Marlys shone as brightly as the Arizona sun as an exceptional mother, an amazing friend, and as a true free-spirited independent woman. She was a master of hard work, quick wits, kitchen magic and holiday décor! Marlys was full of love and happiness and brought a smile and a laugh to any room. She is dearly missed by all who knew her.
Marlys is survived by her daughter-Jessi, her sons- Josh and Joe, and her grandchildren-Cy and Iggy.
