Rush, Marilyn Jane, age 85, of Bellbrook, passed away Wednesday, April 17th, 2019 at Quaker Heights Care Community in Waynesville.
She was born August 11th, 1933 to Mildred (McKay) and Charles Kohler. Marilyn was well-known for her many delicious, award-winning recipes and her smile. She busied herself with charity events for the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, singing in the Kettering Senior Choir, and serving at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. She cared deeply about her Catholic faith and frequently dedicated her time to the church. She enjoyed vacations to Florida, where she could soak up the sun with a good book in hand. Marilyn loved to create with her hands; whether by stitching together a handmade blanket, baking a cake, singing a melody, or painting something beautiful.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 61 years Joe, and brother-in-law Farrell Nichols.
Marilyn is survived by her son Chris (Judy) Rush, daughters Terry (John) Greiner, Cindy (Robin) Wright, and Mary (Scott) Worthington; grandchildren Kendra (Sean) Kading, Shawn (Shannon) Wright, Brian Rush, Colin Rush, Rachel (Joe) Fugate, Tyler Mallison, Morgan Bissinger, Shelby Worthington, Lindsey Worthington, and Samira Brown; great-grandchildren Tristyn, Annabelle, Logan, Maddox, Blake, and Harper; her sister, Carole Nichols of Wilmington; and several nieces and nephews. She will also be remembered by her special friends Sharon Berryhill, Penny Coriell, Alice Davis, her many friends in Florida, as well as her friends and the staff at Quaker Heights.
