So mom's memorial service took place on 1/12/13. It was a real joy for everyone to come to the service and appreciate mom's collection of art, family pictures and life stories. Approximately 75 people came including family, friends and care providers. We exchanges stories of mom both formally and informally. Everyone made a point to browse through the museum in celebration of her life and received their green marble (irish) and zebra marble (carcinoid cancer). Following the services about 25

Marilyn was a member and friend of the CACS support group in Fairfax, Virginia, and we will greatly miss her. She explored a range of treatments and shared her knowledge with our group. We enjoyed fun times and laughter over lunch at our favorite restaurants.
Marilyn liked to travel and had wide-ranging interests in history, art, and theater. Last year's highlight in her life was her son Mark's marriage to Alanna. She moved to Florida to be close to her family, which she loved so much.
I will cherish the memories, and keep the family in my prayers.

Marilyn had such courage with this disease and she blazed a path for many as she sought knowledge and help for herself. She was such a delight and is very much missed. I am glad I had the privilege of knowing her. My sympathy to her family.

I met Marilyn, about 8 years ago. We both joined CACS about the same time and we were known, as the "Lungnoids". I couldn't begin to say how many wonderful times we had lunch together. Marilyn, would always, have us laughing, telling us about her latest adventures.
When I think of Marilyn, I think of her wonderful smile, her thoughtfulness, friendship,caring and her continual persistence in finding treatment for her Carcinoid Cancer.
My thoughts and prayers go out to her Family, may The Lord grant them strength and comfort during these difficult days, Carol Martin

I had the pleasure of knowing Marilyn back in the 80's. I first met her when she came into the salon I worked in and had her nails done. We shared many laughs and many great conversations ! She ALWAYS had a kind word and treated everyone with respect. I loved when she was passionate about something and got worked up about it, she still had that sweet voice and just had so much enthusiasm ! When she laughed we

I am so glad we had the privilege of meeting you, Marilyn. You were such a lovely lady and I still remember the first time we met you. You welcomed us into your home and shared with us the pictures and memories of Mark growing up. You have raised him to be an awesome person and we are lucky to call him our friend!

We had a rocky start, but I am so glad that we were able to make peace, understand, love, and appreciate each other before it was too late. You raised an amazing son and I see many of your strengths in him every day. I promised you I would take care of him and I always will. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, stories, and love of history, politics, Art & Theater. You were a dynamite and will never be forgotten. I will miss you and I love you. Rest in peace Mom. xoxo

A life is not important except in the impact it has on other's lives. Though I did not know Marilyn personally, her efforts will have profound and lasting impacts on those of us carrying on her torch. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Marilyn was a beautiful and kind woman who was greatly loved by everyone in CACS. The last time I saw her was when we were both having treatments at Georgetown University. We had a wonderful conversation. She made me exceptionally happy when she took the time to attend the opening of my art show. I will miss her and always remember her.
