Marilyn was part of the Filapiniana Dance Company from 1966-1969 where she would dance various Filipino dances and even be seen on TV every Sunday morning. Marilyn worked various jobs throughout her life but the most rewarding occupation by far was wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker. Marilyn was a perfectionist who was also multi-talented. She was an excellent cook and seamstress. She loved doing Legos, Nanoblocks and various puzzles. Another one of Marilyn’s traits was her generosity and kind heart. She was always thinking of others whether it is family or friends. Christmas was her favorite time of the year and she would watch all the Christmas movies on Hallmark and Lifetime many times over. Before she left, she had asked the grandkids to set up the Christmas tree which she was able to see and this made her very happy.
