Obituary of Marilyn Wise Walsh
Marilyn Wise Walsh, 66, of Archbald, died Thursday afternoon surrounded and held by her loved ones at home. She had fought cancer with grace, courage, and a sense of humor for the last sixteen months. Her husband is Thomas Walsh. The couple was married for 31 years.

She touched all who knew her with her loving spirit, and made our world a more beautiful place. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren.
