I didn’t know Marilyn well but what I knew I liked. I exercised with her every week. She had her spot right up front and although I didn't’ t know her age I was impressed that she was able to keep up with the exercises that younger people were struggling to do. She was very friendly and always smiling. She was proud of her faith and her family. She was quick to laugh and had a good sense of humor. She will be missed but always remembered. My condolences to her family. Floris
