Marilyn was born in Long Branch in 1933, and graduated from Long Branch High School in 1951. She attended Monmouth Memorial Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1954 and subsequently enjoyed a 43-year career as a Registered Nurse and Nurse Educator.

During her tenure at Brookdale, Marilyn became a member of the national honor society for nursing, Sigma Theta Tau. She also volunteered as a Board Member and Officer for the Monmouth County Heart Association and as a Reading Buddy for the Long Branch Family and Children’s Services.
Marilyn enjoyed spending time with her family, and she most loved being a grandmother. She was dedicated to exposing her grandchildren to the arts, in particular music, theater and poetry. In her later years, Marilyn always anticipated her beloved Saturday phone calls with her grandson Rudy. Marilyn loved the ocean and summers on the beach; she enjoyed swimming and golfing, playing and teaching Duplicate Bridge, and she loved listening to all genres of music.
