Marilyn Ford, a 49-year resident of Brewster, NY, died peacefully at her home with her family by her side on Wednesday, August 21, 2019. She was 90 years old.

Marilyn was born on July 6, 1929 in the Bronx, NY, daughter of the late James and Catherine (Cleary) Horn. On June 3, 1950, she married the love of her life, Kenneth T. Ford at St. Brendan’s Church in the Bronx. Kenneth predeceased his wife on June 5, 1983.

She was predeceased by her two siblings, Patricia Levine and James Horn.

Marilyn enjoyed her life at Peach Lake from her childhood days and throughout her life. Her loving devotion to her family was well known as was her family’s immense love for her. Marilyn was a class act, known for her sense of style and impeccable dress. She would always brighten any gathering with her smile and energy.

I am very sorry to learn of Marilyn's passing. I have wonderful memories of all the dances at the lake with all the old timers. Those were the days. Life at the lake was good. Diann Lohrfink Coghlan

I remember Marilyn as always having a smile and dressed so well. I would see her in the beauty salon and at the nail place and she was always so friendly. My memory of her at the lake with my parents is still vivid. I can’t come to either service but I will keep you all in my prayers. Norma Tisdall Ryan
