The passion for her career paled in comparison to her passion for her family. They came before anything else and she’d tell anyone that. In 1978 Marilyn married the love of her life, Gary John Argus of West Haven, Connecticut, who preceded her in death in 1983. Marilyn is survived by her 3 children; Robin Lee Fairchild, Todd Robert Fairchild, and Jill (Argus) Montgomery and her 9 beautiful grandchildren; Aubrey, Ashton, Autumn, Annika, Robert, Patrick, Noella, Harper, and Myla. She was a loving, and very involved, mother and grandmother. She was the ultimate tailor, sewing clothes for kids, grandkids, and dolls alike. She’d crochet a blanket any time she heard someone was having a baby, or any time anyone asked. She also used her creative talents to make the most beautiful wedding cakes. Those close to her would tell you she told it like it was, and had a wonderfully sarcastic sense of humor. She loved to dance from the time she was a child and later taught country western dancing for many years.
She will be missed, but she has left her legacy and we will be sure to honor her memory and keep her alive in our thoughts and stories. We love you Mom.
