WOLFE  Marilyn

Marilyn G. Wolfe, 87, of Palm Coast passed away peacefully on March 24, 2017 at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center’s Hospice Unit in Daytona Beach.

She was pre-deceased by her loving husband of 66 years, Joseph (Joe) Wolfe. Marilyn and Joe moved to Palm Coast from Key Largo in 2002.

Marilyn leaves behind to cherish her memory: daughters Teresa Hinton of Key Largo, Jeane (Vin) Stigliano and Linda (Bob) Jaeger of Palm Coast. She is also survived by 5 grandchildren: Robin and Chris (Pam) Jaeger, Joe and Rob Stigliano, and Stephen Taggart; 3 great-grandchildren: Renee, Kate and Reid Jaeger; and a brother, Arthur (Del) Hughes of Massachusetts.

Born in Brooklyn, NY to Charles and Helen (Rodman) Hughes, Marilyn worked as a bookkeeper in Manhattan until her first child was born and then devoted her life to her family. She had a happy spirit that was contagious and loved to be with friends. Throughout her life, Marilyn endeavored to keep family members close; she embraced her role as wife, mother and grandmother with vigor and a sense of humor. Marilyn was always the friend who called and checked in with others to make sure they did not feel alone. Just mention a bit of a problem and you were added to her prayer list.

Marilyn enjoyed life and was thankful for her many blessings, one of which was the opportunity to journey on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje. Marilyn volunteered in many capacities: she ran fundraisers for her parish and the missions; she typed for and assisted the teachers when her girls were in elementary school; and she performed in the variety shows put on by the Rosary Society. In addition, she served as a Eucharistic Minister at St. Louis de Montfort Church in Sound Beach, NY and San Pedro Church in Key Largo, FL.

She enjoyed bowling, ceramics, puzzles of all types, watching wildlife, especially birds and whales while visiting Jeane in Maui. Above all, she loved being with her family. Her presence will be missed, but she will always be in our hearts.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, Belle Terre Parkway, Palm Coast at 11:00 AM on Monday, April 10. Visitation will take place in the Memorial Room for an hour before the Mass. A luncheon will take place at the Columbian Club following the internment in the Columbarium at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to McAuley Ministries or to any branch of Hospice.
