August 26, 1953 - October 07, 2017
Marilyn was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. She was one of seven children born to Norbert and Ruth Schlaiss. As a child Marilyn was described as kind and quiet. She attended Catholic elementary and high schools. At the age of 23 she moved from Chicago to Johnsburg where she resided for 41 years. Here, she worked in accounting at various locations and raised four children of whom she was very proud.
She adored her nine grandchildren. In fact, if you ran into Marilyn chances were high that she would be sporting a shirt honoring the Marines or AirForce for two of her children or a shirt with a picture of her grandchildren.
Prior to her passing, Marilyn was employed at Campbell International in Wauconda, Il. . . .
