After moving to Churchville Pennsylvania, and raising her children, Marilyn went on to work at many of the community’s establishments. She worked at the Spread Eagle Inn and Clover Department Store where she developed many life-long friendships. Marilynn was a loving and caring friend.

Marilynn is survived by her loving children; David A. Jones and Patricia Clark, her grandchildren Michael, James (Jaclyn) and Nicholas (Alison) Clark, her great-grandchildren Ryanne and Patrick Clark, as well as many nieces, a nephew, and great nieces and nephews.
Marilynn loved to shop, read, play cards, be with friends, and vacation in Avalon with her family. She made many trips to Ireland with friends and enjoyed Irish music and culture.
