Marilyn Herrick

March 5, 1931 - May 30, 2016

Marilyn Mae Herrick, 85, passed peacefully to our father on May 30, 2016. She was born in Kansas City, Missouri on March 5, 1931 to Lyle and Frances Soule.

 

Marilyn’s love of teaching others guided her to pursue a Master’s degree in education. During this pursuit she met her soulmate Oburn Herrick at a church function.  They became married on June 9th nearly 65 years ago.  During her career she raised four children: Kathy, Linda, Jim, and Jeff, while finishing her Master’s degree.  Marilyn landed her final teaching career at Windsor Heights Elementary School 3rd grade.  Marilyn was also a devoted founding member of Glen Echo Christian Church.  There she was immersed in every aspect of her church and community tirelessly giving of herself.

 

To her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family, and friends, the sky has lost one of it’s brightest and beloved stars that they have ever known.

 

Visitation will be Thursday, June 2nd, from 6-8 p.m. at Merle Hay Funeral Home.  Her funeral will be at 10:30 a.m., Friday, June 3rd at Glen Echo Christian Church.
