Our Mother, Melanie Miller Sharpe, considered Marilyn to be among her dearest friends and cousins. Mom recounted numerous fun adventures they had together, growing up. Melanie passed away in 2006, with Marilyn as one of her final visitors, and the one who could still get us to laugh! May God bless you all during this season of loss and remembrance.

Marilyn was a wonderful aunt and a good friend. She was such a sweet person, you couldn’t help but love her. Family meant everything to her. She will truly be missed.
Sorry for your loss. Your Mother was one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever met. She and I worked together at the Catholic Diocese in 1974. At that time, she was secretary to Father Pitt and I worked in the Finance Department in the same building.
We always had good conversations at lunch.
Praying for all the family. She dearly loved each one of her children.
I just stumbled across this site…
I am so sorry to hear that Marilyn has passed away. About 20 years ago Marilyn kindly took me in when I was an exchange student. She was such a warm, sweet person and I loved her like my own grandmother.
She has left an imprint in my life. May she rest peacefully.
