She was a homemaker in the way homemaking was meant to be. She worked extremely hard. She raised five children and took care of her husband and home impeccably.
In addition to being a wife and mother, Marilyn tended a large garden and canned the fruits of her labor for her family. She was a great cook and baker. She loved to go berrying, an art she attempted to teach her children. Though extra time was few and far between in her life she enjoyed reading. As her children grew she spent time and effort on genealogy which became a passion. She provided each child with a copy of their heritage. A noteworthy item, Marilyn never drove.
She was predeceased by her parents and her husband, John G. Loomis. Left to cherish her memory are her five children, Joanne Warner (Tim) of Slateville, Susan Williams (Dan) of Granville, Raymond (Christina) of Granville, Connie Mazur (Steve) of Poultney, and John (Stephanie) of North Granville. Marilyn was blessed with eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. She is also survived by her siblings, Marlene Stoddard of Granville, Wayne Douglas of Argyle, Delores Corlew (Darryl) of Gansevoort, and Gary Douglas (Pat) of North Granville.
