Obituary for MARILYN E. EMERSON

On August 27, 1953, Marilyn Eleanor Emerson began her journey. On January 2, 2015, God
carried her from here to begin her journey on the other shore close to Him. Her parents were
the late Juanita Martha Emerson and the late William Alexander Holland and she was nurtured
by her great grandparents, the late Rev. David & Grace Thomas, Sr.

Marilyn received her education from the Calvert County Public Schools and earned a Bachelor's
of Science degree in Physical Education from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Princess
Anne, MD. She took great pride in being a part of Calvert Senior High's class of '72 and a UMES
Hawks. She loved learning and was willing to take on any kind of brainteaser or any chance to
learn something new.

For thirty-five (35) years, Marilyn was employed by the District of Columbia Department of
Energy, now known as the District Department of Environment.

Marilyn joined Mt. Hope United Methodist Church as a youth under the leadership of the late
Rev. Laura Edwards. Under the leadership of Rev. Lillie Gray she rededicated herself to Christ
and became actively involved with Mt. Hope once again. She enjoyed serving the Lord in whatever capacity she was asked to serve.

Marilyn enjoyed traveling with the Traveling Seniors on their many trips. The Alaska cruise was
her favorite and she talked about doing that again someday. The Redskins was her team,
Luther Van Dross, Tyler Perry, Tweety, I Love Lucy, Matlock, Bar Bee Que, shopping and
holidays were among some of her other favorites. Her love for family was at the top of her list.
If you were called family by Marilyn, you had it made.

She leaves to carry on her legacy, a devoted son, Melvin McDaniel Armwood; four (4) sisters,
Deborah Owens, Elizabeth Bogans (Reginald); Robin Emerson & Angela Emerson, two (2) aunts, Thelma Jones (Randolph) & Gloria Mackall; three (3) great aunts, Ruth Lockett, Erna Thomas & Colleen Thomas; one (1) great uncle, Morris Thomas, Sr.; three (3) nieces, Yolanda Dyson (Carlos); Danielle Emerson & Tamia Harrison, three (3) nephews, James Kent, III; Andre & Darius Emerson, three (3) great niece, Ayonna White, Dajerea & Arielle Emerson, Dachele Kent, & Lakia Kent-Allen; one (1) great nephew, Grant Allen Bock; one (1) brother-in-law, James Kent, Jr.; god daughter, Juanita Wood (Brian); devoted sister- cousin and family, Beryle Hall (John Russell, Jr.); DeVonne Hart (Germaine); David Hall (Jayme); Delonte Sewell (Brittany); Dyonna Chapman; Jordan, Blair & Bryson Wood; Jovanni, Luciano, & Rosaira Hall, who all referred to her as "Aunt Marilyn", god parents, Lee & Melvalee Wills; special friends Catherine Richardson, John & Cozzette Gray, Laura Ford; Sallie Offord, Ruth Polk, Louise Harman, cuzo Charlene Thomas, her loving Mt.
