Marilyn was born February 13, 1927 in Mountain, Wisconsin. She graduated from high school at Escanaba, Michigan, in 1944, going on to attend Augustana School of Nursing in Chicago. She was also a member of the Green Bay Watercolor Guild for many years. Marilyn married Ray Kramer on November 4, 1946 in Chicago, Illinois, but had been a resident of Green Bay since August 1955. Ray and Marilyn had two lovely daughters, Mary Matsumoto and Mona Wilber and a beloved grandson, Hiromi Matsumoto. Marilyn leaves behind a brother, Germain Friedland, Marinette, and sister, Rosalie Settersten, Marinette, and is preceded in death by her sister, Valerie Kryzch.
Marilyn worked for the Board of Education for 34 years, working with physically disadvantaged children in the primary room with Sue Ciolek.
Marilyn had strong faith in the promise at Psalm 37:29, “The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.” She spent a lifetime sharing wonderful truths from the Bible with others and is grateful for all who appreciated and enjoyed the Bible promises such as John 17:3, “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” She is also grateful for the other volunteers who worked side by side with her.

Revelation 21:3, 4, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
"See you in paradise." Love, Marilyn.
