Marilyn Mildred Moore

Marilyn Mildred (Wilson) Moore

August 25, 1933 – February 7, 2018

Born to the late Wilbur and Harriette Wilson – Marilyn was the 10th out of 11 children born in Delaware, Ohio, where she attended Delaware County public schools.

One day her cousin Charles “Manny” Woodson brought his best friend William Moore to Delaware, Ohio to meet some of his cousins. It was at the Liberty Club, across the street from Marilyn’s house, where the two met.   Marilyn quickly became the apple of William’s eye and she was smitten by meeting him as well.   From that enchanted moment they fell in love and were married February 13, 1953.  From this union they had 6 children. William and Marilyn’s two oldest sons were born in Columbus, Ohio. During a brief move to Norfolk, Virginia they had two children and moved back to Columbus to have two more children.  It takes a village to raise a family.

After the death of the love of her life Marilyn finished raising Roger and Tina, began to travel, and visiting her cousins and friends. Marilyn LOVED the Cleveland Browns! You should see her in her Cleveland Browns leggings and tee shirt! The Ohio State Football, Basketball team, and Tiger “Tajer” Woods.  Marilyn had many hobbies, and kept busy. She spent timeless hours crocheting, knitting, and quilting.   She made sure everyone had a crochet or knitted dish cloth, pot holder, poncho, hat, scarf, or an afghan. When you get married, she’d make a quilt. But if you were having a baby, you could get baby botties, bibs, blankets, mittens, and head bands.  Marilyn could also be found working her seek and find puzzles.  She Loved to talk to and talk about her family- the Wilsons and the Woodsons, and never missed the Wilson reunion in all her years. Everyone knows that if you start a conversation that she liked she would talk your ear off.

Marilyn lived and enjoyed her life. As she entered into her twilight years, her daughter Tina became her care giver. For the last 10 years she has lived the life of a Queen and well deserved. She would often go to St. Stephens Community Center and the Gillie Senior Citizens Center where she could practice her craft of crochet and knitting.  At the center she would donate her crochet and knitted baby hats for premature babies. Doing this brought her much joy.   Marilyn also enjoyed painting oil and water color pictures.  Some of her pictures have been displayed at the Janis Center at the Ohio State Fair. Lately, her favorite past time was watching the Home Shopping Network.  Every Christmas all of her immediate family and close friends would reap the benefits of her love to shop and get everything that they sold.   HSN will miss her and so will we…….

In the last 6 months Marilyn health had declined drastically. Her body was tired, and after it had done all it could do, her soul answered God’s call. It was time to see Bill, Mom, Dad, Sisters and Brothers. Marilyn Mildred Moore received her wings on Wednesday February 7, 2018 41 years and one day after her beloved Bill.
