Marilyn graduated from Cumberland High School in 1961.  She attended Lake Land College for cosmetology and later opened her own beauty shop in Mattoon, IL.  After several years of operating her beauty shop, Marilyn got her CDL license and teamed up with her husband, driving a semi on long haul transports.  When Mauriece’s health declined and he could no longer drive, Marilyn became a CNA and went to work at the Masonic Home in Sullivan; she worked there for several years.  She and Maurice also taxied Amish for many years and made several live long friends.

Marilyn enjoyed crocheting and spending time with friends and family, especially her grandchildren.
