Went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 13, 2017 at the age of 66. Marilyn was born November 30, 1950 in Kalamazoo to the late Joseph and Maria (Westrate) Hendriksen. She was united in marriage to John C. Meyer on June 18, 1971. Marilyn lived a life of service and always put others above herself.

She was a longtime member of Calvary Community Church and was very involved with many ministries there. Marilyn obtained her nursing degree with three small children at home.
