She married Roy Hanson in 1950 and they later divorced. In 1970, she married Donald Schad and together they blended and raised their 9 children. Marilyn was a member of the First Lutheran Church in Lake City. She was an American Legion Auxiliary member since 1951. Her passions included Basketball, BINGO, Politics, and sharing her Swedish heritage.

Being a grandmother was a highlight in her life. Both she and Donny were great supporters of all the grandchildren’s activities. They often drove many miles to attend an event. As great-grandchildren arrived, she was thrilled to welcome more to the family.

Marilyn is survived by her 5 daughters; Constance (Bob) Hanson, Diane (Bill) Siewert, JoAnne (Brian) Gilmore, Mary Jo (Bob) Strauss, Jean (Chris) Miller. 4 sons; Bruce (Margaret) Hanson, Michael (Diane) Schad, Don (Kay) Hanson, Paul (Shauna) Schad and a special foreign exchange daughter, Silvia Miles.
