Condolences for the family of “Marilyn Dunn”

Condolence from Ruth Hoover on February 20th, 2015 9:51 pm

What can I say, To know Marilyn is to lover her. There are Angels on earth, and she was one of them. Marilyn and I go back 35 years. We worked together as a team, she would always refer to Herself, Gail, and Me as the Three Musketeers. We shared life\’s ups and downs. The birth of grand children, Gail\’s children, and stories of my family. We laughed and cried together. I remember her happiness when she found Gary. They were perfect for each other. Marilyn was the glue that kept everyone connected from 1746. She took care of us like we were her baby chicks. I will forever and always keep her memory in my heart. I was blessed to have her as a friend. I know I will see her again. God Bless.

Aunt Marilyn was not only my favorite Aunt, she was also my Godmother and second mother to me. She was one of the sweetest woman I have ever met. She was always there for me and my family. She was the glue to my extended family. Aunt Marilyn brightened the room as she walked in with her loving smile, her joyful laughter and her kind words. Rest in peace Aunt Marilyn. You will be greatly missed and loved more than words can express. I will see you again some day.

Marilyn and my mom were friends for at least 45 years. She was the world\’s sweetest person. I remember her yodeling at get-togethers. She would visit me at the downtown Arby\’s I managed many years ago. I last saw her at my Dad\’s funeral 11 years ago, and, as always, she brought a warmth and comfort with her presence. I will miss her very much.

I only met Marilyn once, at an Allstate gathering for a football game. Gary was an Allstate agent & a friend of my boss, another Allstate agent Mike Cunningham- she & Gary made me & my husband feel like we had known them for years. My heart goes out to Gary, Marilyn\’s family and all who knew this kind & sweet lady. We will keep her in our thoughts & prayers. Selden & Eileen Benjamin

Condolence from Jan Redden and family on February 23rd, 2015 3:11 pm

Marilyn – What an amazing person she was. Her smile was huge and her laugh was contagious. She brightened a room whenever she stepped in it. She had so much love for people. Marilyn accepted my family as her own from the beginning. Phone calls, cards, hugs, and love. She had such a positive attitude all the time no matter what was going on. You couldn\’t help but love the crap out of that lady. She will be greatly missed. I wish I could be there for all of you. JR, Mark, and Mike…you\’re in my thoughts and prayers. Heaven gain one heck of an angel. They are so lucky to have her. We love you. Don, Jan, Kaylee, and Morgan xoxo.

Marilyn and I always called each other \”fair weather\” friends as we both loved being outside in our yards on Lake Biltmore more than anything. However, when summer came, we would say goodbye until fall because you seldom caught Marilyn outside in the heat. I walked my dog around the lake twice a day, (sadly I had to endure the heat) so mostly during Fair weather, we spoke and laughed everyday. She and Gary also threw The Best Doggie Halloween Parties every year while I lived there and after I lost my parents, included me in all of their family backyard celebrations. She and Gary use to blame me for all the money they spent on their backyard because I came up with so many ideas they implemented…I always knew I was going back to CA, so I lived vicariously thru them while I was there and we had so many fun times together! She shall forever be missed by so many of us who loved her!

Condolence from Shannon (Hoover) Lannon on February 24th, 2015 2:10 am

To Gary, Mike, Mark and the entire family. I worked with Marilyn for nearly eleven years. I knew her since I was four years old. I grew up around her as my mother worked with her. Marilyn always treated me as though I was one of her own children from the young age I met her and as well as an adult. She always had a hug to warm a smile to brighten and a heart to love! Marilyn never forgot me after we quit working together. My mother would always tell me when she saw her \”Marilyn said Hi and asked How\’s Shannon doing?\” Marilyn and I always kept in touch through Christmas cards and she would always invite me to attend every single JCPenney breakfast. I can\’t say enough about what a sweet, warm, welcoming, fun, loving person she was. Anyone who had the honor of meeting her even once is a better person. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. May you find peace and strength in the memories of her. May God bless you all.

Condolence from Valeda Pinick on February 24th, 2015 3:49 pm

Marilyn and I were very close sisters. We would always call each other when we had something to share. She was also my yodeling partner and we use to yodel for a lot of events. I will miss her dearly.

Condolence from Marty on February 24th, 2015 5:26 pm

Marilyn was a dear friend and wonderful neighbor who was always cheerfully there for you. She will be dearly missed by all.

Condolence from Mike Dunn on March 1st, 2015 5:10 pm

Mom, you patiently taught me many things. Amongst them, the value and satisfaction of giving your best effort in whatever it is you choose to do, to enjoy time spent with family and to be fair and kind to others. You tried your best to teach me to accept the things I cannot change but that wasn’t always easy for me. I believe I’ve reached a point now where I can concede although I would certainly like to change the fact that you are now gone. You were a beautiful person and a loving mother and I will miss you dearly. Thank you for everything. Love, Mike
