To the Memory of

Marilyn J. Orsborn

He Only Takes The Best

God saw that she was getting tired
and a cure was not be,
so he put his arms around her
and whispered "Come with Me."

With tear filled eyes we watched her,
suffer and fade away,
Although we loved her deeply,
we could not make her stay.

A loving heart stopped beating,
hard working hands put to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.

Marilyn was born in Rochester, Minnesota on October 21, 1946.
She passed away in Phoenix, Arizona on December 15, 1999 after a two and a half year struggle with cancer.

Marilyn is survived by; her mother Marge, her husband Ron,
her brothers Dennis and Steve,
her son Philip, her daughter Joy,
and her four grandchildren, Lori, Michael, Erin, and Patricia.

She is at peace now.

Marilyn was many things to many people.
A daughter, a mother, a wife, a friend, a confidante, a co-conspirator, and much more.
Always willing to help with a problem, share a laugh, or just listen to a friend.
I thank you for helping me to honor her memory and celebrate her life.
She has enriched the lives of many.
She will be missed.
