Marilyn Arlene Cohen, born Marilyn Glucksman on June 4, 1930 in the Bronx, was a proud wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who lived each day of her nearly 89 turns around the sun for her family and for life’s simple pleasures—a jumbo word search, a lobster tail, children’s laughter.

She lived in Brooklyn, Queens, Indiana and Florida, but never shed her Bronx accent and would return to her birth borough for the last years of her life.

She preferred her lipstick red and her chocolate milky, and emanated pure lovingkindness at every touchpoint in her life, no matter what the circumstances.

She took her last breath peacefully surrounded by four generations of family and the most caring staff and Sisters at Providence Rest Nursing Home.

She is survived by her son and daughter and their spouses, four grandchildren and their spouses, and four great-grandchildren.

She will live on in the many lives she touched and in all she taught us about compassion, kindness and love.
