Marilyn Elizabeth Smith was a labor worker for many years before she married the late Robert James Smith in the late 1950's and had 2 children, Ronnie and the late Wayne. She retired in the late 1970's.
She was a person with care in her heart and her smile. She met Matthew Schierland, who was her companion and sweetheart for over 15 years. They met living at 630 Salem St, where they both joined the 630 Club and became board and committee members. Marilyn enjoyed that to the fullest, meeting people and having them become her friends. It was her passion.
She enjoyed all her visits from her nieces and nephews, and especially all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She always cherished all the gatherings of family dinners and cookouts, which made her happy. As she goes to her journey to rejoin her family we will always remember her smile.
