Our mom spent years working with troubled teens as an school administrative assistant, a job she loved, she knew each child and cared for each one. She is still in contact with many of the students, this gave her a soft spot in her heart for teens and made her a stalwart companion of the teens in her orbit, giving guidance and love, they will never forget her wise council or unconditional love.Marilyn was born to John and Madora Wiswell on May 25, 1941.
