Marilyn's Story

Text size

Marilyn, daughter of Basil and Betty Dundas, was born in Enid, OK, December 23, 1947.
She met her husband, Ernie, in Santa Barbara, CA, where they married and had two children. She was a 33-year resident of Lake Quivira, Kansas.
As a partner in Ernie Block Studios, co-founder and officer of The Crossroads Community Association and Merriam Elementary PTA President for four years, her life was dedicated to the service of others. Her final challenge was in spreading joy to those who she touched at KU Cancer Center. Her determination, dignity, and acceptance of all people is what defined her life.
The love and dedication that she had for her family had no boundary, with grandsons Cooper and Desmond the light of her life. She loved coconut cream pie and lemon cookies.
Marilyn is survived by her husband, Ernie; daughters Erika and Tina; grandsons Cooper and Desmond; her mother, Betty Dundas; siblings Mike, Pat and Michelle, and Danny and Cindy Dundas; extended family, Patrick Alexander.
There will be a remembrance beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 28, 2017, followed by visitation from 3-6, at Lake Quivira Clubhouse, Lake Quivira, Kansas.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to The University of Kansas Health Systems, to benefit wWomen's Oncology https://Giving.KansasHealthSystem.com/tribute.
