God has received one beautiful Angel!! I knew Marilyn since i was a young girl going into the CF phone location with my grandma and then had the wonderful pleasure of working with her at the Covington Store before and after her retirement . She had the biggest heart that loved everyone and any animal. I will miss her everyday but will cherish the wonderful memories . Until we meet again my sweet friend

My heart aches for the loss of this sweet, kind, and gentle lady. She was always happy and smiling. I knew her for years and I am grateful for knowing her. I missed her at church and was anticipating her return. Now, I rejoice for her being in the presence of the Lord. I loved her and I pray her family will find comfort.
