Marilyn Munson

Marilyn Munson

Marilyn Munson, loving wife of Greg Munson, passed away on March 25th, 2021 at home in Canton, Georgia of causes unrelated to Covid-19. Marilyn is survived by three children – Mark Munson (Melissa Feemster), Julie Beck (Doug Beck) and Amy Munson and four grandchildren – Molly and Max Fitzsimons, Kate and Walter Beck. Marilyn was a devoted Christian Scientist and had many talents. At age four she started playing the piano (Marilyn had perfect pitch), and by sixteen was a church organist, with a career that spanned over 50 years. As a result, Marilyn made fast friends with many famous organists and was a past president of the American Guild of Organists of the Western North Carolina Chapter. In addition, she taught private piano lessons to many beloved students for over 20 years. Outside of music, Marilyn loved making art (particularly watercolors) and studying art history. She was proud of her Masters in Humanities. An enthusiast of art museums, Marilyn was happy to stand in front of a single painting and study every detail for long periods of time. Having learned German from her parents (first generation immigrants) Marilyn was the family ambassador for relatives in Europe and enjoyed many trips abroad. Her German cousins were like brothers and sisters to her. Long before Google maps and armed only with a Rand McNally, Marilyn was always game to hop in the car for a drive – whether it was a long trip from New York to Alaska, the parks in Utah, or an unpaved road up the side of a mountain. In addition, swimming or a great meal (with dessert first) always made her smile. Marilyn always had a twinkle in her eye, and will be missed as the rock of our family.   Read More »
