Marilyn would want everyone to be comfortable and so the family requests casual attire for the visitation and funeral service.

The family would like to thank the staff and residents at Charter Living for their compassionate care and welcoming hearts and the doctors and nurses at Unity Point for their kind and compassionate care.  Memorials may be directed to Hospice of Siouxland  or the South Sioux City Senior Center, in hopes of getting Meals on Wheels restored.
