Marilyn became a NYC school teacher in 1965.
On March 9th 1968 she met the love of her life Paul (and the total love of his life).
The total attraction was instantaneous.
They were married one year later.
After teaching for 13 years Marilyn decided to go into business for herself buying and selling
In late 1986 she began to feel the ills of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Although she recovered and went into remission, Marilyn decided to close her business
and fully support her husband in advancing his career In Investment Banking Information Technology.
However in early 2001, the Rheumatoid Arthritis condition came back much more powerful than before.
In the last few years Marilyn greatly suffered and peacefully died from complications August 31, 2017.

She was the absolute and unconditional complete love of his life.

  1. Dear Paul, I wish that there were magic words to say to help you through this. The only comfort is that she is no longer in pain. You wrote a very lovely obituary and such a great photo to remember her by! Remember that Marilyn will always be as close as a memory. My sympathies, Justine

  2. I will always remember the joy, the laughter and the smiles we shared with Marilyn. Her sudden death has cause great pain and grief. However we must remember the good times that we shared with her. Paul, the love that you and Marliyn shared for each other is something that i have admired for years. May god bless Marilyn’s soul and give you the strength to go on. I’ll always be here for you. Love, Patricia Petrie

  4. Dear Paul and Family, I was just looking through receipts for some stamps and found a sweet note from Marilyn who sold me some beautiful quality stamps in 1983-84. Although we never met, she extended to me a generous line of credit and graciously and cheerfully wished me a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year. I wish to honor that loving kindness by reassuring you that her lovely expression of the Christ nature IS truly appreciated and a very present reminder that she is always with us, to each of us touched in some different way by her love of Life. May you all be blessed this Christmas and New Year and enjoy the gratitude for the blessings Marilyn brought to each of us. Sincerely, Glenn Best
