Condolence From: Cheri Hicks
Condolence: Dear Linda,
So many memories it's hard to choose just one. Harder still, the fact that both your dad and mom are gone. I knew them my whole life. What a blessing they were to both me and my Gram. I remember one particular day Gram and I were working in the garden when your dad drove up, and called out to Gram. When Gram walked over, he told her to hold out her hand, he placed 5 , $100 bills in her hand. He told her he had had a good day at the shop. Got in his car and drove off. He never knew how badly we needed that money. Gram and I wept. Because of that one act of kindness, I have paid it forward numerous times. With your mom, she taught me my work ethic. From Sun up to Sun down Marilyn was working! I'm in the church today because of Herb, Marilyn and my Gram. Of course, if it hadn't been for them I could never have gone to BCA. I can just hear God saying "Well done thy good and faithful servant. " it is time for your mom and dad to rest. Our love and deepest sympathy to each of you. Randy and Cheri

Condolence From: Rudnik/Paige Families
Condolence: As a kid, I went to the Delton church and got to know the Rorabecks well. I remember Marilyn in her kitchen, and how good their home smelled. Herb could be found in his shop among many tools, some of which my brother wound up selling for him. I remember when my family hit a financial low point, Herb let us raid his corn field. We filled up the back of a pick-up and spent a couple days cooking and freezing the corn. The juice from the corn even made it to our ceiling! What a mess! It was good corn though. Both of them were very loving toward kids, and my brother Jeremy and I were treated like grandchildren. My dad got a lot of his tools in his garage from them,and I am sure many of them are still there. When I think of Marilyn, I think of the tidy lady I remember who always had the exact same perfect hair and perfume. She was consistently a perfect example of a Christian lady. We will always remember her.

Condolence: My dear sweet Auntie Marilyn (my dads sister) best known for her freezers full of ice cream, homemade canned peaches and beautiful long hair, that no one knew about because she always wore it in a bun! But most of all-her heart of pure gold💛

Condolence From: Marion Coppock
Condolence: My memories are from 1975-1977. I was a member of the Delton SDA Church. Marilyn was the Sabbath School teacher, for my children. We worked together in Vacation Bible School. It was a pleasure to work with her.
She also helped with my boys if I needed a babysitter.
Whenever when we were back in the area I always tried to visit their home. Someday when the trumpet sounds and Jesus comes we will be reunited in our heavenly home.
May we all be ready and waiting for that great day.

Condolence From: John A Rorabeck
Condolence: I have fond memories of visiting "the farm," my father's, Richard's, childhood home. Dad would often drive my sister, Donna, and me out there on a Sabbath afternoon, sometimes stopping at the nearby Willison farm to see the dairy cows. Frequently Marilyn would be cutting out felt characters for the Sabbath School children teeaching aids as she shared stories and her special brand of wisdom with us. A favorite memory was gathering for the July campmeetings at Grand Ledge. Herb would "hold court" at the tent site near the main pavillion capable of holding nearly a third of the 50,000 attendees on a Sabbath. Marilyn would rule the kitchen. We cousins gathered at the back of the tent, susally surrounding Billy Young and his gitaur. Certainly reunions in heaven will look much like those afternoons (minus the nearby traffic noise).

Condolence: To my beloved Aunt Marilyn and her family during this time of sorrow. Aunt Marilyn was a giving soul, who radiated joy, and blessed many lives. She reminded me of sunshine -- light and gladness. May she rest in peace until the resurrection day. I cannot wait to see her again! Much love, Jeanne M. Rorabeck.
