My sympathies to all of you. Growing up with Teri and Susie, Marilyn was always such a kind and sweet mom with a bright smile. I'm sure she shook her head at us a few times though! Lots of great memories to look back on!

Our friendship goes way back to the 1950's. Marilyn was a beautiful gal and we had many great times with her. Marilyn was a sister to my Aunt, Helen Bergh. Although we have not seen her for many years, she will be missed. Our condolences to her family.
