Her warmth, integrity, and commitment to her clients made her a respected and beloved figure in the real estate industry. In 1994, Marilyn met the love of her life, Richard L. Weaver, and they were united in marriage. They created a life filled with love and shared adventures at their homes in Myerstown, Pennsylvania, and Bradenton, Florida, creating cherished memories with family and friends.
