Marilyn was born November 22, 1941 in New Haven, a daughter of the late James and Dorothy (Hodgins) Mahon. She was a graduate of Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven. Marilyn truly loved connecting with people and was a ray of sunshine at her various places of employment throughout her life. She was retired from Shaw’s Supermarket.
