I remember takiking penmanship next to Marilyn in 7th grade. After high School, we got reaquainted when he husbsnd worked with my brothers at GTE and softball. They were the most out reaching couple. Never forget their outpouring of Love! RIP Marilyn!!!!
I knew Marilyn for more than 20 years from her work at Ives Road Fen Preserve. She and Richard monitored the birds there, daily for many years, every other day until recently. Much of the hiking trail at Ives today started as the route they followed. They were the people to ask if you wanted to know which birds had returned and which were currently active. She also knew a lot about plants, especially unusual plants that hadn’t been seen at the preserve before or special plants in out-of-the-way locations. On several occasions, she alerted me to invasives that needed to be dealt with. She was a source of history about the preserve even from the time before it became a preserve. Her colorful personality could always be counted on to liven things up. Her passing leaves a hole that cannot be filled.
I am so saddened to hear of your mother's passing! I will never forget her and the good times we all had in our younger, crazier days. She was a "cool mom" and I think of you all alot! Love to you, Stacy and Sabra!
