  1. I knew Marilyn from Saturday morning yoga before the pandemic. My wife Rhonda knew her from the Rubber Stamp Club. Marilyn would organize a holiday dinner for the club. She will be missed; she was a great lady.

    Dear loved ones of Marilyn,

    Our condolences to you in the passing of Marilyn. We enjoyed knowing her for approximately the last 10 years. We were in the Kanawha Valley Village People organization together. She was a wonderful president of our organization and her emphasis on having fun, helped to set the tone of the group. Joe worked at Hospice for a time while she was volunteering. The volunteers at Hospice mean so much to the patients and families.
