CENTERVILLE — Marilyn is the mother of five and grandmother to 16. Her home is a favorite gathering place for all, and none could ever doubt how much she loves them, wrote her daughter Chantelle Austin in her nomination letter.
Not only a wonderful mother, Marilyn has proved to be a wonderful daughter.
She spent years caring for her own aging mother, who died last year. Furthermore, she has given countless hours to her church.
Recognition as Mother of the Year couldn’t be more deserved, wrote Chantelle:
“She is a great example of selfless service!”
