Marilyn J. Pierce

Marilyn was born in Quincy, Massachusetts on April 30, 1935, and was the daughter of the late John and Thirza (Moore) Pierce.

She enjoyed spending winters in Florida with friends. Marilyn especially enjoyed summertime time with her family at the lakefront cottage in Alton Bay that she purchased along with her sister Lois. She later moved to Gilford, New Hampshire where she enjoyed playing Mahjong, Scrabble and Cards with friends and fellow residents of Wesley Woods. Marilyn was an avid reader and always had a book she was reading by her favorite chair. She enjoyed spending time with life-long friends including Marcia Creighton, Virginia Jones, and Jean Brown. They often enjoyed going out to eat together and it seemed she was always on the phone with one of them anytime you stopped by to visit.

Marilyn is survived by son Mark Stewart and his wife Noreen of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, grandchildren Katey Provost and her husband David of Ludlow, Massachusetts, Kristina Stewart of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and Mark Stewart Jr. and his wife Krystle of Gilford, New Hampshire.
