The couple made their home in Alluwe and raised their children together there.
Marilyn was a member of the First Church of God in Alluwe, Oklahoma. She was a homemaker for many years, but also worked at the Nowata County Election Board. She enjoyed cooking and was known as an excellent cook.
Her hobbies included spending time with her grandchildren, attending her grandchildren’s events, watching games shows on television, especially Wheel of Fortune and the Price is Right, and going to the casinos.
