Our thoughts and prays are with you, MJ and your family. She was extraordinarily dedicated to the sport of archery and archers.

    Dear MJ and family —

    I am very sad to hear about Marihelen’s death. We grew up in the same neighborhood and went to the same schools. It was wonderful reconnecting with you and Marihelen at the Class of ’71 Reunion a couple summers ago. At that time, none of us expected this.

    Now, may she rest in peace!

    M.J. and Family —
    We were saddened to learn of Marihelen’s passing. She was so full of life, happy-go-lucky with a wonderful sense of humor and dedicated to her work and family. I’ll never forget the fun and laughs we had on the Girl Scout trip to Washington, D.C. in the early 70s. I looked up to her as a role model and was glad to be her friend. Take care of yourself, be strong and know we’re sending love and prayers your way.

    MJ and family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. The last time I saw Marihelen was at Blackburn College at one of the Summer Rep musicals. She had recently become a grandma and was so proud. Roger’s True Value was my account when I worked at the radio station and Marihelen and I got together every week to discuss the ads. We had so many laughs during those years. What a wonderful sense of humor she had! She surely was one of a kind. May your memories comfort you. My prayers are with you.

    I’m very sorry to hear of Marihelen’s passing. We were kids together, figuring out the role of being the “oldest girl” in a bunch of siblings. We were in Sunday School together too. She had a great sense of humor, but could still be a nurturer too. I will never forget her.
