Marilyn Gertrude Weigand

Your hug meant the world
Nobody else held us so tight
Or made us feel so right
No one's eyes shined so bright with love As our Mom, who is now high above Tandem Butler
Marilyn Gertrude Weigand left this earth to join God and her husband after peacefully passing away in her sleep at the age of 96 on April 15, 2022.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Marilyn. She loved being with family and friends and had the special ability to always find happiness and humor in everything she did. Marilyn was the epitome and pure definition of grace. She carried out her life with a strong belief and faith in God. She was someone who loved and cherished life, her husband and children more than anything in the world. Her calm nature, generous heart, fun laugh and wonderful sense of humor are treasures her family will carry and hold dear forever.
