Oh my goodness...I don't know how , But I just heard of Marilyn's passing. What a great person she was, always with a smile on her face and a positive attitude. Her laughter was contagious and what fun we had at Good Shepherd, Symphony League and other community events. I always learned a lot from Marilyn and she was such a wonderful lady.
My most heartfelt condolences, Jim and to the rest of your family.

I will really miss Marilyn.

What a beautiful lady Marilyn was... both inside and out. Her smile and big heart always lit the room when she walked in, whether at Good Shepherd or the workout room at Westwood. Had I known she was a fellow U.T. Kappa, we would have had many stories to share. I loved hearing about her life growing up and the many years she had with you. She will be missed. David and I send our prayers and condolences to you and your family.

Much love, Suzanne and David

Jim, Laura and Mindy-

Mom told me about Marilyn's death. She and I are so very sorry at this news. Mom and Marilyn were long time friends thru involvement at Good Shepherd & in Kappa, plus Claire & Mindy being long time school friends. I too remember always seeing her at either church or kappa events, always with a smile on her face and asking about family. She and Jim always seemed to be together and demonstrated a loving relationship. Our deepest sympathies to all of you.

Marilyn was one of my favorite people at Good Shepherd. She always said hello and greeted me with a warm smile. She was an inspiring model for those of us who serve in the church. All who love her will be in my prayers today and for many days to come.

We are so very saddened to learn of Marilyn's passing. She was, always, as full of life as anyone we knew and so much fun to be around. Here's our best "Marilyn & Jim" memory:
A couple of years ago there was an early evening UT football game and it was hot as blazes. Some of us younger bleacher buddies were in our places and chatting that we hoped Marilyn and Jim might have the good sense because of their ages

Words can't express my sadness as I type this. You and Marilyn have been such dear friends to my family all these years. It was an honor for both of you to attend my wedding 15 years ago. I have so many fond memories sitting in the stands cheering our Horns and enjoying the fellowship of both of you that will never go away. Your happiness in marriage and love for each other was an inspiration to Lisa and myself

It is hard to imagine life without this dear friend of 75 years.
One reason we girls loved going to Marilyn's house was that her mother did such wonderful cooking for us. Marilyn,too, became a fine cook.

We were a group of 12 girls who played together, spent the night together, went to movies, flirted with the boys, grew up and married some of those boys. Marilyn chose a boy from U of Oklahoma so they sometimes had to root for
