Online Condolences for Marilyn Wessel ( January 4, 1942 ~ December 04, 2017)

December 15, 2017
To Tom and your family, Marilyn will be missed by so many people! I've admired her for many years - she did so much for the community. And was so elegant and graceful in all she did. Prayers for all of you - Sharon Tudor Isler — Sharon Tudor Isler (Bozeman, MT)

It was fun to work with Marilyn. When I was new to MSU, she interviewed me live on local radio, a book review. She made it easy. Years later, she boosted my tax policy education extension program by staging a state-level event sponsored by the presidents of MSU & UM. She always supported educating about public issues. And, she and Tom were friends to Nancy and me. Thank you, Marilyn. Verne House (Bozeman, MT)

To Marilyn’s family, Marilyn was the epitome of strength, grace, elegance and wit. I had the privilege of knowing her for the last 30 years as a client and a friend. I will miss her and will never forget her. RIP Marilyn.... Stacy Miller (Bozeman , MT)

"Chris, how do I ever find the words to properly or adequately thank you for your support and kindness during a very trying time.  You are a very special young man and have a wonderful way of making a very difficult time much more easy.  It was very comforting to deal with you.  You are a natural at your position.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
