The world is not right without Marilyn but heaven is. I’m sure she already found Elvis, and I know they’re having a blast. She will be truly missed. Love, cousin Renee

Still doesn’t seem real. Many fond memories, you were one of my favorite cousins and the best baby sitter ever. Hope my dad, Uncle Tony met you at the pearly gates. Hope your dad has the cards ready for poker, and I’m sure your mom has a pot of sauce on. Love your favorite cousin Sue.

Marilyn’s mom and my mom, Antonia Tomasello, were sisters. In our early teens Marilyn spent the summer with me in California. The best summer of my life! After that we wrote each other weekly. Marilyn was always kind and never spoke badly about anyone. Her mom, Nancy, was my Godmother. Once we graduated high school we lost touch. I went into the covent and Dawn Marie was born. Years later, I left the convent, and even more years later she and Dawn Marie were reunited (praise God!). I remember from my teens, that Marilyn was a joyous person and always a loyal friend. My sincere condolences to all who loved her and especially to her immediate family. Marie Norman Corie
