Marilyn was born in Harlingen, TX on August 22, 1933, to Laona and Leonard Mortensen. She was always concerned that her life be mirrored after Jesus…spreading the gospel and making sure others heard the Good News. She loved Jesus, even up to her final breath, talking to the medical personnel in her room about going to heaven and continuing to shine her light.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Wallace Ray, Sr.; her parents; and a brother, Leonard Arthur Mortensen.
Survivors include her son, Wallace Ray, Jr. and his wife Linda of Kingman, AZ; daughter, Brenda Smith and her husband Derek of Lubbock, TX; and 7 grandchildren, William, Michael, Jeremy, and Katy Ray, and Bailee, Saige, and Kade Smith.
Marilyn loved her family and wanted nothing more for them than to have a personal relationship with the Lord. Her love for people was evident and the legacy she leaves behind is tremendous. She will be truly missed by many whose lives she touched.
