Marilyn grew up in Illinois, but since marrying Dean, has lived in Ohio, Wisconsin, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and Dallas, Texas, where they have been for the last 35 years.
Their daughter, Susan, and son, Mike, (wife Allison), live in the Dallas area. James and his wife Sang live in California. Robert and his wife Mary make their home in China. Scott and his wife Pam live in Florida. Granddaughter Ashley lives in Florida with her husband, Randall and their children, Braelynn and Gavin Dean. Granddaughter Amber, her husband, Justin, and their children, Emma, Owen, and Elle have recently moved from Florida to Frisco, Texas.
Family reunions occur as often as possible, usually in Texas, Florida, or Colorado. In the best of all possible worlds they would have a little lodge in Colorado--and Marilyn would be there every summer.
