Thanks for the update and picture of Marilyn & her card display board. I saw my card so glad to know that it arrived. It's my joy to send her another card on Monday.

Wow! Ladies, you are terrific. I know Marilyn's day will be brightened by your kindness. Linda (Marilyn's daughter), Sharon (Linda's coworker) and I all thank you.

If you or a family member was or are in the armed forces, I thank you for your service to our great country.

Hello everyone. I am just now addressing a Christmas card to Marilyn. If you have an extra one, please consider sending it to her. The address is on the first post. Merry Christmas and thank you!

I think it will probably be too late to send from Canada now. Will have to contemplate a New Years card.

HI There. I've asked for an update about how Marilyn is doing a couple times, but received no response. So, I'm not entirely sure. My apologies.

Hello NJ. We moved from there to NE about 18 months ago. Anyway, yes, I think Marilyn would enjoy any and every card! Thank you very much for thinking of her.

I just saw this thread and am very touched by this effort. My mother is from Nebraska and grew up on a farm. She is now in Memory Care near me here in Georgia. On her good days she imagines she is once again in Nebraska, on the farm. I hope all is well with Marilyn and I plan on sending her one of my latest efforts.
SCSers are the best people in the world, IMHO!

Dear All. I just learned Marilyn passed away. Thank you to all who brightened her day.


I know that by me responding here, this thread goes to the top of the card request forum, but there is no card request here. Please look at the next thread for a card request.


Have a peaceful day!

Thank you for letting us know. It was my joy to use card-making to brighten someone's day who truly needed it at a difficult time. My condolences to the family and you. Hugs!

She grew up on a farm with a few cattle and hogs and grew corn. They had a chicken house and raised their own from eggs. They had a huge fruit tree orchard, apples and cherries. Her dad died of a heart attack when she was 16. She married at 19 and by age 26 there were 4 children; she raised her family in a very small town; she went back to school and became an LPN when her daughter was in junior high school and prior to that she worked the night shift in a café so she was always home for the kids and didn’t have to pay a baby sitter.

She knits, loves to read and to putter with her “tomato” plant and a few flowers.


Thank you for sending a card to Marilyn. It's a quadruple hit if you do: it's a kindness extended to Marilyn, to my sister in law, her boss which is Marilyn's daughter and to me.
The power of a hand-stamped card.
