Marilyn attended Pine-Richland High School. A 1963 graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, she obtained a degree in Business Education. She started her teaching career at Butler High school and later taught business classes full-time for 32 years at Pine-Richland High School until she retired in 2005. A devout Presbyterian and firm believer in Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and God, Marilyn spent many years teaching Sunday School at her church, singing in the choir, and participating in the bell choir. She also enjoyed knitting, needlework, board games, and spending time with her grandchildren, as well as her grandchildrens’ dogs, Milo and Lola.

Marilyn traveled on several motorhome trips with her family in the United States and Canada to places like New England, Texas, and California.
