Marylin was a dedicated employee of Boatmen’s Bank in St. Louis until her retirement. She will always be remembered for her gentle, humble and kind demeanor to all, even under the most trying of circumstances. Her deep generosity, quick wit, love of chocolate, beautiful flowers, and her many Kenny Chesney CDs will continue to bring smiles to our fondest memories of all the good times and conversations shared with her. She will be dearly missed. Our family expresses our deepest gratitude to the caring and dedicated staff of Delmar Garden South and her Mercy Hospice team.
