  Some of you may recall Marilyn's family owned Brant Sewing Machines so, of course, there was a machine @ her house.  I was so hopeless in Home Ec @ Walnut Hills - totally miserable having to do all those crafts projects - even managed to almost blow up an oven once when we were supposed to be broiling grapefruit.  Anyhow, we were supposed to make an apron for a semester project - my mother and even our housekeeper/cleaning lady were clueless - but Marilyn saved the day for me.  We put together an apron one night after dinner - laughing all the way but we got it done, on a Brant sewing machine.  Remember going back over to her house to show her parents the A+ grade I received.   Marilyn was a sweet girl - quirky in her own way - and I liked it.  May her memory be a blessing.

I was heart sickened to hear of Marilyn's passing. She was such a good friend to me. Since I grew up in Hartwell anyone who lived in her neighborhood seemed quite rich to me. I'll never forget the first time I spent the night with her and she had a window in her walk in closet in her room! I had never seen such a thing. When she came to spend the night with me, I had to have everything perfect down to candles lit on our breezway! I grew up in a two bedroom, one bathroom house but it didn't even phase her. My biggest memory of her was The Rose, that is Mickey Rose. She was so in  love with him. We use to go out of our way going to class just so she could walk past him. We always use to say, "A rose is a rose, is a rose." I am so sorry I did not get to talk with her before she died. I always wondered how  her life turned out as she was such a unique person growing up. I miss her!
