who in her lifetime gave so much of herself
to family, friends, and Yachad
 
We loved her very much
and will continue to miss her even more
 
Margie and David Zwiebel
and their extended family
 
Raanana, Israel
Marilyn was our cousin. A finer person would be hard to find. She personified goodness, chesed, and love towards everyone she met. Her attitude was always cheery, her personality was at all times bubbly, and her smile was infectious; one couldn’t help but love her! She was a giving person, never thinking of herself; rather, it was how I can help that person.
 
Marilyn’s death is an unavoidable reality, but her influence on her family, friends, students, and K’lal Yisroel will forever be strong. Her legacy will never cease, because of the family she leaves behind. They will now continue that mesorah she has shown them, instilled in them, and taught them.
We were all mesmerized by her presence in our lives and this honor given in her memory tonight will be living testimony to her neshama eternally.
She was also a true aishes chayil. In Aishes Chayil, the poem-like prayer, which describes a wife and all her wonderful attributes, a segment of one of the lines reads, “she joyfully awaits the inevitable last day.” The explanation for this is that she awaits the inevitable last day of life with confidence that she will have earned respect and honor. Marilyn, you have earned our utmost respect and honor. We will always love you and always miss you.
Love your cousins,
