My condolences and prayers are with Marly’s family. We both went to Flasher High School.
Marlys use to always tutor and help me with Algebra. I haven’t forgotten it and want to say thank you and rest in peace.

I worked with Marlys for many years at Job Service ND. I was a little lost without her when she retired. My prayers and sympathy goes out to her family. She will be missed greatly.
