Thank you for signing Marilyn Clausen's Guestbook
Marilyn was certainly loved by all of her PEO sisters. Her smile would light up a room. I have many wonderful memories of Marilyn. Her great spirit and love for her family stood out when you got to know this sweet woman. She was so proud of her family and loved them deeply.
Hugs to each of you,
