  • Marilyn was a blessing to us all who knew and loved her. My earliest and fondest childhood memories are when we lived next to each other in the double on Hudson St., Paul and Marilyn and you five boys next to my mom (Bernadine) and dad (Max) and us five girls. There’s nothing like family. My heart goes out to all of you. May God keep her close and peace be with her, as with all of you.

  • I am beyond sad for all the Ulery family. Marilyn has been a fixture in my life from my earliest memories. Always bringing a quick smile and a beautiful laugh. That is what I will remember. And her meatballs. Can’t forget those. Love and prayers for all.

  • Paul and Boys,
    So sorry to hear about Marilyn. I know we lost contact over the years but often thought about all of you. I always remember how good you both were to me. I was so young and she was always there to help me. I am sure she is a big loss for everyone who knew her.
