Marilyn was an officer and member of the Christian Mother Society and a lifelong member of St. Mary Church, Luxemburg.

Marilyn’s faith in God, prayer and her husband, children and grandchildren helped her through these last six years. Her grandchildren were the light of her life and she told everyone how lucky she was to have them in her life. She made it a priority to attend all her grandchildren's activities and was so very proud of all they had accomplished. Marilyn's favorite day of the week was Tuesday's where she and her sister Rella attended mass at the Chapel and breakfast at Village Kitchen with friends until her illness had not allowed her to do so anymore. Marilyn loved being a wife, homemaker and grandma.

Marilyn was preceded in death by one brother, Arthur "Archie" Zellner, her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Louis and Eleanor Jossart; sisters-in-law, Rosemary Warden, Rosie Zellner, Jean Jossart, Judy Jossart, brothers-in-law, Gerald Dalebroux, Don Jansen, George Warden and Louis Jossart Jr.

What Cancer Cannot Do:

It cannot cripple love

It cannot shatter hope

It cannot corrode faith

It cannot destroy peace

It cannot kill friendship

It cannot suppress memories

It cannot silence courage

It cannot invade the soul

It cannot steal eternal life

It cannot conquer the Spirit.

In Lieu of flowers a memorial fund will be established in Marilyn's name.

Mom, we love you and miss you so much!!! Thank you for all you have done for us. We know you are going to be our guardian angel watching over us and one day we will see you again. A mother is a giver, and what sets her apart is that she gives of her best for she gave from her heart. Because you have given so much, so often, may you receive more blessings than your heart could ever hold.
