I met Marilyn in Racine, WI when she came to our parish in1966 to give a music workshop for our Youth Choir. This picture of her leading the choir of the Community of the Living Spirit in Waukesha, WI is from the 70s. She had a wonderful spirit that she shared with us and a unique talent at the piano. On occasion, I don't remember if it was at Christmas or the 4th of July - maybe both, she would play a medley of songs appropriate to the celebration gliding seamlessly and easily from one song and key to another! We loved her presence among us.
