After ten wonderful years in California, Mimi returned to spend many happy years living near several of her children and grandchildren — Phil with his three children, David with his five children, and Carolyn with her three children — and was active in enjoying their activities.
She was predeceased by her beloved grandson, Andrew “Brady” Kohn and her three brothers, John Baxter, Peter Baxter and Anthony Baxter.
Mimi leaves behind her five children: Stephen Marzo (Karen) of Hong Kong/Amagansett, N. J.; Marianne Marzo of Alexandria, Va.; David Marzo of La Grange, Ill.; and Carolyn Marzo (Kohn) of Wilmington, Del.
She was an active member of the Swarthmore Presbyterian Church and the Providence Garden Club of Pennsylvania and was always eager to lend a hand or a smile to a friend in need.
Throughout her life Marilyn enjoyed wonderful experiences at her homes in Redding, Conn., Hazelton, Pa., Seabrook Island, S. However, the place she held most dear in her later years was her summer cottage on Capitol Island, Maine, where she enjoyed days on the porch reminiscing about Mouse Island memories, watching the lobstermen pull traps, and waving to friends as they sailed by.
