“Her spirit chaungѐd house”

Marilyn was a native of Lincoln, Nebraska.  She met her husband, Charles, in 1949 at Indiana University, where they were graduate students. They married in 1950 and lived in Sarnia for 57 years.  In addition to her husband, Marilyn is survived by their three children, Ralph (Cheryl), Mark (Elizabeth) Jean (Dale Miner); grandchildren Erin (Jeffrey Hackett), Kate, Andrew, Cameron; great grandson Emerson Hackett. Marilyn was always curious and enjoyed learning.  She was an early member of Lambton Wildlife, attended numerous bible study sessions, and liked to participate in many a political discussion.  She was also a natural teacher.  For several years, Marilyn was active in Brownies and Girl Guides, as leader and commissioner, and she taught piano to many students, both young and old.  She herself was a skilled pianist, with a pleasing touch on the keys and through her              piano-playing, she instilled a love of music in her children.  Her family remembers how much fun we all had at our gatherings, with Mom always adding laughter and adventure to the times we were together. Marilyn once said that her most valuable attribute was her smile, and the vibrancy that came with it, will always be remembered by her family and friends.
