Carlyle, Marilyn J.

CARLYLE, Marilyn Jean -

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken.
Shakespeare, Sonnet 116

It is with profound sadness that the family of Marilyn Jean Carlyle announce her sudden passing September 9, 2020 at the age of 82 after a devastating battle with cancer. Marilyn will be forever lovingly remembered by the love of her life and husband of 64 years, Neil, by her children Susan, Karen, Cathy, and Andrew (spouses Bill, Mark, and Shannon), by her grandchildren Chris, Matt, Jenny, Victoria, Beth, Emily, Jacob, Alyssa, and Ben, by surviving siblings Alan and Linda (Joyce predeceased), and by her extended family and friends.

Marilyn inspired many in her career as an English and Business Teacher. Gifted with an astute and beautiful mind along with strong intuition, Marilyn always encouraged those who knew her to think before acting and speaking. Her words of wisdom and deeds of love will be forever etched upon our hearts and minds.
