Marilyn was a teaching colleague, a neighbor, and a friend. She was also a longtime member of Alpha Delta Kappa, an honorary organization of women educators. She made a difference in the lives of many young people. We send our sincere condolences to her family.

My sincere condolences to the Michalls family. Marilyn and I started kindergarten together at Park School and went thru freshman year at Central Junior. She was always a lot of fun and we won a dance contest in seventh grade. She well deserved to be Miss Flame as she always had beautiful red hair.

I am thinking of your entire family today. What a life Marilyn had giving to others! We knew each other at Wyandotte and you, Vernon, would walk past our house on 22nd Street on your way to school back in the day! My sincerest sympathy, Marsha Golub Owen
