Marcelyn loved to swim, entertain and dine out. She especially loved to play bridge achieving the title of silver life master. She was known for her feisty temperament and for “telling it like it is.” Her taste in food ranged from filet mignon to chocolate snowballs, which were enjoyed with equal fervor. A good mom, she was always there for her kids when they needed her.
