Marilyn J. Henchar, age 66 of Avon Lake, OH passed away at 3:15pm Saturday January 20th, 2024 at the Cleveland Clinic Neurology ICU. She was surrounded by her family as she was lifted up into the hands of the Lord for eternal life; John 3:15. Marilyn was born May 21, 1957 in Tecumseh MI to Lela Lucille Gregory and Edgar Smith. Marilyn is survived by her husband of 37 years, Robert, daughter Hannah and son Zachary; and her cat Zorro.  Coming from a family of nine, and Robert a family of five, Marilyn had many brother and sister in-laws, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Marilyn was a stay-at-home Mom, and she loved her family deeply; she literally gave her life to her family’s best interest. She was always there for Hannah, Zak and Bob. Marilyn enjoyed the serenity of her back yard’s park-like setting, helping with the landscape or her favorite book; such as a passage from Dr. David Jeremiah. She was also very supportive to help and support local causes, whether it be sewing clothes for the needy, various donations to the thrift shops, Scouting food drives, or Christian outreach programs, of which was the core principle in life; Marilyn was a devout Christian.

In the local community, Marilyn was a friend to many, and often contributed to the local philanthropy causes, such as the Good Neighbor Thrift Shop and the Community Resource Center (CRS).  In lieu of flowers, please support your local “give-back” programs, such as the Avon Lake CRS at 33479-C Lake Road, Avon Lake, OH 44012.
