Her early career for many years was bookkeeper, record keeper, dispatcher for Ron's taxi business (Independent Cab Company). She worked over twenty years at Bath Memorial Hospital and Mid Coast Hospital as a cook until health problems forced her to retire early. Marilyn and Ronald married in 1957 in Bath where they raised their large family. Every Sunday Marilyn would load up her children and return to her beloved Five Islands to spend the day with her mother and grandparents, these were memories her children will cherish for life. She was a devoted wife and mother and later grandmother and great grandmother. Marilyn enjoyed spending time with her husband including their 50th anniversery trip to Canada Niagara Falls. They often spent long weekends over the Memorial Day holiday reuniting with many members of their extended family enjoying barbeques and other activities. Marilyn and Ron attended First Baptist Church of Bath; as her greatest passion in life is she and Ron's devotion to God. Each morning began with the two of them seated at the table reading aloud from the Bible. Thursday mornings their Pastor, Phil Burns joins them for prayer meetings. A Church service commemorating Marilyn will be held December 28, 2021, 2:00PM at First Baptist Church of Bath at 851 Washington Street, Bath Maine; family and friends are welcome. A private burial will be at a later date in Georgetown.
