Marilyn was born to the late Otto and Emma Lasco, November 14, 1937, in Decatur, Illinois to which in the latter years of her life, she lived in Lebanon, Tennessee for twenty-seven years before moving to Santa Monica, California.

Marilyn dedicated her life to her children, she was an exemplary mother of many talents a cook, gardener, seamstress, musician, artist, and she made every holiday and birthday special with meals fit for a king with wondrous pies, cakes, and cookies. She loved music (vinyl records), dancing (two-step waltz), movies (the sappier the better-she loved Harrison Ford), painting, knitting, puzzles, baking, reading, and playing her accordion, and keyboard.
Marilyn was the epitome of strength and courage; she experienced many obstacles through life, a two-time cancer survivor, loss of loved ones, heartache, illnesses; rebuilt her life after a house fire and the railroad explosion of 1974, along with many historical events, she stood tall through it all with an unwavering faith and humility in the Lord. She was preceded in death by her parents, seven siblings, spouse (Donald Hall), and grandson (Nathan Hudspath).
