Marilyn Jane Mellon Labosky, 85, died peacefully at home surrounded by family on Wednesday August 3, 2022. Born on August 9, 1936 in Syracuse N.Y. and the youngest of three to Carl and Gertrude Mellon of Waverly N.Y.
Marilyn was a graduate of Waverly School District, enjoyed playing the baritone in the marching band and working at the family milk lab. What Marilyn loved most was enlivening her family. With avid gardening, canning and cooking skills she nurtured not only with sustenance but also integrity, grace, determination and honesty. She made a career of motherhood while forming friendships through working at various places of employment in the valley. She tended to her home in detail and never wavered in ensuring her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and extended family felt unconditional love. Her resourcefulness fostered success, care and creativity in her home. She was our rock. Her guidance, while sometimes hard, was right and kind. She never forgot an important date and would send a card that arrived on time.
