To Gene and the Burton Family -
Marilyn was like a 2nd Mom. So kind, so generous, and so welcoming. She was a beautiful person and I have so many wonderful memories of Van Buren Ave and Sunset Hill.
She was a great mother and raised great kids (especially John) ;-)
I’ll always remember the Burton dinner table and the laughs. Thank you for including me.
Marilyn, and Gene, are a class act

Marilyn, you will be missed !! You were very special and I love you very much.

Gene, our thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire family. She was an incredible woman for sure.
