It was Marilyn's wish to participate in the University of Wisconsin Medical School Body Donation Program for educational purposes. The family wishes to thank the staff at St. Elizabeth Nursing Home for the loving care of our mother. A special thank you to Sister Marie Lucette for her care and the blessings that she bestowed upon our mother during her time with her. "I like to believe that when we lose someone close to us they still live through us and give us strength. The time we have spent with those we've lost makes them part of us."
