Marilyn was born in Marshfield on March 12, 1933, to the late Walter Scott and Ruth V. (Harris) Milne. She was raised in Marshfield and graduated from Marshfield High School, where she lettered in many sports and cheerleading. She earned a master's degree in education from Bridgewater State College and taught fifth grade for the Plymouth Public Schools for twenty-six years until her retirement. She liked ice skating, horseback riding, swimming, and playing piano. She enjoyed sewing for the grandchildren and created amazing Halloween costumes and cozy pajamas. Growing up in Marshfield, Marilyn had strong ties to the Marshfield Fair. At a young age, she served as an usher and later introduced her children to the many activities that could be experienced at the fair, most notably horse racing. She loved playing at the casino, as well as cruising and visiting Disney World with her family. She was known for her sense of humor and hearty laugh.
