Mare, remembering you on the 3rd birthday you've missed in this earthly plane. You have never left our hearts and our home is filled with your art work, photos of you, and other memorabilia. We miss you. Love, Maggie & Stan

My dear friend and sister in Christ, I think of you often and love you, I admire your beautiful ceramics I have in my home almost everyday. I know we will be together again soon. I thank God for you in my life. I'll never forget you. Yours in Christ forever.... Carra Lee

So sad to lose my most irritating cousin. (She called me pain). I loved her so and expected her to be around when I looked for her. I wished I'd looked in time. Another Gilbert gone. Miss you Carol Dee and sympathy to Nate and all who new Marilyn.

PanAm family Shared by Darcy Crane on 08/03/2014 The last time I saw Marilyn was at a memorial for her father Curtis (Uncle Curty to us kids - Biff, Darcy, Bonnie, Roxanne and Barnaby) held at the Wooden Boat Center on Lake Union. My father Robert S. Crane was there - they were great friends and pilots from the early days of PanAm. It was a small, sweet ceremony. Our families (the Gilberts and Cranes) were united by PanAm. Our mothers (Phyllis and MaryLou) double -dated with those 2 rascals! I have some wonderful photos of us visiting the Rain Forest on the Olympic Peninsula with us kids lined up on a footbridge. I will never forget that day. It was magical. I also have another picture of Marilyn with her mother MaryLou and a yound blond boy - so cute! My sympathies to the family. I need to dig through assorted pictures that my mother left me to find all those memories. Please feel free to contact me so I can get them to you if you are interested. darcycrane@comcast.net 206-920-4287

One of my first experiences with Marilyn was a Covenant School problem-solving exercise at the airport, where several groups of students with adults in tow, were given limited information to meet "Aunt" Zelda (or some name like that) from Tokyo at her gate and she was Marilyn in a wig and funny clothes actually flying into SeaTac. She was so funny and mildly concerned that she might be profiled as a suspicious character. Another incident was a shared premonition about my son being in a dark hole which led us both to be praying about it on the same night and it did indeed happen and he was protected from harm, which was a comfort to me later when I lost him at age 19 because it was assurance of God's particular care for him in both situations. I loved her laugh and I will cherish the beautiful ceramic pitcher I have that she created. I just noticed that she shared the same birthday as my aforementioned son, Happy Heavenly Day to both of them!

A friendship of 53 years for Stan and 43 years for Maggie ended on 7/1/2014 but the memories will never die. Through thick and thin, our lives were intertwined with Mare and her entourage and she will be with us forever. Bon Voyage on your final flight, Mare, the "Around the Universe" adventure! Is it one-way or round trip? Time will tell.

Darling Mel Mel, We first met met when I was 8 and you were 7 and we were destined to become best friends and then sisters when our parents married. We have so many shared fond memories. I will miss you until we meet again. Love always!

My dear, dear friend and sister in our Lord!! I love your spirit and zest for life and your creative gifts!! And your love of family and friends and Jesus!! You were one of my best childhood friends from Briarcliff!! We had a lot of fun together and we shared a mutual interest in spiritual things, which led us to a deep and abiding faith in Jesus. I know you are happy where you are now, free of pain and sorrow, and we will meet again someday in heaven in the not too distant future... Love always....

My sweet Mare, We were hired the same day at Alaska Air and have been friends since. Through marriages, babies, and just life we have remained the best of friends. You will always have a place in my heart until the good Lord calls me home. You left an amazing mark on all those who were lucky enough to have you in their lives. God speed my friend, friends, always and forever.
