She was a member of the Red Hatters and the Bingo Broads.

Marilyn is survived by two sons, David Quilleash of Plymouth, Minn. and Bob (Gale) Quilleash of Germantown Hills, Ill.; two grandchildren, Jessica Shepherd and Addison Quilleash; and several cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Red, and one sister, JoAnn.
