A devoted mother, she loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  

She worked as a CSM, a cashier and at the service desk at Wal-Mart.  A hard worker, she was trying to get well so she could go back to work because she loved the people.  If you ever went through her line, you would know about her whole family.     In her spare time she loved to play the piano.  

Marilyn especially loved Christmas with the whole family getting together at the community center every year.   She would make her own Chinese Christmas for everyone.   She especially loved baking and everyone wanted her sugar cookies.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Earl Jay and Florence Ritchie Christian.
