Marilyn was born in Albany, NY on October 20, 1934, the youngest of 4 children born to Stanley and Margaret Agnes White Carr. She attended local schools there and graduated from Albany High School. Shortly after graduation, she was united in marriage to Robert at Our Lady of Angels Church in Albany, on May 23,1953. She spent the rest of her life as his steadfast partner and a loving mother to their 4 children. She enjoyed working in her garden and was very proud of her flowers. She also loved to read, and had a fascination with hot-air balloons. She was very proud of her Irish heritage, and loved Irish music. Her house was always immaculate, and she worked endlessly to maintain it. Marilyn was a devout Roman Catholic and a long-time parishioner of St. Mark’s Church in North Utica. She was a retired bookkeeper from Genuine Auto Parts. She was predeceased by her parents and her siblings, Stanley, Jr., Yvonne, and James Carr; a special brother-in-law, Ralph Daum, Jr; a beloved son-in-law, David Williams, and a cherished cousin, Helen Fairchild.
